Long Hands of KGB

Some unknown hackers did a nice job on March 31, 2015. They broke into web site of the Lihuanian Genocide* and Resistance Research Centre and added some documents from the file of agent Magnolia. That is, Dalia Grybauskaitė, President of the Lithuania.

Photo copy of a document of 1982 that, if real, can be regarded as a proof of Dalia Grybauskaite's cooperation with KGB.In fact, there were plenty of rumours regarding her father's cooperation with NKVD (Stalin's age title of the Ministry of Internal Affairs), and her own being an agent of KGB. Surely, she and her office has always commented these rumours as false and provocative.

Finally, there are documents. At leas the one that I copied.

[Main body]
This is to inform you that on May 22, 1982, at 22:40 in the bar of "Pribaltiyskaya" hotel, men of the special department of the Chief Directorate of Internal Affairs of the city of Leningrad as a result of documents check determined citizen Gribauskayte Dalya Polikarpo, born on March 01, 1956, born in the city of Vilnius of the Lithuanian Soviet Socialist Republic, who presented a student's ID No. 775343 of a sudent of the evening (part-time) department of the Leningrad State University named after Zhdanov.
The reason for documents check was presence of citizen Gribauskayte together with three citizens of Finland who stayed at the hotel, and citizens E.Novikova and A.Protsenko, both earlier had been repeatedly under administrative detention due to their immoral conduct in public space.
We inform so that preventive measures could be taken.
Head of the 3rd Department (signature) A.I.Kuznetsov.
As directed by the KGB's curator, investigation has been ceased.
June 17, 1982
(signature illegible)
By the way, next year comrade Dalia Grybauskaitė became a member of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union.

I am not sure (and at present, having seen only this unperfect photocopy) the document is real. But as a erson who spent 21 years of life in the country which coat of arms stands in the upper left corner I have to admit that the document looks normal. It uses regular words, normal for documents of the kind, and a normal style of Soviet age typewritten documents. There are doubts regarding the lowest handwritten sentence. But here we have to consider that in 1982 no one in the USSR would dare to think of collapse and disintegration of he country. What is more interesting is that this document could not belong to a Lithuanian archive; it (if real) comes from the archive of the St.-Petersburg State University.

The office of the Lithuanian president immediately called publication of this document 'yet another information provocation'. It surely is; russophobia and anti-Russian rhetorics of ex-comrade Grybauskaitė has gone so far that I wouldn't be surprised if some real papers from KGB archives could be presented to the curious audience.

We will see.
Lithuanian Population, from Wiki.
* Genocide is a traditional definition used by current Baltic states authorities for descritpion of their sufferings during their being within the USSR. In fact, as for Lithuania, before June 22, 1941 10,186 people were sent into exile, and 5,663 were arrested (of which some were sentenced to death). During the final post-war deportation in 1949, there were about 33,500 people exiled. Here I have to add, thousand of civilians were killed by local nationalistic partisans (Forest Brothers); only in June 24 to 28, 1941, they killed about 3800 people suspected in cooperation with the Soviet power. The figure kept rising till the time of the practical defeat of the 'Brothers' in mid-1950-s and reached 25,000 people. On the other hand, free and independent Lithuania has been losing population by hundreds thousands without any Stalin or Putin: in 1991 the Lithuanian populaiton was 3,7 million, in 2012 it was 3,0 million, now in 2015 it is approaching 2,9 mil.

** Militia is a traditional name of the Soviet police, coming from the early Soviet (and even pre-Soviet) days, when the civilian order was kept by true workers' militia organized instead of mass-hated czarist police.
