Kontrrazvedka: The Story of the Makhnovist Intelligence Service By V. Azarov
2009 | 78 Pages | ISBN: 0973782722 | PDF | 22 MB


The Makhnovist movement was an attempt by peasants in southeastern Ukraine to create an anarchist society in 1917 1921. This unique social experiment embraced a substantial territory with a population of millions but has been little studied by historians. In the years of revolution and civil war, the movement was protected from its numerous enemies by a remarkable military force--the Insurgent Army--and by an intelligence service--the Kontrrazvedka. It is the latter institution which is the subject of this study by Vyacheslav Azarov, a present-day Ukrainian anarchist.
