Languages of publication
Today Soviet Union Secret Services inherits the leading role and the whole government system from their forerunners of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. Just like the contemporary Russia refers to the Russia-before the revolution history, the present secret services had adapted to its legacy the memory of tsarist Ochrana. At the time of political transformation, the secret services had saved the KGB-staff and operational continuity, in the opposite to most of the previous Russian organizational authorities. Despite the names, its nature was changed only a little bit. They got a new way of functioning. They became one of the most important parts of the new authority scheme. The Russian secret services are nowadays not only one of the authority tools (as the tsarist Ochrana or KGB before), but they are also a real and important creator of the country’s policy. The secret services public officials (before and current), have definitely become more important by being the new leading class of contemporary Russia. The siłowniki background creates the close and clannish group of people from whom the human resources of the financial and country management are recruited.
