Re: Sending a team of specialists of the Ministry of Defense [of the USSR] to the Republic of Cuba

In keeping with Resolution P231/48 of the CC CPSU, of January 6, 1981, a Soviet military delegation, led by Comrade N.V. Ogarkov, Chief of the General Staff, First Deputy Minister of Defense of the USSR, will visit the Republic of Cuba.

In view of this, the Ministry of Defense hereby requests [that the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union] allow this 10-day visit by the said delegation made up of Marshal A.N. Yefimov (First Deputy Commander and member of the Military Council of the Air Force, member of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR), Admiral G.M. Yegorov (Chief of the General Staff, Deputy Commander, member of the Military Council of the Navy, candidate member of
the CC CPSU), Colonel General N.A. Zotov (head of the 10th Chief Directorate of the General Staff), Lieutenant General I.N. Zaitsev (first deputy head, Organizations Department, Chief Organizations and Mobilization Directorate of the General Staff), Lieutenant General Ye.V. Kalashnikov (head of Department 5, Chief Operations Directorate of the General Staff) , Lieutenant General N.A. Frolov (Special Operations under the aegis of the head of the General Staff, First Deputy Minister of Defense), Major General G.A. Burutin (deputy head of Department 2, Chief Operations Directorate of the General Staff), Major General V.M. Grigoryev (head of Department 10, Chief Directorate of the General Staff), Major General P.I. Konakov (deputy head of the Chief Engineers Directorate, General Staff), Colonel Yu. A. Markelov (officer for special assignments under the command of the Chief of the General Staff, Deputy Minister of Defense).

The said delegation is scheduled to board a flight [to Cuba] on February 6. This business trip will be financed by the Ministry of Defense [of the USSR].

We believe it expedient to grant the request of the Ministry of Defense and allow Comrades A.N. Yefimov, G.M. Yegorov, N.A. Zotov, I.N Zaitsev, Ye.V. Kalashnikov, N.A. Frolov, G.A. Buturin, and Yu.A. Markelov [to make this visit to Cuba], considering their possession of top-secret information.
