Re: Request by E. Papaioannou, Secretary General, Progressive Party of Working People of Cyprus

  1. Papaioannou, Secretary General of the Progressive Party of Working People of Cyprus (AKEL) has requested that CC CPSU receive in 1980 representatives of the party Lucas Andreas and Timopheus Ciriacos for one month of special training in radio operating techniques, detection of eavesdropping devices (sh/t-ma [coded telegram] from Nicosia, spec. #269, of March 29, 1980).

We believe it possible to grand Comrade E. Papaioannou’s request. The International Department and the Department of Administrative Affairs of the CC CPSU could be tasked with the accommodation of, and services to, the Cypriot comrades, and the Committee for State Security of the USSR — with their training.

This matter has been coordinated with the Committee for State Security of the USSR (Comrade Tsinev).

Enclosed herewith is a draft Resolution of the CC CPSU.
