Top Secret/ Special Folder/March 21, 1989/0544/OP…/Attention: CC CPSU/ Re: Requests by the leadership of the Communist Parties of Chile, Ecuador, and the Socialist Party of Chile

The leadership of the Communist Party of Chile (CPC), that of Ecuador (CPE), and the Socialist Party of Chile (SPC) have requested that CC CPSU accommodate in the USSR, in 1989, eight CPC, one CPE, two SPC, and eight CPC representatives as Party liaison agents.

The above requests, on the part of the CPC, CPE, and SPE leadership, are explained by the stepping up of the [hostile] clandestine agencies’ activities, as well as by the acute need in specially trained Party cadre.

We believe it possible to grant the requests of the leadership of the Communist Party of Ecuador and the Socialist Party of Chile, also, partially, that of the Socialist Party of Chile, by accommodating in the USSR — and providing special training — for eight Party liaison men. The accommodations for the said eight comrades could be entrusted to the International Department and the Department of Administrative Affairs, CC CPSU, while their training, supply of documents [ID papers] and special equipment could be entrusted to the Committee for State Security of the USSR.

The expenses involved in the travel of the CPC, CPE, and SPE representatives from the country of residence to Moscow and back, to the place of destination, including the cost of foreign airline tickets, as well as those involved in their stay in the USSR, including special equipment, in conjunction with the request of the leadership of the above-mentioned parties, should be charged to the [Soviet] Party budget.

This matter has been coordinated with the Department of Administrative Affairs, CC CPSU, and the Committee for State Security of the USSR (Comrade A.V. Shebarshin)

Draft CC CPSU resolution is enclosed herewith.

(Signed) K. Brutents, Deputy Head, International Department, CC CPSU March 21, 1981/#18-C-384
