Re: Request by the leadership of the Communist Party of Brazil and the Communist Party of Uruguay

Comrade L.C. Preste, General Secretary, CC CPB, and Comrade R. Arismendi, First Secretary, CC CPU, have requested (OP #3011, 11.15.78 and OP #1805, 07.13.78, attached herewith) that CC CPSU provides a special course of training in clandestine party activities for one comrade from each of the said parties.

The requests of Comrades Preste and Arismendi are caused by the need to enhance the underground CPB and CPU leadership, also their contacts with foreign centers, by specially trained cadre.

We would consider it possible to grant the request of the CPB and CPU leadership.

This matter has been coordinated with the KGB of the USSR (e.g., Comrade Tsvigun).

Draft resolution of the CC CPSU is attached herewith.

(Signed) K. Brutents, Deputy Head, International Department, CC CPSU November [date illegible] 1978/#25-C-8875 [Handwritten] “Translated from the Portuguese”/ Top Secret. 3011 [Attention:] CC CPSU Dear Comrades,

On behalf of the CC of the Communist Party of Brazil, I request your help in organizing a special short-term (three to five days) course of training [in clandestine party activities] for Comrade Marcelo Santos who is a member of the Executive Committee of the CC CPB., because we have established a command center in this country.

Fraternally yours,

Luis Carlos Preste

General Secretary, CC CPB
