The Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation (Russian Foreign Intelligence Service) is an integral part of the security forces and is designed to protect the security of individuals, society and the state from external threats. Foreign political intelligence originated in the bowels of the Special Department of the All-Russian Extraordinary Commission (VChK) and took shape as a special unit by the summer of 1920. December 20, 1920 F.E. Dzerzhinsky signed an order to establish the Foreign Department of the Cheka. This date is considered to be the date of birth of foreign intelligence. She was removed from the Special Division of the Cheka and became an independent unit. Currently, the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service carries out intelligence activities in order to provide the President of the Russian Federation, the Federal Assembly and the Government with the intelligence information they need to make decisions in the political, economic, military-strategic, scientific, technical and environmental fields, to ensure conditions conducive to the successful implementation of the policy Russian Federation in the field of security, promoting economic development, scientific and technological progress of the country and military-technical security of the Russian Federation.
