Soviet operations during the height of the cold war took many forms, from infiltration of our education system to intervention in public policies and government. The Soviets had agents working in pretty much every nook and cranny of the United States engaging in all sorts of operations designed to destabilize the United States in one way or another.
The recent arrest of a Russian spy ring operating in the United States suggest that the Soviet goal of bringing American capitalism to its knees remains the ultimate goal. Though the “spies” weren’t involved in the transfer of military secrets or preparing contingency plans in the event the U.S. and Russia go to war, the fact that they had close relationships to US government officials, lobbyists and corporate leaders indicates that Russian operatives continue to work towards the goals set forth during the cold war.
