Explore the World of After the Revolution

• The Venona Project:
More than three thousands telegraphic cables between Soviet institutions in Moscow and their subordinate stations around the world were deciphered by the U.S. National Security Agency in a project entitled Venona. The earliest cables dated from 1941 and the latest to 1950.  Most were from the period 1943 to 1945.  The project started in 1943, decoded its first cable in 1946, and continued until NSA shut down the project in 1980 when it judged the remaining cables vulnerable to decryption, almost all from the early 1940s, were too old to be of any current intelligence interest.  

This index and concordance indexes twenty-one volumes of KGB archival material: nine notebooks written by Alexander Vassiliev and twelve compilations of the Soviet international telegraphic cables deciphered by the U.S. National Security Agency’s Venona project.
