Summary/Abstract: After the Second World War in the countries of Central and Eastern Europe, which came under the influence of the USSR, the creation of special services was on the Soviet model (with some national features) and with the help of advisers from Moscow. In different years, the security agencies of these countries had NKVD-MGB-KGB offices of the USSR, which later also performed the function of coordinating the activities of special services in the Warsaw Pact countries (hereinafter - ATS). // The processes that took place in the Soviet Union in the late 1980s directly affected the states of the so-called socialist commonwealth. By 1991, anti-communist opposition had come to power in virtually all of these states, and the new governments set out to form a multiparty system and a democratic society, accompanied by the transformation of the special services.
