Book Commentary: KGB: The Inside Story

Soviet ambassador Dobrynin is described as having had “secret discussions" with Henry Kissinger which are called a "back channel" between Moscow and Washington , and having “paved the way for détente". This raises again the statement by Goleniewski several years after his defection that Kissinger was working for the KGB, and the April 1977 cable in the CKTRIGON case which allegedly is a report by Dobrynin of a discussion of START talks with Kissinger.

There is an account of the recruitment of the Norwegian secretary in Moscow, Gunvor Haavik, who was the KGB asset about whom Golitsyn's usually vague information led to CIA's (

Angleton/Golitsyn) falsely accusing Norwegian military intelligence chief's secretary Ingeborg Lygren.
