The Komityet Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosty (Russian Cyrillic Комитет государственной безопасности), literally the Committee for State Security, was the chief espionage agency of the Soviet Union. The KGB was responsible for all espionage and counter-espionage activities, essentially acting as a combined unit equal to the CIA and FBI in the United States, or a combination of MI5 and MI6 in the United Kingdom.
