Reference: CIA Releases Declassified Documents on the Cold War Soviet Navy

From the Central Intelligence Agency:

The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), in partnership with the National Museum of the U.S. Navy and the Naval Historical Foundation, held a public symposium today to discuss the trove of material included in CIA’s recent release of previously classified documents about the Soviet Navy during the Cold War.

The event, “Red Navy Revealed: Soviet Navy–Intelligence and Analysis during the Cold War,” held at the National Museum of the U.S. Navy in Washington, D.C., provided new insight into CIA’s analysis of the evolving Soviet Navy and its military posture during the Cold War.

The release encompasses 82 documents spanning some 2,000 pages and covering three decades from the 1960s to the 1980s. The documents range from translations of clandestinely-obtained articles from the Soviet military journal, Military Thought, to high-level National Intelligence Estimates.
