 Conciliatory Disinformation
In late 1988, when the head of the KGB's First Chief Directorate, Vladimir Kryuchkov, became KGB chairman, the Soviets began to try to construct a new, benign image for the KGB.

Suslov, head of the Second European Department of the Soviet Foreign Ministry, told a group of former ministers of both industrial and developing countries that the Soviet Union is firmly opposed to terrorism and to those who support terrorism, according to participants.

In a chilling speech to the Congress of People's Deputies on 22 December, KGB Chairman Vladimir Kryuchkov provided the latest rationale for a crackdown: to prevent Western businesses and governments from penetrating, subverting and imposing capitalism on the Soviet Union.
Notwithstanding subsequent Soviet (and American) statements attempting to minimize the Kryuchkov speech, it should be interpreted as a strong warning to the West's investors and creditors (both governmental and private) of the prospective climate for business in the USSR.
Kryuchkov noted that the Secretary had said at NATO, "In the short term the question for the Soviet leadership now is not whether reforms will succeed, but how to prevent anarchy and chaos."
