Rem Krassilnikov

Major General Rem Krassilnikov, (1927 - 2003) was a counter-intelligence officer of the Soviet Union's State Security Committee (KGB).

His first name was taken from the Russian phrase Revolutsia mirovaya (''Революция мировая" -"World Revolution"). His wife's name was Ninel (Lenin spelled backwards).

During the 1980s, he was Chief of the First (American) Department within the KGB's Second Chief Directorate, which placed him in charge of investigating and disrupting the operations of the American Central Intelligence Agency in the Soviet Union's capital of Moscow. Prior to that he headed up the Second Department of the SCD, which targeted the intelligence operations of the United Kingdom.
