Kristina Burinskaitė

Information is a thing of great value to all intelligence services in their activity and predicting future process. The question is how will you manage to use it properly. KGB paid a huge attention to analyzing process in Lithuanian and their reasons to prevent any trouble for soviet regime (society moods, anti-Soviet actions and so on). However, it did not manage to prevent and stop most active anti-Soviet movements and action and finally collapse of soviet regime. The question is how and why KGB miscalculated their abilities in controlling perestroika processes Lithuania. The main task of presentation is to analyses analytic abilities and efficiency of other KGB methods in analyzing process in Lithuanian especially in perestroika time.
