it is what KGB stands for
adam
Committee for State Security (KGB)
Explanation:

In English, "Komitet gosudarstvennoy bezonpasnosti" is called "Committee for State Security", or KGB for short. I simply entered in the search browser bar the words "KGB" and "committee", and this gave me a large number of results dealing with this well-known organization. If more information in Engish about KGB is needed, you can visit any KGB-devoted site, for instance http://www.fas.org/irp/world/russia/kgb/

Hope that this helps you,

Best regards,

artyan
