FOIAb3b 0 CPYRGHT a On February 4, 1964, Yuri Nossenko (high-ranking Soviet secret police official attending the Geneva Disarmament Conference as an "adviser" to the Soviet delegation) disappeared. Six days later, it was revealed that he had defected and had been granted asylum in the United States." He is virtually in the custody of the Central Intelligence Agency and of the State Department; but members of Congress are concerned about his personal safety, because he is said to have given information about Soviet espionage agents inside the Central Intelligence Agency and the State Department. 12' Nossenko revealed that some employees of United States, French, and British diplomatic and in- telligence agencies are members of five Soviet spy rings operating throughout the Western Hemi- sphere, and that certain American businessmen, newspapermen, scientists, and others are also undercover communist spies. Nossenko has named names and given details. One of the five com- munist spy rings allegedly operates in a very sensitive agency of the United States government.('' Investigating committees of Congress have not yet been permitted to question Nossenko; and the Johnson administration apparently has done nothing about the information offered. The Soviets fear that Yuri Nossenko may give the West documents (such as cables from Mos- cow to Soviet delegates at the disarmament conference in Geneva) proving that Soviet disarma- ment proposals are designed merely to deceive gullible liberals and to provide propaganda for the Soviets."' To date, the most important result of the Nossenko Case is that it helped uncover an affair which the Eisenhower, Kennedy, and Johnson administrations had concealed from Congress and the public for almost four years - an affair centering around a man who, for his own protection, uses the pseudonymn "Lieutenant-Colonel Michael Goleniewski." In September, 1958, Jacob, D. Beam (U. S. Ambassador to communist Poland) began what State Department officials called one of our more serious dialogues with a red Chinese delegation."
