Approved For Release 2001/07/26 : CIA-RDP75-00149R000600250018-3 22 November 1965 bb 28 USSR INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS CPYRGHT The "'Penkovski,y Papers" were serialized in the Washington POST, the Chicago DAILY NEWS, Los Angeles TIES, and certain other newspapers here and abroad before publi- cation in book form, The widest possible publicity was arranged for the book. The publishers are trying to convince the readers that Penkovskiy wrote these. notes before his arrest, which were then smuggled to America. Only an absolute idiot could believe that a rabid spy, who feared that he was suspected by Soviet security organs, would keep detailed diaries--396 large-sized pages--and append them with extensive comments on Soviet policy, which coincided with the aims of anti-Soviet propaganda at the end of 1965. It must be said that even a glance at the "papers" leaves no room for doubt that they were concocted by the U.S. and British intelligence agencies whose agent Penkovskiy had been. This has been bluntly told U.S. and British officials. Their attention. has been drawn to the responsibility that the U.S. and British authorities bear for this provocative undertaking. Not a single serious commentator here or in London believes in the authenticity of these "papers." Even TIME magazine, which takes up any anti-Soviet lie, is skeptical over this concoction, Commentators hold various views as to the author ship of these "ffimemories." Some believe that the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency is the real author. Others think that CIA only furnished the authors with documents and background information. Max Frankel of the New York TIMES believes that some of Penkovskiyy's espionage reports were used in the book with the generous addition of documents which Western agents would like to have published at present. According to London correspondents of U.S. papers, the view is widespread in Britain that the "Penkovskiy Papers" are the joint product of the American and British intelli-~ gence services. CIA, to be sure, denies authorship although CIA spokesmen have told newsmen that the contents of the "papers" were known to U.S. intelligence before they were published. Why was such extensive publication and circulation of this forgery needed? The American press noted that the book's purpose was to fan up anticommunst; hysteria, spoil already tense international relations, and supply false documents to the American brass, which now demands a harsher and more aggressive foreign policy course. PRAVDA on Oreville Wyrnne Moscow in English to the United Kingdom 1900 GMT 20 November 1965--L CPYRGHbridged version of PRAVDA article on Greville Wynne) (Text) A certain Englishman's name has been cropping up in the press. We first heard of Greville Wynne in connection with traitor Penkovskiy, a British and American intelligence agent, during his trial in the USSR. The military collegium of the Soviet Supreme Court sentenced Wynne as a go-between for complicity in espionage. Wynne's miserable appearance in court aroused a feeling of disgust and contempt 's the prosecution step by step exposed the filthy activities of this so-called businessman from a respectable family. He passed on intelligence information, stole money, guided his ward though London and Paris nightclubs, introduced shady ladies to him, and enjoyed their services himself until his partner complained to their,ma dterse "Rid me of this skirt chaser."

He readily told how the British ambassador had advised him to collect material from the traitor and pass it on to the intelligence service. Upon his arrest, he at his own initiative offered to spy for the Soviet "Union. Wynne cried at the trial. He accused British Intelligence of deceiving him, enmeshing him in a rotten dirty business. , and giving him the squeeze. The prosecutor asked him: "Do you d-nounce your activi.t:us`Qt Wynne .replied., "Yes, most decidedly." "Are you regretful ?c the court asked. He responded that. he had never wanted to take part in any of the diL^t:y business. Of course, he would never do it again. He swore that h1'1 eyes had been opened wide. When he returned, British intelligence paid him for damages ?ained and a series of slan6erous newspaper articles. It was in those articles that this miserable scribbler 'posed as a hero and patriot. Wynne >_s now publicizing the so-called Penkovskiy Papers In the United St?.tns 111d Britain. This is the latest a:ti-Soviet hash to be dealt out by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency and obviou'ly by its, British underlings. The falsehood is. not worth examining. It has been so crudely fabricated that no self-respecting British paper could help but expose it!s authors at first sight. The DAIIaIMAIL suggested that the book was probably faked by CIA. It added: "There is too much indirect evidence that the book is false." The GUARDYAN reminded readers that since there is no Russian version of the Penlovskiy papers, they. could only have been composed by CIA. The EVENING STANDARD: commented that CIA had done the West a poor service, Greville Wynne does not even realize the stupid position in which he has placed his masters. How much used to be publicized about the caution and discretion of British intelligence! The (ward indistinct) must be the effect of its close contacts with CIA. Things must be in sad shape for anyone to employ the services of such a miserable scribbler as Greville Wynne.
