Frclnktul't 11-1 Assassin Stashin.,~ky: Poison gun A Killer's Confession One of the cold war's most fascinating murder mysteries was solved last week -or was it? These were the facts: On the night of Oct. 15. 1959, the body of a 50-year-old Ukrainian anti-Commmu- nist named Stefan Banclera was discov- ered in his Munich home, slumped across the stairs, dead. It looked like a heart attack, but an autopsy showed Bandera had been poisoned with cyanide. Well aware that Banclera was the chief of a Ukrainian "Insurgent Army" that hoped, one clay, to invade Russia, . his German friends assumed his assassi- nation had been ordered in Moscow. But until last week no one could be sure. Then the West Germans announced that a former Russian citizen had surrendered to the police. The killer's name-or so he said-was Bogdan N. Stashinskv. His employer: The Kremlin. Himself a Ukrainian, Stashinskv had murdered his victim with a s ecia v ui ii t_11tm that._ed`-a s ray of vaporized cyanide at such hig pressure that it penetrate t-Ite'sl. ~x~ kill "- Jug instantly and leasing Rio mark on the corp,s.y As a reward, Stashinskv Claimed Eo`have been decorated with the Order of the Red Banner by the boss of Rus- sia's secret-police. Why did Stashinsky surrender? His own story is that his wife per- suaded him to. Mrs. Stashinskv, an East German girl, disliked living in Moscow. When she became pregii nt, the'secret police allowed her to go home to East Berlin to have her baby. The baby died last Aug. 8 and, in despair, the Stashin- skys fled West just befcme the border was closed on Aug. 13. But Stashinskv's confession to murder meant possible life imprisonment. So why had he given himself up? The only ex- planation police could or was that a worse fate awaited him in the East.

The Security approach to the problem is as follows. 1. ARTIC7107. techniques involving the use of any type drugs should only be undertaken after it has been determined that the action is necessary in the National interest and its. use outweighs the inherent dangers involved. 2. The consideration of the use of JRTICfo .-tedhniques' should first be considered from the standpoint of the locale of the operation, the political ell-mate of the geographical area involved, the dar.~-err of zblicit?r, the ava.iln.bility of facilities for carrying out the operation, arx: whether reasonable security can be expected in the course of the operation. 3. Having satisfied the above elements, Security feels that the technique to be used and the drug to be err loved is a decision arrived at based on the 'reculier circd Vstanles of each case considering the health of the individual,' the availability of the in Tividutal to the opposition after the operation, the personal characteristics of the individual, and the nature 'of the inforta on to be obtained. The selec- tion of the draw to be used has always been at the determaina- tion of the Medical Division. 4. The above considerations havin;7 been , `ecurity then insists upon a highly organized and carefully controlled operation to carry out the ;RTICH02;r.'. Mission with authority granted to the ARTIC?i0r ~. Team for (a) the I.eddical Officer to stop the operation if it appears warranted from a medical standpoint and (b) Security to stop the operation if it appears there are uncontrollable security developments. 5. Security stronily feels that the ne decisions should be arrived at trrmufth full coordiaa tie of the interested parties brie:^in in medical, security, and ;area, division con- siderations, "~nd not at any tine throurih the inilateral decisions of any one sin?le component without relationship to It he others. Security has always maintained that it fallacious to believe that one drug; serves all purposoe Fr can be used 25X1 Approved For Release 2004/01/29 : CIA-RDP83-0 042R000800407910=3--- ] Approved For Release 2004/01/29 : CIA-RDP83-01042ROW800010010-3 as a stock Item. Further, ecurity insists that the anplica- tion of drugs in kRTIC"C '" techniques alw*a be throurh a medical officer present-at all times durirj7 the proceedin-s. Security is interested in any now drug that is develo ed and feels that a series of dru~-s should to available for use as the circumstances determine, Lastly, Security rer^ards the use of drugs which may possibly affect the health of an individual as an activity which can have the most serious unfavorable repercussions If the operation is ill, planned or compromised, and recognizes at the same timo that the information deri-red from the use of drugs is larpely Iimited. The Security Office would welcome any conference where this problem could be further discussed, Approved For Release 2004/01/29-:CIA-RDP83-01042R000800010010-3 25X1 Approved For Release 2004/01/29 : CIA-RDP83-01042R000800010010-3 Approved For Release 2004/01/29 : CIA-RDP83-01042R000800010010-3 A i Approved For ReIse 2004/01/29 : CIA-RD1583-01042R0e800010010-3 ILLEGIB ILLEGIB been stated many times previously in that under ARTICHOKE documents they were charged with the responsibility of carrying out in operational use unconventi interrogations involving drugs aAd_ chemicals. Security fur er has held. that any use of # drugs or chemicals with full cooperation, knowledge of the drug` by. medical officers Security office always ILLEGIB ARTICHOKE techniques;e used. The ILLEGIB considered that TSS had a4 T-4-6-serve responsibility i this connection not only for the discovery of new material for use in ARRTICHO. but for new techniques and new ideas in this connection. The Security Office also a it was the responsibility of OSI to very-eerafly.screen all z . intelligence material., scientific data in foreign countries, etc., ,for nef techniques, new. drugs, or aqaaaw of drugs or chemicalnection with int+ ILLEGIB . ILLEGIB For the record it should be noted that the term new drugs or chemicals IL, never been defined,' nor has there been any but "informal reporting in conriec' with research on new drugs or chemicals or new techniques.., Further the Secuir: ILLEGIB Office has never engaged in experimental work along these lines except in a general sense in the field of hypnosis, s,,some general study in the. area o new drugs' and chemicals for information purposes only. In the actual use of drugs or chemicals for interrogation purposes certa' elements have always been considered by the Office of Security. Among these the following: 1. The Security Office will undertake ARTICHOKE if the national ini overweighs the inherent dangers involved, the chance of unfavorable publi or that the end results cannot be acheived by other more standard means.

The Security Office, in carrying out ARTICHOKE,. acts only if ILLEGIB a decision to interrogate under drugs is agreed on by all interested, part if Medics on and finally full approval has been gic by Chief, Ops. 3. Every element has been considered before ARTICHOKE is carried oL Every element is.._-very.:carefully weighed-and the-chances of-success are. st -..carefully. The locale of the operation is studied; the political enviror of the area is considered. The chances of publicity, the available facil for the operation, the general security of the operation in every aspect, The question of whether or not the individual will have knowledge of the ARTICHOKE operation after it has been completed and the ultimate disposit of the individual. Ail-are-weighed ,before AR ECHOKE. is. parried .eut. The Security Office has not determined what drug whall be used, but has accepted the advice of the Medical Division in each case. The problem of exac what information is desired is also studied to determine whether or not a part lar drug is most suitable and again this has been.left to the Medical Divisior 'although the Security Office iii informed of most drugs and chemicals in this a Even hypnosis has not been attempted except icy e3ravpe2tirttn with the Medical Of present and with their guidance and assistance. As stated previously, always physical and mental condition of the Subject has been carefully studied prior the actual use of ARTICHOKE. It is the specific policy of the Security Office that ARTICHOKE will onl3 used under very highly controlled circumstances with every element studied ane i every weakness guarded against and when possible with aLl chances of unforturiat accidents or publicity are eliminated.

The Security Of believes at this time all current info ? tion should be disclosed and all know of new chemicals, new drugs,.new-techniques or ideas should be discussed and. studied.

ARTIC,4OKE Representatives FROM ? Director of Security sUBJEcT: ARTICHOKE; Restatement of Program DAT: 16 July 1953 1. Reference is made to attached 30 memorandum dated 21 November 1952 addressed to the Assistant Director~, OSI; Chief, I'edical Staff; and Chief, OTS, the subject, "Project ARTICHOKE." 2. Reference is also made to the informal conference held Thursday, 9 July 1953 with d the writer presen . 3. At the above mentioned conference held 9 July 1953, Colonel Edwards stated he felt in view of the expanding work being carried out in all fields in the ARTIC ?O CE program ,.ad with the constantly enlarging numbers of contacts and consult- ants and the 'irmainent possibility of ex~ierimental work being undertaken both in the United States and overseas, it would. be well to redefine the specific interests and activities of all. .those working with the Project ARTICHOKE and bring up to date and set out for examination the present and future plans of each group engaged in this work. Colonel Edwards said he felt that in order to prevent duplication of effort and to increase and stimulate interest and activity on behalf of ARTICHOKE,, and particularly to bend every effort to find new methods, new techniques, new chemicals, etc. which would work to the benefit of this Agency, all parties interested should re-examine their. work and understand clearly how each group would work with and support the activities of the others involved in the ARTICHOKE, program. 4. The basic memorandum referred to in Para graph 1 above very clearly sets forth in general toms the responsibilities of the ,,:edi cal Staff, of OTS, OSI and of S) in connection with the ARTICHC a pro7ra7:I.

Colonel Edwards further stated in the above-mentioned conference that there were many places where responsibilities would lie jointly between various participating groups and there would be a great deal of overlapping since it appeared obvious the field was tremendous and the effort now covered so many diverse activities. 6. It is felt that a restatement of the aims of ARTICHOKE is essential at this tiiae. Briefly, these basic aims may be stated as follows: a. To perfect techniques utilizing existing drugs, hypnosis, and other elements for the extraction of- information from individuals whether willing or not. b. To provide field teams for testing, experimenting and re- fining techniques utilizing currently known and recommended, new materials for the extraction of information from in- digenous personnel under field conditions. c. In coordination with TSS and the Medical Staff arrange for research and experimentation within the facilities of those two components for the development-of means for the control of the activities and mental capacities of individ- uals whether willing or not. d. Conduct liaison and initial research in fields and areas not within the immediate canabilities of TSS and the Medical Ste: for the development of ideas and possible means.of exerting control over the activities and mental capacities of individ. uals. e.. Control the operational use of ARTICHOKE techniques and serv as the support element to the operational components in the use of such techniques. Explore means through indoctrination and training of prevent; the enemy from gaining control over the activities and menta capacities of Agency personnel. Serve as the coordinating element among all components for the Agency on those matters concerning the operational use of ARTICHOKE techniques. h. Arrange for the exchange of information concerning ARTICHCI' techniques and research and development among those elements primarily concerned as OSI, TSS, Medical Division, DAP and Security Office.

Conduct authorized liaison with other components of govern- ment in the ARTICHOi field and arrange for liaison responsibility through the Agency component having the most pertinent interest in new projects or activities in other departments having bearing on the overall ARTICHOKE project. 7. It should be recognized that there are many facets of pos- sible.ARTICHOInE interest which have never been adequately explored from the standpoint operational ARTICHOKE use. TSS and the,edical Division will' be expected, from the framework of their capabilities;, to conduct the basic research as to whether or not such elements have any possible application to operational use for ARTICHOKE purposes. The introduction of new ideas and new techniques are the of all components concerned and should be presented by each component with as much background material as is possible. In this capacity the Security Office will maintain contact and liaison with scientific and technical specialists in these fields for the basic development of ideas and the suggestions of new means for. possible use in ARTICHOKE. Such action will be conducted in full coordination with the other interested components to insure that there is no duplication of efforl 25X1 Colonel, GSC Approved For Release 2004/01/29 CIAR13P83-010422000800010010-3 -V -1 A Approved For ReLQp, e,2Q04IQ1/'a9 : CIA-RDP8 c*_JT44 bgp800010010-3 21 November 1952 FCi : Assistant Dir etor, C3I C::ief., edical Staff Chief, I T3 iU{B (T : Project AER C'.:lr!' 1, fleference is made to the staff stud;- dated 29 ':u -ust 1952 from Assistant Director/;A_ to Di)/i, h)/I and D /A. 1 .e staff study is ber concurred in b,,7 the a-)roprin.te officers wherein the responsibility for Project has been allocated as follows: _ a.
