Aleksander Cherpanov

Aleksander Cherpanov worked for the KGB department dealing with  internal security and counter-intelligence.

In November 1963 he sent the US embassy in Moscow a packet of highly classified papers with information dealing with surveillance and entrapment of diplomats along with his offer to work for CIA.

The documents were returned by Americans to the Soviets, because they were considered KGB provocation.

Cherpanov escaped from Moscow  but was arrested by the border guards on December 17, 1963.
