The Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation (Russia’s SVR) forms part of the Russian security forces and serves to protect the safety of individuals, the society and the state against external threats.

The foreign political intelligence service originated in the Special Division of the Russian Extraordinary Commission (VChK) to be officially established as a dedicated branch by summer 1920. 20 December 1920, when Felix Dzerzhinsky signed an order on the creation of the Foreign Division (INO) in the VChK, is commonly believed to be the date of the foundation of the foreign intelligence service in Russia. It was split from the Special Division of the VChK to become an independent branch.

Today, Russia’s SVR carries out intelligence activities in order to provide the President, the Federal Assembly and the Government of the Russian Federation with intelligence information for making proper political, economic and strategic military decisions, decisions in research-and-technology and environment protection areas, as well as to create the conditions facilitating the successful implementation of Russia’s policy to protect security, promote economic development, scientific and technological progress, and material and technical support of the security of the Russian Federation.
