STALIN'S HAND IN SPAIN

The major question of organizing the arms shipments to Spain was solved by the Lubianka conference with a decision to push the task simultaneously from Russia and from abroad. The foreign end was assigned to me.
The domestic phase of the undertaking was handled by Yagoda himself. It presented even greater difficulties than mine, because it was absolutely necessary that no sign should appear of any official government participation in the traffic.
Yagoda called in Captain Oulansky of the Ogpu and commissioned him to organize a "private syndicate" of munition dealers. Captain Oulansky was an exceptionally skilled man in secret service work. He had previously been entrusted by the Ogpu with the delicate task of escorting Anthony Eden and Premier Laval during their visits to the Soviet Union.
" You will find three Spaniards in Odessa who have been cooling their heels there for some time," Yagoda said to Captain Oulansky. "They came to buy arms from us unofficially. Create a neutral private firm for them to deal with."
Since no one in Soviet Russia can buy so much as a revolver from the Government and the Government is the sole manufacturer of arms, the idea of a private firm trading in munitions on Soviet soil would be, to Soviet citizens, preposterous. But the farce was needed for foreign consumption. In plain terms, it was Captain Oulansky's job to organize and operate a ring of arms smugglers, and to do this so cleverly that no trace could be discovered by the spies of foreign governments.
" If you succeed," Yagoda told him, "come back with a hole in your lapel for the Order of the Red Banner."
Captain Oulansky was instructed to trade for cash
