IV
WHEN STALIN COUNTERFEITED
DOLLARS

exploded in the street, fifty people injured, three killed, and 341,000 roubles-that is £34,000-were added to the party's funds. It is not surprising that in another crisis in which he felt the need of ready cash, Stalin should conceive the all too simple idea of taking it out of the United States Treasury.
The need, however, was extreme. The fund of foreign exchange in the Soviet Treasury was woefully inadequate for the first-line industrial departments. The foreign divisions of the Ogpu and the Soviet Military Intelligence were in a critical budgetary condition at a time when they, too, were expanding their services. The quest for "valuta "-gold or its equivalents-was a main preoccupation of the Soviet government. A special Valuta Bureau was organized by the Ogpu, and every conceivable method, from trickery to terror, employed to pump foreign currency and other treasures out of the population. It reached its climax in the so-called Dollar Inquisition, the systematic extortion from Soviet citizens of relief remittances sent to them by relatives in America. Many of the victims were imprisoned and tortured by the Ogpu until ransom money arrived from abroad.
All this became known to a fairly wide public, but Stalin kept his still more primitive grab for easy money a pretty deep secret. To this day, the source of those forged $100 notes remains an unsolved mystery even for American and European secret services. Suspicions were indeed entertained, and even voiced, that there was a counterfeiting ring in Soviet Russia. But no one in authority dared to suggest that the Soviet government was the criminal.
The facts are that Stalin himself established and directed this counterfeiting ring. That its presses were in Moscow in the deepest recesses of the Ogpu, and
