Keywords:undercover case, KGB, OUN, organizational work, underground activities, Ukrainian nationalists
After the return from camps and special settlements some former members of the underground insurgent movement have begun activities aimed at re-establishing clandestine organizations and attracting new members.
They discussed the prospects for further national liberation struggle, prepared programme and organizational documents, printed and distributed leaflets and anti-Soviet materials among the young people. They closely followed anti-Communist movements in Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia and encouraged Ukrainians to follow their example.
Numerous facts show that the Soviet State security organs, using various methods and techniques, made great efforts to neutralize clandestine organizations and to bring their members to justice.
