The State Security Agency of The Union of Yuktobanian Republics or more commonly known as AGB (Agentstvo Gosudarstvennoy Bezopasnosti) is the main Security and intelligence Agency of the Union of Yuktobanian Republics. It main responsibilities are counter-intelligence, information and intel gathering on foreign governments or individuals, providing threat assesment toward national security, and conducting tactical and covert operations. AGB main headquarters are located in Turgunevskaya Sqare, Cinigrad. just a mile northeast from the Kremlin.
Premier Bukitev's Reform
The State Security Agency is the superseding agency of People's Emergency Commission or Varka (aVariinyi nARodnaya KomissiiA). In 1949, the newly appointed Premier and the General Secretary of the central committee of the communist party of Yuktobania Fyodor Bukitev saw that there was clear overlap in the roles and functions of
various Yuktobania security bodies during the era of Prime Minister Alexei Leukrov, this overlap caused a great deal of rivalry between those bodies. Responding to this issue, he addressed the Central Committee of Yuktobanian Communist Party as a policymaking body to reform these agencies and created an integrated agency to handle the matters of national security against foreign and domestic threats. Then the AGB was born,in order to prevent similar overlap liaison and communication departments were formed within the AGB to connect the agency with other agencies and bodies such as the Ministry of Internal Affairs, ministry of defense and especially the military and VSRU (Armed Forces Intelligence Directorate).
Roles in Clavisan War (1950-1953)
In 1950, Yuktobania backed Socialist Republic of Clavis were at war with the Osea backed Democratic Republic of Clavis.The Clavis war was also known as the first "indirect" showdown between the 2 superpowers. Osea mandated by the International United Nations (Predecessor of Neo United Nations) under the Security Council's resolution Number 82 and 83, sent more than 300.000 troops to assist the military of West Clavis. Yuktobania, one of the closest allies of East Clavis reacted by sending more than 15.000 troops. 2000 of them were AGB Agents, and special operatives. AGB provided intel support to the Clavisan People's Army (CPA)and involved in series of sabotage operations including Operation "Veles" which led to the sinking of OFS New Anea, one of 2 Osean aircraft carriers (OFS Sagrado was the second aircraft carrier) served in Clavisan War in 1951.
AGB Operations in Osea
During the cold war, AGB has developed network of sleeper agents in Osean Federation, and the western
states. These sleeper agents were placed by the AGB (sometimes for a very long time) in Osea to collect important intels from within the border. Though the sleeper agents work for the agency but they never directly communicate with the agency all communications or information from the agency are delivered toward the agents through their handlers and liaison officers. According to 1970 Osea's intel records among billion Oseans, there were more than 600 individuals suspected as sleeper agents. But, until now the true numbers of AGB sleeper agents in Osea remain a mystery.
several well-known individuals suspected to be Yuktobanian Sleeper Agents
- Thomas William Harling (Grandfather of Osean 48th President Vincent Harlling): suspected due to his close relationswith the communist party of Yuktobania. At the same time he headed the largest leftist party in Cold War Osea or commonly known as ORSP (Osean Revolutionary Socialist Party). Thomas W Harling went through several trials for espionage and threatening national security. But in the end, his connection with the AGB was never proven and the federal court dismissed all charges against him.
- Aleksandr Molotov: the supposed-name of an operative (of one of the AGB's predecessors) that infiltrated Osea's nuclear program in the 1940s, allowing the Yuktobanians to develop their own bomb shortly after Osea and escalating the tensions of the Cold War; this also changed its meaning from the threat of a World War to the threat of a nuclear apocalypse. Perhaps ironically, if the rumors are to be believed, he helped to diffuse the conflict over the Cresence Islands Missile Crisis, an incident in which Yuktobanian troops landed on the Belkan-controlled Cresence Islands and placed IRBMs there, well within range of the Osean capital of Oured and bringing the world closer to Nuclear War than ever before or since. His real identity, and if he's still alive or not, remains a mystery. And that the name itself is probably a pseudonym.
