Russian KGB

The Russian KGB, most known for its espionage and fear tactics, was a secret police and intelligence agency in existence during the Soviet Russia era. Created in 1954, the KGB was responsible for gathering information about foreign countries and for quelling any domestic anti-communism sentiment. Although the KGB was decommissioned in 1991, little is known today about the actions of the organization, and many related files are still marked as classified. However, they have been known to use both legal resident and illegal resident spies to infiltrate their targets, and have often been referred to as the world's most effective information-gathering organization. Although they no longer publicly exist, I doubt that such talent would go to waste, and in my opinion, they are probably still conducting espionage on a much more secretive level.
