To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request under the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Files relating to the KGB, which is the abbreviation for Komitet gosudarstvennoy bezopasnosti, or the original Russian names, КГБ and Комите́т госуда́рственной безопа́сности.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that fees cannot be waived, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

A fix is required to perfect the request.

From: Michael Best

I had hoped to receive the thousands of pages of material that you describe that would be responsive to a search for the KGB, release them to public and let everyone determine their own level of interest in specific documents upon reviewing them. I am very sorry to hear that the search is too broad for the Agency to undertake or provide a fee estimate for.
