Everyone out of the building.

Right now! That's an order!

Hurry up, comrades;

there's nothing to see here.

Comrade colonel, we have the convicted

prisoner, Oleg Penkovsky.

Here is his sentence.

- Read it before...

- That won't be necessary.

Ivanov, you won't bury me.

Good God, save me.

- Have mercy on me, a sinner.

- Into the furnace.

No! You can't! No! Ivanov, no!

God, oh God, no!

May 17, time:
23:17. Interrogation of

Colonel Ryszard Kuklinski

continued after a technical break,

session 11.

Interrogated by Zygmunt Nowak.

When you began collaborating,

the Penkovsky affair

was still fresh.

I often thought of how

Oleg Penkovsky ended up.

He was convicted by

a court martial

in Moscow of spying for the USA

and executed by firing squad

in May 1963 I think it was.

Every spy, ours or theirs,

sooner or later

is exposed and ends up

like Penkovsky.

- You knew you'd be caught too.

- Correct, I did.

We stopped at your planning

the "Shield 68" maneuvers.

In the fall of '68,

Russia wanted

to deflect the world's attention

from its clashes with China

along the Amur river.

So they decided to come up

with something even more spectacular

Large-scale maneuvers

by Warsaw Pact forces

in the German

Democratic Republic;

I worked on them day and night...

Our brilliant comrade is here.

You're another Kutuzov,

comrade major.

Not just Kutuzov. You're Kutuzov

and Suvorov rolled into one!

You just forgot to give

us the names

of all the other geniuses

in the planning staff

who collaborated with you

on this project.

All their names, please...

There's nothing to give, no names.

I prepared the entire plan myself.

You did the work yourself?

The work of a dozen people?

Yes, comrade general, myself.

Well done!

But where'd you get the data

for the strategic assumptions?

- From staff officers in Berlin.

- And all the rest,

including details for tactical units,

you did that alone?

Yes, comrade.

Well done!

We'll send a congratulatory letter

to your Minister of Defense.

You're free to go,

comrade major.

Don't get up.

Now we can talk.

Maneuvers are cancelled, you know?

- What? Why?

- Because of you.

I don't understand.

You reconstructed the real plans

the Soviets have for war with NATO.

- Original ones?

- The didn't even have time

to send them to all their units,

and you presented identical ones

as a training exercise!

They're planning an offensive strike

against NATO?

They say Kulikov himself personally

worked on it for four years.

A spoiling attack on Germany

isn't exactly in accordance

with socialist military doctrine.

And you did it in three months.

Is something wrong?

So, to repulse the attack

the Americans will use weapons

of mass destruction:

- atomic and hydrogen bombs.

- And?

They'll launch 300 warheads at us,

at the first and second attacks.

They'll destroy every Polish city

and turn Poland into one

huge fucking Hiroshima.

Not against us, but as they'll

have to stop the Soviets...

- Who knows about this?

- Everyone who should.

- Everyone?

- Do you want Comrade Wieslaw

himself to talk to the Americans

over the heads of the Soviets?

Not Comrade Wieslaw...

I could... assign you to Washington

as an attache.

We're just speculating here;

there won't be any war.

We have to trust in merciful God.

Citizen major!

- Don't forget this...

- Thank you, good night.

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Have you been crying?

- How was it in Moscow?

A success... I met Kulikov.

- He's back?

- From where?


Yes. In Prague it's

all over for them.

- "Spring's" gone.
