According to information provided by another KGB defector Jan Sejna, KGB General Mironov’s subcommittee recommended the following long-range deception operations, requiring the accomplishment of several tasks:
.
(1) Penetrate the intelligence services of the West with “moles”; Convince Western intelligence services of the authenticity of fake intelligence offered by “dangles” and thereby gain promotions for “purveyors of a false disarming narrative” by penetration agents who will inevitably become the leading figures in Western intelligence;
.
(2) while taking control of the intelligence game on the ground, promote the idea that “ideology is dead” in the communist bloc;
.
(3) promote the idea of an “ideological” split between Moscow and Beijing so that the West will “play the China card”; that is, blindly rush in and build China into an industrial and technological giant to counter the USSR;
.
(4) promote fake dissident groups and dissident celebrities in the Soviet Union and its satellites;
.
(5) establish controlled opposition movements in bloc countries;
.
(6) prepare to organize, through agents in the dissident movements, anti-communist revolutions throughout bloc
.
(7) promote the idea that a future Soviet leader is, in fact, a “liberal reformer”;
.
(8) break up the Warsaw Pact and collapse the Soviet Union in a “controlled” fashion;
.
(9) groom stealth communists as candidates for high office in America and Western Europe. These would present themselves as “moderates,” but would operate as “penetration” agents dedicated to facilitating critical aspects of the strategy; namely, economic sabotage and reduction or diversion of U.S. military resources.
.
(10) the communist bloc’s military, industrial and diplomatic efforts would meet with success only if the West could be persuaded that communism had “collapsed” in the Soviet sphere. This part of the “long-range strategy” required a reorganization of the KGB into an “outer” shell of personnel, having no knowledge of the strategy or its directing principles, and an highly secretive “inner” KGB responsible for organizing serial deceptions.

MIKHAIL GORBACHEV's speech at the 70th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution (1987):  
.
"... In October 1917, we parted with the old world, rejecting it once and for all. We are moving toward a new world, a world of Communism. We shall never turn off that road."
.
And from his speech to the Soviet Politburo, November 1987:
.
"Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. These are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes. Our purpose is to disarm the Americans and let them fall asleep. We want to accomplish three things: One, we want the Americans to withdraw conventional forces from Europe. Two, we want them to withdraw nuclear forces from Europe. Three, we want the Americans to stop proceeding with Strategic Defense Initiative."
