Note on the artistic intelligentsia 1984
"Report by Ivan Stoyanov Yankulov, Head of Division 01, Section 06 – State Security", Sofia, 30 January 1984, to the Minister of the Interior.The officer reports about the strengthening of "negative tendencies" to be observed lately among the intelligentsia. These are said to be due the stepped-up afforts of the "enemy" as well as the activities of "hostile elements" inside the country. The report also detailed the problems of the state security's work among the artistic intelligentsia because of their distrust, of their closed way of life or of their high professional or social status. Therefore, it is suggested, the development and monitoring of this category of persons should be carried out by technical means. The document, thus, indicates growing resentment of the regime by the intelligentsia and shows the ways, how the statet security evaluated the effectiveness of its own work.
