Operational Situation Report USSR No. 80

I. Political Survey


II. Reports of Einsatzgruppen and Einsatzkommandos


Observations Made and Measures Taken by the Security Police

Besdies the thorough liquidation of the Party organization and the operations to clear the country of Jews who constitute the most evil disintegration factor, the executive operations by Einsatzgruppe C at present also include, above all, the fight against the partisan nuisance, from the well-organized band and the individual sniper down to the systematic rumor monger.


Since, however, primarily in the large towns, the ever increasing security tasks cannot be solved by the Einsatzkommandos alone, since they are too weak for this purpose, mounting importance is being attached to the creation and organization of a regular police service. Well screened, particularly reliable Ukrainians are employed for this purpose; moreover, a network of confidential agents, predominantly composed of ethnic Germans, has been created with great success. In the Kolchoses these tasks have mostly been conferred upon the Kolchos managers, the Starostes.

At Kirovo the development has reached a stage where the men enlisted for this purpose are already receiving their pay from the municipality from funds seized from Jews and are obtaining their rations from a small farm that has been especially allocated to them.
