The residentura was established here probably in 1967 along the lines of the 6th Section (foreign counterintelligence) and performed primarily defensive tasks. In 1983 the Resident was Lieutenant Colonel František Vacek "Vaniš" (1st Secretary) and the residentura was "open only at the express wish of the young Husák (from 1980 – 1986 the ambassador was Jan Husák Jr., son of President Gustáv Husák – author's note), who as ambassador needed someone to lean on. Otherwise this area was fully under the control of the KGB." The residentura was abolished in1988.
