Борьба с революционной и антивоенной пропагандой в 1914–1916 гг.м (на материалах Смоленской губернии)
With the outbreak of the First World War, the Smolensk police and gendarmerie faced the activation of revolutionary and anti-war elements in society. Martial law was taken advantage of not only by revolutionary organizations, but also by enemy intelligence. Mass agitation and propaganda in the rear of the Russian army made it possible not only to obtain intelligence information, but also to destabilize the state of the Russian troops at the front and in the rear. The activity of revolutionary propaganda made it possible to achieve the set goals in the form of undermining the combat capability of the Russian troops and the mass surrender of soldiers.
