Security Service release: Soviet intelligence agents and suspected agents
Juliet Stuart GLASER (KV 2/3325) 17/10/1922 - 13/10/1959
An American communist, Glazer was identified (as POYNTZ) by Krivitsky, a Soviet intelligence officer who defected to the US just before the start of the Second World War, as 'an RIS agent in New York for receipt of naval and military information'. She disappeared from New York in 1937. Krivitsky suggested she had been silenced because of fears she knew too much and might talk following the liquidation of her lover, the Russian Intelligence Service officer General Vitiuta Kazimirovich Putna. At this time (1936-1938), Stalin ordered the purge of Communist Party and government officials and many Russian intelligence officers in Russia and abroad, so it is speculated she may have fallen foul of this action.
