THE RECALL

Why was Pavel recalled to Russia on 31st. July 1948? (Apparently on the POBEDA) According to KGB files, 'Stepan' //Fedosimov was recalled because he was suspected of planning to betray his Homeland. Another one of Stalin's Purges was underway and few who were recalled survived it.

There are a number of references and details to follow but for now, the emergence of this information clearly confirms Fedosimov as a prime candidate for being SM.

Background

Fedosimov was Acting Chief of New York Station (KGB) in the year leading up to his return to Russia.

Recently accessed KGB files show his involvement with a range of Espionage activities in the US including the smuggling of a pen-pistol, poisons, and explosives.

This man was clearly a trained KGB agent, he held a senior position which included tasks undertaken on the ENORMOZ project and the coordination of espionage activities for some of the World's most notorious Atom spies. He was also a close friend and ally/handler to Harry Dexter White. Those who follow this case will know that HDW died shortly after Fedosimov's departure, it was an overdose of Digitalis. The exact the same drug that is believed to have killed the Somerton Man.
