4. FSO is an agency of the Government of Russia (GOR) 
tasked with the protection of the President of the 
Russian Federation and other state officials.  The 
agency is also responsible for the security of certain 
state property, such as the Kremlin. 
 
5. The camera in reftel will be used to upgrade the 
surveillance system of a facility under the 
jurisdiction of the FSO. The camera has not yet been 
installed; the upgrades to other systems are being 
completed first.  Until it is installed, the camera 
system is being stored in a high-value area of the 
Pergam warehouse.  Access to the warehouse is limited 
to authorized personnel and a security officer guards 
the high-value area at all times. Once installed, no 
more than ten people will have direct access to the 
system.  Pergam has trained the FSO staff on the use 
of the camera.

writing of the license conditions by the exporter, and 
signed an end-user agreement which restated the 
license conditions. 
 
7. Recommendations: Post recommends Federalnaya 
Sluzhba Ohrany, Moscow, Russia, as reliable recipients 
of sensitive U.S. origin commodities.
