NKVD

The '''People's Commissariat for Internal Affairs''' ( ) was a law enforcement agency of the Soviet Union that directly executed the rule of power of the All Union Communist Party (Communist Party of the Soviet Union). It was closely associated with the Soviet secret police, which at times was part of the agency, and is known for its political repression (Soviet political repressions) during the era of Joseph Stalin.

The NKVD contained the regular, public police force of the USSR, including traffic police (Traffic#Rules of the road), firefighting, border guards and archives. It is best known for the activities of the Gulag and the Main Directorate for State Security (Main Directorate for State Security (USSR)) (GUGB), the predecessor of the KGB. The NKVD conducted mass extrajudicial executions, ran the Gulag system of forced labor camps and suppressed underground resistance, and was also responsible for mass deportations of entire nationalities (Population transfer in the Soviet Union) and Kulaks to unpopulated regions of the country. It was also tasked with protection of Soviet borders (NKVD Border Troops) and espionage, which included political assassinations abroad, influencing foreign governments and enforcing Stalinist policy (Stalinism) within communist movements in other countries.
