The main reason for its creation was to subvert the attempts by German forces to infiltrate the Red Army on the Eastern Front. The counterintelligence department (Департамент контрразведки (ДКР) on Russian). The 3rd Department had the task of capturing German spies in the rear and organizing radio games with their help.
