Document 2, of set #2:
Robert Oppenheimer a spy?"
to Merkulov, Feb. 1944, reprinted in The Haunted Wood: Soviet Espionage
in AmericačThe Stalin Era by Allen Weinstein and Alexander Vassiliev,
p. 184. An unidentified KGB agent reports to Merkulov that, while
Oppenheimer has been "cultivated" by Soviet Army Intelligence since
1942, it is unknown whether the physicist has been recruited. If he
has, the NKVD wants Oppenheimer turned over to them; if not, the NKVD
intends to "begin his active cultivation."
