Kedia's name came up again in connection with the SW.:1LIN opera- tion. D37 was put in touch with SHULGIN by KEDIA, whth whom he (SHULDIN) lived in Geneva, according to a report by DB23 and DB5 of June 46. Thru SHULGIN, KEDIA's offer to use his Georgian chain was indirectly renewed. KEDIA made his offer indirectly to the ITIP:TR

(UKRAINIAN CHIEF COUNCIL OF LIBERAITION), probably well aware of

SHULGIN's connection with us.

12 July 46. KEDIA, in a letter to Rostyslow SHUL3II: proposes that SHULGIN contact KEDIA's men in Turkey (Istanbul). According to

1946 (con0d):

KEDIA,.he has nine a.-ents in Turkey. KEDIA's chief representative is MENAGARI-who has contacts with the followinrz Turkish officials:

1. NADJI-BEY (Naci Bey), Chief of the .1-urkish rilitary Intell.

C(.1. CELAL BEY, Chief of the 'kurkish IS for western Turkey.

Among KEDIA's agents is on Alexander KANKAVA who parachuted into Georgia 1942 and returned recently , to Istanbul. KEDIA apparently gave this information to SHULGIN for trans- mittal to the UHI.R. representative Zuf-ene STACHIV. UHUR is repo rted to have decided to organize an intelligence center in Turkey, and STACHIV' was charged with the mission. SHULGIN, however said that "KEDIA is very impulsive, and not always wise in the choice of his associates." SHULGIN wants to get the advice of the ",mericaLl authorities" what to do, and their reaction to KLDIA's list.
