Ahmad Mogharebi who was a Soviet spy

The Soviet Union was one of the victorious nations of the war, and Soviet propaganda was adept at arguing that it was thanks to it that fascism had suffered a historic defeat. For quite a few young Iranian officer candidates, the Soviet Union was a natural ally. And the events surrounding the overthrow of Mohammad Mossadegh in the course of Operation Ajax only reinforced this view. Ahmad Mogharebi must also have been convinced that he was serving a “good cause”, because the payment for the information provided was initially quite low. Mogharebi made a career in the Persian military, rising to become the head of strategic planning. Every military plan, every defensive position, and every plan for building garrisons or military bases passed through his desk.
