The article analyzes the publication of the Polish historian Dariusz Rogut “The Attitude of Soviet Security Organs to the Home Army (July 1944 – January 1945).” The reasons for
the problems in the relationship between the Soviet State Security Organs and the underground Polish military organization “Home Army” in the final period of the Second World War are seen in the complex relationship between the Soviet leadership in Moscow and the Polish government in London.
