Scientific novelty and originality. The thesis is the first scientific work in the field of history, which outlines the role and importance of state security bodies in the restoration, institutionalization and fortification of Soviet power in the MSSR in 1944 – 1946, mainly on the basis of unclassified archival materials included in the first time in the scientific circuit.
The scientific problem solved concerns the scientific reasoning of the Soviet security bodies role in the institutionalization and fortification of Soviet power in the MSSR in 1944 –1946, through specific means and methods, including the protection of the regime from internal and external "hostile" elements; highlights the common pattern of the USSR in re-establishing the NKGB bodies and the Soviet regime in the MSSR, in the Latvian SSR, as well as in other re-annexed union republics in 1944; analyzes the methods and means used by Soviet intelligence as discrete levers for modeling the social architecture in the MSSR, in the first postwar years.
Theoretical importance of this paper is to confirm and highlight the role played by the Soviet security bodies in the restoration, institutionalization and fortification of the Soviet regime in the MSSR, as well as to aknowledge the methods and means used by the NKGB-MGB for this purpose between 1944 – 1946, topics that were studied for the first time in the local historiographical field; the importance also stems from the inclusion into the scientific circuit of definitions of the methods and means used by Soviet security bodies in their work in the MSSR, highlighting the conceptual distinction between the notions misused as synonyms "Soviet security bodies" and "state security bodies".
The applicative value of the paper. The results of the research can be used to develop university courses on the history of Soviet security bodies in the MSSR, especially for institutions and training centers specialized in the training and capacity building of personnel in the national security and defence system, but can also serve as a scientific source for writing bachelor's, master's and doctoral dissertations in the field of history, security and defence.
Approval of the results obtained. Some aspects of the researched matters were presented within 10 national and international conferences, published in 16 articles, studies and abstracts in scientific journals and volumes in the Republic of Moldova, as well as abroad.
