Milshtein, Solomon Rafailovich

   An important member of Lavrenty Beria’s political machine, Milshtein served in the Communist Party in Georgia, and then in Moscow in the NKVD. Milshtein was Beria’s satrap in a number of critical posts in the security service in Moscow and the provinces. He was repeatedly decorated, and he was made a lieutenant general in 1945. He was serving as deputy chief of the Ukrainian MGB when Beria fell. He was arrested in June 1953, tried on 30 October 1954, and shot two days later.
