FCO 141/14370: Singapore: Soviet Activities in South East Asia, including films. Secret - Migrated Archives
Details of Soviet activities in South East Asia, of which there are very few as opposed to local Communist associations throughout the region. It is exceedingly hard to secure reliable evidence of contacts with Moscow or that the activities of the Communists parties are influenced in any way by instructions from Russia. However, details are given of a campaign in Singapore to spread Soviet propaganda through films and periodicals. These are subject to censorship and suggestions made that the censorship laws need to be strengthened, although these are challenged on the grounds of freedom of information.
