Synopsis by Hal Erickson

The Russian Military Secret is a tribute to the Soviet secret service. When the Nazis draw up plans to kidnap a Russian inventor, the Moscow counterespionage bureau tumbles to the sceme. A secret agent volunteers to pose as the inventor and provide false information. Even in a patriotic film of this nature, the most interesting character is the Nazi villain, here played by Victor Belokurov. Reflecting changing tastes in filmmaking, the heroine, Natalia Alisova, looks very much like a typical Hollywood glamour queen. Within a few years, American audiences would not be quite as responsive to stories praising the work of Soviet counterspies as they were to Military Secret.
