PA(TE TEN Russia's Top Brass Living Luxuriously As Puppet 'Guides' By KICHARD O'RKGAN VIENNA M—Lavish villas, servants who once were members of the old aristocracy, big cars and royal meals—tills Is ho»' Russia's military and civilian "advisers" portedly live in Bast Europe. In each country behind the Iron Curtain, Russian military men are present, In hundreds to thousands. With them are other hundreds of economic, political and technical experts, rarely seen in public, who guide (he Communist puppet government. It is part of their job to report to Moscow. Thus, the Communist bosses of Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Albania go all out to make them happy and see the}r reports home are favorable. 1'Ienty of Luxury This means plenty of luxury for the Russians. If any explaining is needed to the workers, the Communists say: "The Russians liberated our land from the Nazis. The flower of their manhood tiled for us. They are entitled to some privileges for their sacrifices for our people/' The privileges are extensive. The Russians live either In homeK of the dispossessed rich, or In newly built luxury settlements where they c»n be off by themselves away from the local folk. Reliablo reports from behind the Iron Curtain sny the Russians me treated like diplomats. The Soviet Union's real diplomatic representatives are treated like kings. In Budapest, for instance, Russia's ambassador. J.D. Kisseljov, lives in a magnlflcant block-long home. He has many servants and the finest, rarest foods are served to visitors. Not fnr away on » hill, Kisseljov has another luxurious mansion with line swimming pool and gardens. It is rarely used. In recent weeks, two refugees arrived in the West from Bulgaria and Albania. The Bulgarians, a soldier, said each Bulgarian regiment has two Soviet officers with the rank of colonel who wear Russian uniforms. "They enjoy privileged post- lions," the refugee said. "Their salaries are about four times higher than comparable Bulgarian officers and they nnd Ilielr families receive special food aiid clothing rations nnd belter housing." The Bulgarian said the majority of his soldier-colleagues resented it. Western diplomats here say they know that Russian officers and civilians look with great Joy on the possibility of a few months of luxury, leisure and comparative Independence on assignment In Eastern Europe.
