He conducted missions to procure secret scientific and technical information, in the areas of electronics, radiolocation and jet aircraft technology. He arrived in New York in 1941, recuited Julius and Ethel Rosenberg who helped him supply the Soviet Union with top secret information on the U.S. Manhattan project to develop the atomic bomb. In 1947, he was dispatched to London as deputy chief of intelligence operations. There he made contact with Klaus Fuchs, who provided him with the important nuclear information on the structure of the hydrogen bomb. Feklisov returned to the United States to head Soviet intelligence operations in Washington from 1960 to 1964. As the KGB resident, he played a key role as the intermediary between the Kremlin and Washington in what became the basis of resolution for the 1962 Cuban missile crisis. In his career as a spy for the Soviet Union, he ran a total of 17 foreign intelligence agencies. Feklisov was portrayed in the films "The Missiles of October" (1974) and "Thirteen Days" (2000).
