Cryptonym: AEDONOR

Definition:
Soviet officer Yuri Ivonovich Nosenko, who defected in Feb 1964 with information about Oswald.
Status:
Documented
Discussion:
Nosenko apparently was assigned three separate crypts at different times: AEBARMAN, AEFOXTROT, and AEDONOR. For further discussion, see the AEBARMAN crypt entry.
Sources:

Cold Warrior, by Tom Mangold, p.166

from the book: [Nosenko's] designation would later be changed twice for routine security reasons, first to "AEBARMAN" and then to "AEDONOR" after 1965.

104-10054-10378: MEMO EVALUATING AEDONOR'S INFORMATION ON OSWALD

This memo for the chief of CIA'S Soviet Russia division is clearly about Nosenko.

104-10429-10115: MEMO:FOLLOW-UP REPORT ON THE OSWALD CASE/AEDONOR

Another memo reporting on interviews with Nosenko; this one's NARA RIF sheet has both NOSENKO and AEDONOR as subjects.
