In December 2018, the National Archive of Latvia began publishing online information left by the KGB in Latvia after the collapse of the USSR in 1991. This has caused quite an uproar as the files contain both the code names and real names of individuals who were possible KGB agents in their own homeland of the Latvian Soviet Republic. Among the some 4,000 people named are a former prime minister of independent post-Soviet Latvia, a supreme court justice, a former foreign minister, and other well-known public figures.
