Aleksandr Semyonovich Feklisov (March 9, 1914 – October 26, 2007) was a Soviet spy, the NKGB Case Officer who received information from Julius Rosenberg and Klaus Fuchs, among others.

Klaus Fuchs, spy who nobody suspected his mildness -even blankness concealed an amount of belief & daring. Beaten up by Brownshirts in Germany, you’d never guess it from his Los Alamos persona: German-born physicist worked in Los Alamos on atom bomb project for 2 yrs he gave KGB contacts plans for bldg hydrogen bomb. & provided key data on the production of uranium 235 so Soviets knew the # of bombs possessed by the US. Tried & sentenced to 14 yrs in prison
