Albrecht Müller omits that during the Cold War both sides tried to subvert the other by secretly channeled money - but the Eastern side spent much more.

"Nach den Erkenntnissen der Unabhängigen Kommission zur Überprüfung des Vermögens der Parteien und Massenorganisationen der DDR erhielt die DKP im Zeitraum 1981 bis 1989 Zahlungen von der DDR (Bereich Kommerzielle Koordinierung) in Höhe von insgesamt 526.309.000 DM (etwa 270 Millionen Euro). Diese Beträge wurden in den Rechenschaftsberichten an den Deutschen Bundestag nicht ausgewiesen.[81]"

"The CIA transferred around $2 million yearly in cash to Solidarity, which suggests that $10 million total is a reasonable estimate for the 5-year total. There were no direct links between the CIA and Solidarnosc, and all money was channeled through third parties.[75]"
