It includes the general description of them and allows to familiarize with the mechanisms of these outposts functioning. Due to the that subject matter had not been developed wider in scientific periodicals, the article represents a contribution to the development of further research. There are not only the United States of America worth considering, but more than 80 countries where there were the outposts of the Polish Workers’ Party and the Polish United Workers’ Party.

It was then one of the many elements of the policy imposing the conditions of the socialist state. The basis of the preliminary archival research of the article are the materials made by the Foreign Department of the Central Committee, kept in the Central Archives of Modern Records in Warsaw. The library with rich and extensive collections of records allowed to reconstruct the acting mechanisms of the discussed outposts.
