Valentin Domanevka is the director of SovOil's dreaded Secret Police. The Secret Police are a special department of SovOil that handles certain duties considered too sensitive for the regular Security Forces. SP assignments include all diplomatic espionage and information gathering operations, diplomatic black ops such as bribery, intimidation and assassination, internal affairs and Security Forces investigations, and body-guarding high company officials. The Secret Police do not handle military information gathering or military black operations such as corporate sabotage and extraction. They are completely independent of the Security Forces, and the relationship between the two departments sometimes becomes frigid when they investigate each other or share information. Valentin Domanevka and Lupold Korepino have always been suspicious of each other.

Domanevka was a former Deputy Director of the once-legendary KGB. When the KGB was made a tool of the new Union's Central Committee, it became a policing body for the intelligence units of the fourteen republics. Dissatisfied with the historic agency's new role, Domanevka made the jump into the private sector. He has been with SovOil for eighteen years, and was largely responsible for the design and implementation of the corporation's Secret Police. At his urging, the Secret Police were set apart from the Security Forces, and the Secret Police Directorship was made a Board Advisory Committee position. He is one of the longest-tenured executives at SovOil.

At 71, Domanevka is one of the oldest members of the SovOil nucleus. He abandoned his hard-line politics for New Reformism only when it became obvious that the old Soviet Union was doomed. Domanevka is a tall, thin, bald man. He refuses to use cyberware, and he peers out from behind old-fashioned, round spectacles. He is renowned for an uncanny knack of knowing when people are lying or concealing something. One of the most powerful and deeply feared people at SovOil; rumors abound that he was responsible for the imprisonment, torture, and execution of hundreds when he worked for the government in the tumultuous 1980s and '90s.[1]
