FILE - This April 13, 2010 file photo shows Lana Peters, or Svetlana Alliluyeva, on a rural road outside Richland Center, Wis. Newly declassified files show the FBI was gathering details from informants on how Peters’ arrival in the United State was affecting international relations after her high-profile defection in 1967. Peters, Soviet dictator Josef Stalin’s only daughter, died in a Wisconsin nursing home in 2011. She was 85.
