The KGB was the security agency in the Soviet Union.
Even though the Soviet Union fell in 1990 the KGB was not disbanded. They instead were incorporated into the new Russian government where they only handled foreign intelligence. They are no longer named the KGB but instead the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service.
The CIA stands for the Central Intelligence Agency and it is an independent Government agency.
The CIA provides national security intelligence by collecting and then evaluating foreign intelligence. They then pass this information along to senior US government policymakers so they can make decisions regarding national security.
The CIA will also engage in covert actions if the President directs them to.
During the Cold War, the KGB would have done the jobs of the CIA and FBI.
The KGB seemed to be the more successful of the two organizations as it infiltrated deeper into other organizations such as the CIA and FBI. They were able to recruit people from everywhere and turn them against their home countries. Throughout the cold war they stole secrets from the British and US because they had people in top level organizations.
Both Organizations were the best at gathering foreign intelligence.
