During World War II, Victor and Lydia threw themselves into organizing and fund-raising for Russian War Relief, organized the Russian American Society, and took active parts in the American Russian Institute, all in support of the Soviet war effort. Becoming more active in the Communist party, they met Soviet consular officials, including at least one KGB agent. The FBI opened a file on Arnautoff. The Arnautoffs applied for permission to emigrate to the Soviet Union but were turned down.
