They are both responsible for the external security and international interests of their nations.

By the way, the failed coup of 1991 ended the KGB which as a result was reorganised and split into two separate agencies: the secret police agency FSB (Federal Security Service of the Russian Federation responsible for internal security like our FBI) and the espionage agency SVR (Foreign Intelligence Service).
