Did the Communist Block had movies or series in James Bond style?

I just found out that polish television had too a spy tv series in the 1960s called Stawka większa niż życie (A stake larger than life) in which the main character fights against Nazi Germany in WW2.
It was propagandist communist series, but dialogue were smart, intelligent. Communists (filmmakers) didn't have money for special effect, so they focused on script.

Another Bond-style series was "Pogranicze w ogniu" - "Border (of the Land) in the fire". It was created in 1988, but on television was 1992–1993, so after the fall of communism.
