Zionists Barred from General Amnesty in Crimean Republic

Download PDF for this date

Zionists are excluded from the general amnesty in Crimea which was issued today on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the Crimean Soviet Republic.

Zionists are termed “anti-Soviet politicians” and are grouped with those sentenced for bribery and banditism, who are also excluded from the amnesty. Other prisoners, including criminals who were sentenced for not more than two years imprisonment or hard labor, will be released. All other political prisoners, arrested for “crimes” similar to those of the Zionists, will not be amnestied.
