Download PDF for this date

Yaacov Kalman, a member of the Israel Embassy personnel in Moscow now back on home leave, said today he knows nothing about a report in the Soviet newspaper, Trud, that he had been charged with anti-Soviet propaganda.

The Trud report also named as another alleged Israel spy a Margarita Mossberg as a supposed member of the Israel Embassy. Kalman said there was no such woman employee in the Embassy. The Israel Foreign Ministry asked the Soviet Embassy today for a clarification of the Trud report.
