Charges that the Israeli Embassy in Moscow was being used for the distribution of “political literature alien to the Soviet people” were made in the Soviet capital by Trud, organ of the USSR labor union movement, according to a Moscow dispatch received here today.

Trud was reported as specifically accusing Abraham Agmon said to be the First Secretary at the Israeli Embassy, of handing out “nationalist, Zionistic literature.” The newspaper also accused Mr. Agmon of “collecting rumors and yarns about Soviet reality.”
