Download PDF for this date

Sylva Zalmanson Kuznetsov, 28-year-old engineer serving a 10-year strict-regime sentence in the Soviet Union, has been transferred from labor camp to prison for six months, according to Jewish sources here. The sources said the move, similar to that ordered recently for Valeriy Kukui, was probably in retaliation” for overseas protests against her incarceration. Mrs. Kuznetsov, arrested in June, 1970, for alleged complicity in a purported hijacking plot, was convicted in Dec., 1970.
