According to Jewish sources in the Soviet Union, Aleksandr Feldman of Kiev, who was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in a forced labor camp for “hooliganism,” and whose appeal had been rejected by the Ukrainian Court of Appeals on Dec. 27, will now appeal to the Supreme Court of the Ukrainian Soviet Republic. Fifty Jews from Moscow, Leningrad, Novosibirsk, Kiev, Riga, Tallin and Tbilisi issued a public protest, and also sent its text to the International Association of Lawyers, and to a number of Jewish communities.
