A Moscow report reaching here Monday said that Jews in Kiev have been warned by the KGB they face “lengthy” sentences if they try to take part in memorializing Jews and others massacred by Nazis at Babi Var. Three Jews at a Moscow news conference disclosed the KGB threats, the report said. The three, who have been denied visas to emigrate, said the KGB had warned Jews not to go near Babi Yar Sept. 29, the massacre’s 36th anniversary.
