Nadezhda Fradkova, who arrived in Israel Sunday, is the first woman Prisoner of Zion to immigrate from the USSR in many years, Israeli newspapers noted Monday. She spent the years 1984-86 in a Labor camp.

Another new arrival from the Soviet Union Sunday was Grigory Geishis, also a Prisoner of Zion, who spent two years in the “Gulag” for ” avoiding army service.”
