Dov Sperling, a Soviet Jewish militant who emigrated to Israel in 1969, claimed here today that there is no future for Jewry in Russia and emigration is the only solution. He claimed that masses of Soviet Jews faced exile to Siberia because of an alleged trend toward re-Stalinization in the USSR. He said it was useless to press for Jewish cultural rights in the Soviet Union because the Moscow authorities would never grant them. Sperling, 33, is visiting Argentina as a guest of local followers of Israel’s nationalist Herut faction. He said the only way to secure Jewish emigration from the Soviet Union was continuing international pressure on the Soviets.
