The Christian daily, Kristine Dagblad, strongly assailed the Soviet Union for its policy to war the Jews. In a nearly full page article last Friday signed by Miss Visti Christensen and titled “On Soviet Lies,” the paper termed “an outright lie” Soviet Premier Alexei N. Kosygin’s statement in Olberg, Denmark on Dec. 5 that there was no Jewish problem in the USSR. Miss Christensen, referring to a question to Kosygin by the Jewish Telegraphic Agency correspond dent about dissenters being sent to mental asylums, commented in her article: “It is not to be allowed that silence should greet this question.” She added that many such prisoners could testify “after being treated with such preparations as aminazine and sulfazine, healthy people may react like mental patients.”
