Well done, Karman!Karman wrote:Supreme Russian Military prosecutor Mr. Savenkov announced that the criminal case initiated by the Military Prosecutor’s Office with regard to the massacre of Polish POW in various Soviet prisons and POW camps in 1940 internationally known as the Katyn case was over in March this year. The Russian Military Prosecutor Savenkov announced that the examination proved that the total number of executed people made 1800 people (22 of them were identified) and that local NKVD authorities bear all the responsibility for the massacre.
I am mentioning this announcement of Mr. Savenkov because the Russian military prosecutor indirectly recognized and confirmed that the group of documents found in the Soviet archives and then published in Poland in 1992 and in Russia in 1993 were bogus.
Even thou in the light of Mukhin's writings the affair looked very dubious to me, the documents in question was the decisive point and I tended to agree with the official version. Now as the documents lose any credibility the debate shall be re-opened, and Mukhin's arguments shall be dealt with and not simply neglected with referral to the "Politburo documents" and Gorby confession.
