Soviet Officials Act to StiflePublicity on Jewish Activists

NEW YORK (JTA)—Soviet
authorities have taken a new
series of actions aimed at
stifling information about the
situation of Jewish activists
in the USSR, according to re-
ports from the Student Strug-
gle for Soviet Jewry.
The Kremlin is worried
that the publicity surround-
ing their treatment of the
activists will increase
chances that the Jackson
Amendment and other legis-
lation restricting trade credits
will be passed by Congress,
the SSSJ reported.
On July 19, the Soviet po-
lice searched the apartment
of Moscow scientist Alex-
ander Voronel and confiscat-
ed 1,000 pages of documents
about the condition of Soviet
Jews and the scientists'
seminar which wsa to have
taken place during President
Nixon's trip to the Soviet
Union but was postponed
until September.
A complaint to the prose-
cutor's office that the con-
fiscated objects were not
listed on the police search
warrant, and therefore taken
illegally, was rejected.
The search was the first of
its kind in Moscow in two
years, and the SS'SJ said ac-
tivists fear the documenta-
tiontaken listing names and
addresses of Jews, might
lead to another round of anti-
Jewish trials.
The SSSJ also reported
that the family of Moscow
activist Victor Lapidus has
been told by Soviet authori-
ties that they can leave the
country in "18 months."
Information reaching the
SSSJ said that it is feared
that this is an indication of

a "long-term permission" tac-
tic which will be used by the
authorities, promising future
visas in return for silence by
the activists in the time be-
fore they obtain the visas.
In other developments,
Vladimir Kisliuk, a 39-year-
old engineer living in Kiev
is now at home in a weaken-
ed state after being beaten
by four KGB men June 19,
the SSSJ said.
Kisliuk, a Jewish activist
who traveled to Moscow to
consult wtih other Jews on
how to appeal to President
Nixon during his USSR visit,
was met by the men after
work last month and beaten
severely.
The SSSJ said one of the
KGB men told Kisliuk, "This
is a lesson for going to Mos-
cow. If you attempt to meet
with activists there again,
you won't get off so lightly."
After being hospitalized,
Kisliuk was suddenly dismis-
sed, even though his doctor
had told him earlier he would
need specialized tests and
would have to remain in the
