Soviets Use Draft_ Evasion as Excuse to Deny Exit. Visa

NEW YORK (JTA) —
Jewish activists here and
abroad are concerned about
the apparent crackdown on
Soviet Jewish young men
who are of military age and
who apply to emigrate to Is-
rael, according to the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry (NCSJ).
The latest incident, con-
cerning the plight of Grig-
ory Geishis, 20, of Lenin-
grad, indicates that the
Soviet government is, once
again, using the pretext of
"draft evasion" to imprison
young men who wish to
leave the country.
In recent years, several
young men have been in-
carcerated for the same rea-
son, the latest one being
Boris Kalendarov, who is
serving a two-year sentence
in a labor camp.
Geishis, who was expel-
led from a university in
Leningrad, was
scheduled to appear be-
fore his local draft board
on May 12. Instead of ap-
pearing at the draft
office, he delivered a
formal statement to the
Military Commissar of
his district, stating why
he would not serve in the
army.
He specifically cited that
he was refused permission
to emigrate because of his
mother's alleged access to
classified information.
Therefore, because he did
not want to be privy to state
secrets, Geishis told them
that he did not want to serve

on the grounds given to may
other Jewish applicants,
that he somehow had ac-
quired "state secrets."
Boris only sees his son
in photographs, and
hears his baby talk on the
phone.
Meanwhile, the Student
Struggle for Soviet Jewry
and Union of Councils for
Soviet Jews reported that
Soviet authorities have in-
stituted a "moral pogrom"
against that city's Jews who

have sought emigration.
According to the SSSJ,
thousands of Jews were il-
legally refused emigration.
The epithets of "traitor" and
"betrayor" were hurled at
them. Many have lost their
jobs.

in the army.
Subsequently, the draft
office held an inquiry, ques-
tioning Geishis for over 45
minutes. The NCSJ learned
that the line of questioning
leveled against him was
demoralizing and humiliat-
ing, with shouts of "traitor"
resounding through -the
office.
Following the inquiry,
the procurator's office
started a criminal file of
draft evasion against
Geishis. Since he is out of
town, his parents were
summoned by the pro-
curator's office and in-
formed of the specific charge
brought against their son
under. Article 80 of the Rus-
sian Republic Criminal
Code.
If convicted he facts

dom for a term of one to

24-year-old Lisa Aliener, a
Philadelphian, demon-
strated for the release of her
husband at Aeroflot Rus-
sian Airlines' Fifth Avenue
office with her 11-month-
old son Sasha, whom his
father (jailed Soviet dissi-
dent Boris Aleiner) has
never seen.
Living until April 1979 in
Russia, Lisa was able to get
a unique glimpse into the
oft-shrouded daily world of
a Soviet citizen. She left
when she was seven months
pregnant.
