Katyn: Sensational new documents and Ilyukhin’s letter to Gryzlov about the Katyn resolution in the Russian State Duma

About the resolution of the State Duma of the Russian Federation "In Memory of the Victims of the Katyn Tragedy"
Wednesday, November 24, 2010


As it has become known to the editors of "The Truth about Katyn", there are now plans to discuss and to adopt a political resolution, "In Memory of the Victims of the Katyn Tragedy", at a meeting in the State Duma of the Russian Federation on November 26, 2010. The draft resolution places responsibility for the Katyn crime, committed by the German occupation authorities in the fall of 1941, on the Soviet Union. The adoption of the anti-Soviet resolution is timed to President of the Russian Federation D.A. Medvedev's visit to Poland on December 6, 2010. In connection with the scheduled attempt of falsifying history on November 26, which contradicts with the interests of Russia, the deputy of the State Duma V.I. Ilyukhin addressed on November 24, 2010 to the Chairman of Russian State Duma B.V. Gryzlov with the following statement:

To the Chairman of the State Duma
of the Russian Federation
B.V. Gryzlov

Dear Boris Vyacheslavovich!

In connection with the discussion at the plenary meeting in the State Duma, on November 26, 2010, of the draft resolution "About the declaration of the State Duma of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation "In Memory of the Victims of the Katyn Tragedy", please issue an instruction to reproduce and to distribute among the deputies the draft notes, which formed the basis for the forgery of L. Beria's letter to J. Stalin about the alleged reviewing of cases of Polish prisoners and applying to them the highest measure of punishment - the shooting. This letter and the forged extract from the decision of the Politburo of the AUCP(b) from March 5, 1940 are being used today by the enemies of Russia, who sacrilegiously present these as the main proof of Stalin's and the Soviet leadership's guilt in shooting the Poles near Katyn in the Smolensk region.

The falsification was carried out in the late 80's - early 90's of last century and it has been established by expert studies and other evidence.

It can be argued, that distortions of the events related to the Katyn tragedy were originally initiated by the well-known people in our country - A. Yakovlev, D. Volkogonov, V. Falin, R. Pikhoya and others.

Explanations will be given during the discussion of the draft resolution.

Attachment: on 4 pages.

Deputy of the State Duma V.I. Ilyukhin

Katyn: Ilyukhin’s letter to Medvedev regarding the Katyn massacre and the fate of 80,000 Red Army POWs

V.I. Ilyukhin to D.A. Medvedev: Russia is entitled to require permission to raise a monument in Poland to the victims of Polish terror, similar to the one raised to the Poles in Katyn

To the President of the Russian Federation
D.A. Medvedev

Dear Dmitry Anatolyevich!

In early December this year you will pay an official visit to Poland.

There is no doubt, that during the discussions about the interstate relations the Polish side will once again raise the so-called "Katyn issue", once again re-activated by western politicians in order to discredit the Russian people and to diminish the role of the Soviet Union's victory in World War II. In addition, referring to the "Katyn case" has quite a specific task - to create a fertile ground for compensation claims against our country for the shooting of the Polish "elite of the nation."

Despite the existence of irrefutable facts that disprove the conventional version of the shooting of 22 thousand Polish POWs by members of the NKVD of the USSR, attempts are being made in order to achieve recognition of this crime as genocide, with consequent presentation of claims to Russia about damage compensation to Poland in an amount currently exceeding more than 100 billion euros. There are already more than 70 lawsuits from the relatives of the murdered Poles present in the international court in Strasbourg, and there is no doubt that their numbers will grow.

Given the above, we express our hope, that during the upcoming visit to Poland our delegation will stand firm and will defend itself from being pulled into a discussion of this issue, which once again will be wittingly used in anti-Russian purposes.

As a counterbalance, we consider it possible to raise before the Polish side the question of clarifying the fate of 130,000 Red Army soldiers, who fell into Polish captivity in 1920. According to existing information, more than 80,000 people died from brutal treatment, hunger, mass diseases and executions, something that Poland, as we know, does not want to admit. Russia has the right to request permission to raise on their territory a monument to the victims of Polish terror, similar to the monument, that was raised to the Poles in Katyn.


On behalf of a group of Russian scientists - members of the Public Commission about Katyn
Vice-chairman of the Committee of the State Duma
for Constitutional Legislation
and State Construction,
Honoured Lawyer of the Russian Federation, Professor
V. I. Ilyukhin.
