Every member of DOBRUS, especially those who actively contributed the factual material or financial aid, and thus enabled publication of this book, will take this book into hands with the feeling of one's duty being fullfilled, despite all the setbacks, unavoidable in our conditions.


Hereby we are presenting the facts of the unmeasurable tragedy of our people and the ugly crimes of the red Moscow against our People, against Ukraine during the first years of the criminal rule of this regime, Communist in its form and Russian in its self.


We express our hearty gratitude to all our members and supporters for the assistance.
