Presently many political prisoners have been placed in these prison camps. This USA satellite photograph of the area was taken on April 13, 1976. The ground is covered with snow.

Several hundred kilometers southeast from Moscow is the Mordovian A.S.S.R. where the Soviet regime has developed a vast system of slave labour camps.

One of best known "inhabitants" of these camps is former Latvian prisoner of conscience Viktors Kalnins. There have been many others. Among them: Gunars Rode, Uldis Olkants, Dailis Rijnieks, J. Kapostins.
