On May 10 the US House of Representatives unanimously passed a bill
"expressing the sense of Congress that in 1988 in celebration of the
Millennium of the Christianization of Kievan-Rus' the Soviet Union should
proclaim a general amnesty for imprisoned Christians and allow Christians to
practice their faith within their churches and homes." (The bill was
introduced by Rep. Chris Smith of New Jersey at the suggestion of Dr. Ernest
Gordon of CREED, who helped write it.) Recently Gorbachev announced that
"all" prisoners of conscience will be released by the end of this
year. Will this seemingly magnanimous gesture be extended to all of the
following Orthodox, known still to be in the Gulag as of August, this year?
