20 ofre av NKVD ble tidligere denne uken funnet i Glubokoye, Belarus, daværende Polen. Sovjetiske prosjektiler ble funnet sammen med levningene. Lokale historikere sier ofrene mest trolig ble skutt av NKVD mellom 1939 og 1941. Det ventes at flere polske ofre blir gravd frem i byen som da var polsk område.
BBC: The remains of more than 20 suspected victims of Joseph Stalin’s secret police have been found in the basement of a church in northern Belarus.
Soviet bullets were found with the remains at Glubokoye, a village which had been in Poland but fell into Soviet hands in 1939.
A youth group discovered the remains earlier this week, reports say.
Local historians said the victims had most probably been shot by the NKVD secret police between 1939 and 1941.
«I think we can all but rule out any suggestion that these people were shot by the Germans during the occupation,» historian Igor Kuznetsov told Reuters.
