Letters: Soviet Guilt

Reader Alexei Perevoshchikov, a representative of the Novosti Press Agency in Moscow, stated ((LETTERS, May 25)), "The Soviet Union demands the punishment of war criminals, for whom it recognizes no statute of limitations . . ." We will believe this statement if the Soviet Union begins to punish its own war criminals. The Soviet Union concluded a treaty with Hitler and, with Nazi permission, occupied the Baltic States and part of Poland. Only when Moscow re-establishes independence in these countries will confidence in the Soviet Union be restored.
