lyubarsky kronid (framed, 4 web)A fortnightly bulletin focusing on events in the USSR and on particular groups and individuals at risk there. It began circulation in November 1978 and the last issue appeared in December 1992. (This link is to the original Russian edition; it was also translated into English.)

The bulletin was the brainchild of its founder and chief editor, the astrophysicist and human rights activist, Kronid Lyubarsky.


Reports from both periodicals appear occasionally on the “Rights in Russia” website, especially when contemporary events or the actions of particular individuals evoke parallels with the past.
