Another mass grave

This time it is near Vladivostok where there were numerous transit camps in the thirties and forties for those who were to be deported to Kolyma. Some, presumably, were disseminated to some other camps. The great poet Osip Mandelstam died in one of those transit camps and was buried in one of the many mass graves. Maybe the one that has just been found.

Can we ask Mr Hague to create an envoy for post-Communist issues?
