Russian Archives on the Assassination

Recommended Posts

The information can be found on the "History Matters" web-site

Thank you. The website provides this summary of the documents:

Some of the documents relate to the decision to allow Lee Harvey Oswald to stay in the Soviet Union in 1959, when Oswald requested Soviet citizenship. These papers are interesting mostly for the signatures on them, showing that this decision reached very high levels within the Soviet government.

The remainder of the documents were generated in the wake of the assassination of President Kennedy, and reveal the Soviets' fears of being tied to Oswald and their perception that the assassination was a right-wing conspiracy designed to make it look like Oswald was sponsored by the KGB.
