From an article found at:

http://www.assassinationresearch.com/v1n2/worldreaction.html

According to Ian Griggs, the first announcement of the assassination of JFK broadcast in the Soviet Union contained this information:

"Pravda stressed that Kennedy had insisted that Congress should ratify the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty despite sharp attacks from the American ("wild men.")(?)

Ian Griggs compiled his infromtation in the United Kingdom from the Public Record Office (PRO).

In light of the direction of my research over the past several months I find this rather interesting. The exact citation is below:

"Sub-file: NS 103145/30

Under the general title Soviet Coverage of the Assassination of President Kennedy, this lengthy file comprises five sections. The first four cover specific dates (22nd-24th, 25th, 26th and 27th-28th) whilst the fifth is an overall report specifically entitled Soviet Treatment of the Assassination of President Kennedy. This report is undated but as it is based upon the four dated files, it was probably compiled on 29th November 1963.

The file is concerned with daily media coverage of the assassination in the Soviet Union. It explains that the first news of an attempt on Kennedyís life was given in the Moscow Home Service (radio) at 19.28 GMT (1.28pm CST) (Endnote 2) It then quotes the principal Soviet newspapers. Pravda stressed that Kennedy had insisted that Congress should ratify the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty despite sharp attacks from the American ëwild mení. "

"Endnote 2: A BBC Monitoring Service newsflash (copy in authorís possession), timed at 1938 GMT (1.38pm CST), stated: MOSCOW RADIO, HOME SERVICE, BROADCAST THE FOLLOWING, BREAKING INTO ITS NEWS BULLETIN AT 19.28 GMT: +IT HAS JUST BEEN REPORTED FROM NEW YORK: ACCORDING TO AMERICAN PRESS AGENCIES. DURING THE STAY OF U.S. PRESIDENT IN DALLAS, AN ATTEMPT WAS MADE ON HIS LIFE. KENNEDY HAS BEEN SEVERLY WOUNDED BY A FIREARM.+ (See Griggs, Ian (1994), KENNEDY ASSASSINATED! OSWALD MURDERED! (Dallas, TX: JFK Resource Group, 1997), p. 31"

This article and 26 others can be found in Ian's excellent book "No Case to Answer" published by JFK Lancer.

They are all updated and expanded versions of previously published articles. I recommend it to all serious researchers and newcomers alike.
