For the first time arrested by the Russians in 1921 while crossing the border from Poland to Russia with funds received from his bishop, Peter Mańkowski, living then in Poland for helping priests in Russia. Soon released. Arrested again in the spring of 1922 together with a group of Catholics and accused of „hoarding church valuables”. On 02.09.1922 together with 4 other Polish priests (Fr Felix Lubczyński, Fr. Valerian Szymański and Fr Richard Szyszko–Bohusz, among them) and a few civilians sentenced in Kamieniec Podolski to death. The sentence thanks to the intervention of Polish consulate in Kharkiv got however commuted to 5 years in prison. In 09.1923 ransomed out and released. Later constantly harassed by the Russians. In 1933 arrested yet again. And yet again released. On his way back to Kamieniec Podolski suffered a stroke. Spent three years paralysed, confined to bed under the care of a former parishioner.

11.08.1937 Russian genocide: On 11.08.1937 Russian leader Stalin decided and NKWD head, Nicholas Jeżow, signed a „Polish operation” executive order no 00485. 139,835 Poles living in Russia were thus sentenced summarily to death. 111,091 were murdered. 28,744 were sentenced to deportation to concentration camps in Gulag. Altogether however more than 100,000 Poles were deported, mainly to Kazakhstan, Siberia, Kharkov and Dniepropetrovsk. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2016.03.14])

Great Purge 1937: In the summer of 1937 Polish Catholic priests held in Solovetsky Islands, Anzer Island and BelBaltLag were locked in prison cells (some in Sankt Petersburg). Next in a few kangaroo, murderous Russian trials (on 09.10.1937, 25.11.1937, among others) run by so‑called „Troika NKVD” all were sentenced to death. They were subsequently executed by a single shot to the back of the head. The murders took place either in Sankt Petersburg prison or directly in places of mass murder, e.g. Sandarmokh or Levashov Wilderness, where their bodies were dumped into the ditches. Other priests were arrested in the places they still ministered in and next murdered in local NKVD headquarters (e.g. in Minsk in Belarus), after equally genocidal trials run by aforementioned „Troika NKVD” kangaroo courts.

Trial of 02.09.1922: Trial of 5 Catholic priests in Kamieniec Podolski, accused of objecting to church property being confiscated and of treason. All were sentence to death by the Russians. The sentences were subsequently commuted to prison terms and after Polish representatives intervention and payment of extortion tribute by their parishioners all were let off.
