Taken to Krukyenychi village and there interrogated. Released under condition that during Sunday sermon will inform his parishioners about an order to hand in any weapons held and advocate joining the Russian Red Army. Later he apparently stated that the order given was fullfilled by nobody owned any weapons and only person who expressed wish to join Russian army was a young hunchback boy… Right after moved to Modrychi village n. Drohobych. There on 27.04.1945 in Syelets village arrested by NKvD Drohobych oblast, apparently accused of refusing to join a so‑called „initiative group” aiming to force the Greek Catholic Church to dissolve and incorporate its structures in Russian Orthodox church (ultimately that took place on 08—10.03.1946 during so‑called Lviv pseudo–synod when a formal „dissolution” of Greek Catholic Church was announced and its incorporation into Russian Orthodox Church took place). Prob. held in Drohobych prison. Accused that, among others, „in 1943 called his parishioners to join Ukrainian 14th Waffen SS–Galizien Grenadiers Division, to fight with Germans against Russians […] and during the search of his premises a machine gun and radio–phone was found”. On 01.11.1945 sentenced by Russian NKVD cangaroo court of Drohobych oblast to 10 years of slave labour in Russian concentration camps Gulag. Transported to a camp in Rubtsovsk in Altai Kraj — prob. part SibLag concentration camps’ complex — where soon perished.

SibLag: Russian concentration camp and forced labour camp (part of Gulag penal system) in Syberia. Founded in 1929. One the largest — initially spread over large area from Omsk to Krasnoiarsk, as matter of fact whole Western Siberian Plain, next subdivided and limited to Novosibirsk, Tomsk and Kemerovo oblasts. Headquarters were in Mariinsk in Kemerovo oblast (for a time also in Novisibirisk), where a central camp for invalids was also operational. Up to 80,000 inmates were held in SibLag (in 1942). Prisoners slaved at railroad construction, forestry, carpentry and in coal mines, and other industrial branches. Closed down in c. 1960. (more on: tspace.library.utoronto.ca [access: 2018.09.02], www.gulagmuseum.org [access: 2014.05.09])

Gulag: Network of Russian slave labour concentration camps. At any given time up to 12 mln inmates where held in them, milions perished. (more on: pl.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09], en.wikipedia.org [access: 2014.05.09])

Drohobych (prisons): Before the outbreak of the II World War in 09.1939 a criminal prison functioned at Drohobych Truskawiecka Str. where c. 1,200‑1,500 inmates were held. After the start in 09.1939 of the first Russian occupation a new jail run by Russian NKVD genocidal organization was opened at Striyska Str. (by regional NKVD headquarters). There in 06.1941, after German attack of their erstwhile ally, Russians, NKVD perpetrated a genocidal massacre of prisoners. After German defeat and start in 1944 of another Russian occupation NKVD returned to the same buildings and again opened their jail, where hundreds and thousands of people suspected of not supporting Russia were held and interrogated. The jail was closed in 1959. The prison at Truskawiecka Str. however remained open throughout the II World War, both during Russian and German occupations, stayed open after the end of military hostilities and operates till today. (more on: btx.home.pl [access: 2020.04.04])

Ribbentrop-Molotov: Genocidal Russian–German alliance pact between Russian leader Joseph Stalin and German leader Adolf Hitler signed on 23.08.1939 in Moscow by respective foreign ministers, Mr. Vyacheslav Molotov for Russia and Joachim von Ribbentrop for Germany. The pact sanctioned and was the direct cause of joint Russian and German invasion of Poland and the outbreak of the II World War in 09.1939. „The war was one of the greatest calamities and dramas of humanity in history, for two atheistic and anti–Christian ideologies — national and international socialism — rejected God and His fifth Decalogue commandment: Thou shall not kill!” (Abp Stanislaus Gądecki, 01.09.2019). The decisions taken — backed up by the betrayal of the formal allies of Poland, France and Germany, which on 12.09.1939, at a joint conference in Abbeville, decided not to provide aid to attacked Poland and not to take military action against Germany (a clear breach of treaty obligations with Poland) — were on 28.09.1939 slightly altered and made more precise when a treaty on „German–Russian boundaries and friendship” was agreed by the same murderous signatories. One of its findings was establishment of spheres of influence in Central and Eastern Europe and in consequence IV partition of Poland. In one of its secret annexes agreed, that: „the Signatories will not tolerate on its respective territories any Polish propaganda that affects the territory of the other Side. On their respective territories they will suppress all such propaganda and inform each other of the measures taken to accomplish it”. The agreements resulted in a series of meeting between two genocidal organization representing both sides — German Gestapo and Russian NKVD when coordination of efforts to exterminate Polish intelligentsia and Polish leading classes (in Germany called Intelligenzaktion, in Russia took the form of Katyń massacres) where discussed. Resulted in deaths of hundreds of thousands of Polish intelligentsia, including thousands of priests presented here, and tens of millions of ordinary people,. The results of this Russian–German pact lasted till 1989 and are still in evidence even today. (more on: en.wikipedia.org [access: 2015.09.30])
