The hope that Yury DMITRIEV, as in April 2018, might again be acquitted at the Tuesday, 16 June hearing prompted me to post a longish survey (over 1,000 words), summarising all the issues surrounding this complex affair: the charges, the fate of Sergei Koltyrin, the “new hypothesis” about Sandarmokh, and so on. There are numerous useful links in the survey to the many posts and pages that have accumulated on this site over the past three years. it’s worth a read.
I ended my piece with the assertion that the Dmitriev Affair would prove as important, in its own way, as the Dreyfus Affair at the turn of the 20th century — for Russia and for the wider world.
