Subject: Russia deleting records of Gulag victims under secret 2014 order

If prisoners survived their lengthy sentences in the far-flung labour camps
and were freed, their case files were destroyed. Archive cards were
created, however, recording their names, date and place of birth, what
camps they had been in and when they were liberated.

But it has emerged that a secret 2014 decree signed by 11 government
agencies allows officials to dispose of a prisoner's card after his or her
80th birthday. This applies to a huge number of victims, as Joseph Stalin's
Great Purge began in 1936.
