«No 17 : 31 December 1970»
(January 1971 Supplement to Chronicle No 17)
PERSONS CONVICTED OR ARRESTED FOR POLITICAL REASONS IN 1969 and 1970
THOSE ARRESTED IN 1969 AND BROUGHT TO TRIAL IN 1970
Those who appeared in an earlier such list (CCE 11.17), are marked with an asterisk. A reference is given in brackets to the issue of the Chronicle of Current Events which reported their subsequent fate.
This first part also includes names of persons arrested or sentenced in 1969 who only came to the notice of the Chronicle in 1970. If no information about them has previously been published, either a reference is given in brackets to the most direct source, or the source is not indicated at all. The most important of these sources [are the Chronicle itself and] the Register of People Convicted in the 1960s [CCE 17.13, No 6].
Information on persons subjected to repression
is given in the following order:
 first name, patronymic, surname; year of birth, trade or profession.
 Date of arrest
 The term and degree of punishment
The type of regime is indicated – in penitentiary facilities (ordinary regime, hard regime [Part Two: Nos 1 and 41], strict regime or Special Regime [Part Two: Nos 8, 46, 67, 68, and 72]) ; and ordinary or Special Psychiatric Hospitals [five from Moscow, heading list below – Gershuni, Gorbanevskaya, Grigorenko, Joffe, Novodvorskaya – and one from Estonia (Paramonov)] – but not the identity and location of the corrective-labour camps, mental hospitals, and so on;
 The source or reference
In a number of cases, if certain information is unknown to the Chronicle, it is with rare exceptions simply omitted. The use of the question mark is an exception. When placed before the name of an arrested person a question mark indicates the uncertainty of the report: in other cases a question mark refers to the section of the entry which immediately (?) precedes it.
(Names marked with an asterisk are not given a number, as these were already published [CCE 11.17] in the list in Issue 11 of the Chronicle.)
PART TWO (CCE 8.15)
The list concludes [Part Two] with the names of persons who died of natural or unnatural causes at their places of imprisonment between December 1969 and December 1970.
