The Guests in the Basement

Lynch, Kevin
March 1980
National Review;3/21/1980, Vol. 32 Issue 6, p355
The article deals with the persecution of Russian Pentecostals by the Soviet Union that decided to hold them captive inside the U.S. Embassy in Moscow, Russia. Several improvements have taken place in favor of the Russian Pentecostals, including the concession to conduct interviews with the press indoors and the permission for the religious families to attend Catholic Mass inside the embassy. Through U.S. diplomacy, the Soviet Union has finally allowed the seven prisoners to emigrate as long as they leave the Embassy and return to Chernogorsk.
