The article reflects on the case of several Siberian Christians who vowed to remain in the U.S. embassy in the Soviet Union in 1978. It criticizes the reluctance of former U.S. President Jimmy Carter to directly address their situation by declaring it as a Soviet concern. It argues in favor of the promise made by President Ronald Reagan in 1979 to support the political refugees. It also describes the efforts by several U.S. legislators to address the issue, such as the introduction of a bill by Democratic Senator Carl Levin.
