What can the former KGB archives in Ukraine reveal about Czechoslovakia and the ethnic Czechs persecuted in the USSR?

The evening will also include the official launch of the Digital Archive of NKVD/KGB Documents on Czechoslovak History, introduced by the aforementioned along with colleagues from the Department of Cybernetics at the University of West Bohemia in Pilsen.

The event will be interpreted into Ukrainian.
