E125: Matthew LUXMOORE on Denis KARAGODIN’s crusade in Tomsk

– "Matthew LUXMOORE, a Moscow-based correspondent for RFE/RL, discusses his March 2021 article about an amateur researcher in Tomsk named Denis KARAGODIN who’s spent the better part of a decade compiling archival documents about the execution of his great-grandfather in 1938 by officers in the NKVD. Earlier this year, the local authorities reportedly started building a criminal case against KARAGODIN on defamation charges filed by the relatives of some of his grandfather’s supposed executioners."

"He spent years uncovering the Stalin-era execution of his great grandfather. Lawsuits seek to bury the evidence." – [May 9, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. GMT+7] by Robyn DIXON (Moscow bureau chief) – The Washington Post.

"<...> Karagodin, who is working on a doctoral thesis when not researching, is facing two legal cases seeking to shut down karagodin.org, a sprawling online museum recounting his discoveries, full of documents, fascinating historical tangents — and a tab with the heading “murderers.”<...>"

"If Karagodin is sanctioned by the courts, it would mark another ominous turn as Russian security chiefs tighten their grip and Putin cracks down on activists, journalists and opponents such as jailed Kremlin critic Alexei Navalny.

Karagodin’s efforts for justice and transparency also offer a template for others to follow — provided they have the energy and time to overcome bureaucratic resistance. <...>"

“There’s been a murder,” he told the FSB major, asking to see the archive. The major, surprised, countered: “Write a request. <...>"

"Karagodin is planning a podcast to drum up public pressure."

Американский "The New Yorker" рассказал о "Расследовании КАРАГОДИНА"

Один из ведущих американских интеллектуальных журналов "The New Yorker" вышел со статьёй, рассказывающей о "Расследовании КАРАГОДИНА":

"In the Siberian city of Tomsk, a man who has been researching the circumstances of his great-grandfather’s execution during Stalin’s Great Terror has been accused of defamation, by the son of a deceased executioner.) If a person whose name has supposedly been tarnished is long dead, the notion of defamation may seem absurd as a legal matter. But it represents the core of the memory wars: the current generation feels implicated in the crimes of its forebears, precisely because the ruling parties’ politics in both countries are the politics of the past."

Источник: "The Historians Under Attack for Exploring Poland’s Role in the Holocaust" by Masha Gessen, 26.04.2021, – The New Yorker.

В статье упоминается эпизод расследования, когда сын сотрудника НКВД, принимавшего участие в массовых убийствах советских граждан в 1937-1938 годах, обвинил нас в дискредитации имени своего отца.

Сын сотрудника Новосибирского НКВД подал заявление в полицию на руководителя следственной группы "Расследование КАРАГОДИНА" Дениса КАРАГОДИНА, обвиняя его в якобы дискредитации имени своего отца.

Внучка палача попросила прощения у правнука убитого им человека. Правнук в ответ протянул руку примирения и предложил "обнулить" ситуацию, полагая покончить, тем самым, с этой бесконечной российской гражданской войной.


On the night of November 19-20, 2016, we received a letter from ZYORYANOV's granddaughter Nikolai Ivanovich, the executioner of the Tomsk City Department of the NKVD who killed KARAGODIN Stepan Ivanovich, and at least 35 people more on January 21, 1938 in the city of Tomsk.

In her letter, Julia (the name is used with her permission) reported that she learned about who her grandfather was only from our publication, which cast her into the deepest shock. Trying to recover from the devastating news, she began to study the materials of the site of the INVESTIGATION in details, but after reading our third publication (see the second), she could not stand it and wrote a letter to us.

"I get help from those who were shot"

In Russian
In English
In German

We will hold them all to account: from Stalin to the specific executioner in Tomsk, including the driver of the "black voronok" (Voronok – a black car used by the officers of NKVD to arrest “traitors of the country”). One man kills another, and then says: you know, I killed him, but here's the certificate that I rehabilitated him - now everything is Okay. No, it's not okay. And it is absolutely obvious. We believe that the discussion that never happened in the 1950s or in the 1980s has now begun!


Степан Иванович Карагодин

Stepan Ivanovich Karagodin

56-year-old peasant Stepan Ivanovich Karagodin was arrested on the night of December 1, 1937 by the members of the Tomsk State Military Committee of the NKVD, convicted by the Special Conference as the organizer of a spy-sabotage group and a resident of Japanese military intelligence and was sentenced to death by shooting. The verdict was carried out on January 21, 1938. His wife and children did not know about the execution and hoped that he was alive. In the late 50's they received a certificate of rehabilitation, which stated that Stepan Ivanovich "died in prison."

Денис Карагодин

Denis Karagodin

The great-grandson of Stepan Ivanovich, who graduated from the Faculty of Philosophy of Tomsk University, 34-year-old Denis Karagodin decided to identify the names of those who were guilty of falsifying accusations against those arrested in the "Harbinskiy case" and trace the criminal chain - from the Kremlin initiators of the "Great Terror" to ordinary performers in Tomsk , right up to the drivers of the "black voronok" and typists who reprinted the papers of the NKVD. The archives of the Soviet secret services are extremely reluctant to share information, but Denis managed to get a lot of documents showing how the machine of Stalin's repressions worked, killing innocent people.

A Russian Fights for Stalin’s Victims. Nearly 80 years ago, Joseph Stalin’s secret police shot the great-grandfather of Denis Karagodin. Now he has shaken Russia with a landmark investigation. <...>"They buried him here and thought the story was over," says Mr. Karagodin, a fast-talking 34-year-old who shares the intense eyes that stare out from photographs of his great-grandfather. Stepan was a victim of the Soviet dictator's Great Terror against so-called enemies of the people. He had been charged with spying for Japan, but in 1955, after Stalin's death, Stepan's name was cleared. "With that, they thought that the matter was settled," said Mr. Karagodin. "I wanted to show that it wasn't."<...> – Friday, 16 December 2016, 14:00 GMT, The Wall Street Journal – http://www.wsj.com/articles/a-russian-fights-for-stalins-victims-1481896844
