On October 29, on the eve of the Day of Remembrance for Victims of Political Repressions, High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation Tatiana Moskalkova took part in the «Recovery of Names» action at the Solovki Stone on Lubyanka Square.

Tatiana Moskalkova opened the ceremony, having read the stories of people shot on the territory of Moscow during the years of Soviet repression. The High Commissioner described the tragic fate of chief mechanic of the Sovetskugol Trust Ivan Peymakov, who was shot on August 17, 1939, and worker of the «Sixth Congress of Accountants» collective farm, bookkeeper Vasiliy Kozin, who was executed on December 8, 1937. In her speech, the High Commissioner stressed that both of them were less than forty years old.

Tatiana Moskalkova also recalled that 80 years had passed since the days of Stalin’s repression. According to the High Commissioner, the opening of the memorial «The Wall of Sorrow» is an important event in the life of society, which will serve as the point of no return to the past.

"For those who held an archival file in their hands, the three pages — the denunciation, the troika decision and the execution warrant — become a part of their lives forever and build their system of values," Tatiana Moskalkova said.
