And it was the 37-38 year, shot time, he risked when he ironically and in Odessa described what the Soviet government was doing. From his correspondence it can be seen that Kozachinsky was forced to write what he did not want. They wanted the book to become an ode to the criminal investigation of the Soviet government, but Kozachinsky wrote in his own way, despite the fact that at that time he needed a bowl of soup. ”
