Scanned by me.

From a marketing blurb:
Quote:
What has happened inside Soviet Russia since the War? What is life like for the ordinary Muscovite? What does the Russian man-in-the-street think about the reconstruction period now in progress on farm and in factory? Has life become easier? In political affairs, have the Red Army successes led to a growth of nationalist and militarist sentiment? How has the demobbed Russian soldier fared? What is the reason for the sharp and perplexing turns in emphasis in the arts and philosophy? These are just a few of the questions answered by Ralph Parker, now almost the only Western correspondent living in Russia...

Ralph Parker was the London Times and New York Times Moscow correspondent during and for some time after the war. Later he represented the News-Chronicle. His despatches have been widely acknowledged to be among the most informative sent from inside Russia. It was to Parker that Stalin gave the celebrated replies to the Times correspondent's questions about post-war Soviet foreign policy.

There might be isolated cases of queues or lines but nobody ever complained of hunger or malnutrition. Average life expectancy. 81 years old. How can you reach that age if you are malnourished or had experienced hunger. Propaganda is a ploy even in the book, HOW TO BECOME A SPY. World War II SOE Training Manual. British SOE.

Sorry but that's a load of bull. Even in 1990 the male's life exp. was not even 65 years.

Indeed it is a ploy, pedro. And you're using it here.
