About the Refuseniks On June 15, 1970, twelve citizens of the Union of the Soviet Socialist Republics purchased every ticket on a flight from Leningrad to Priozersk. Claiming that they were traveling to a wedding, they prepared to board the ten-seater Antonov An-2. Their true objective was to hijack the plane, fly to Sweden and leave their homeland. Before they boarded the place at Leningrad’s Smolny airfield, government authorities arrested them. During the next eighteen years, many lobbied the Soviet government for their release, including advocates from Colorado. http://denverlibrary.org/content/exhibit-refuseniks
