I am surprised that political comments of this sort are allowed at this website where people are researching on information on their relatives. Half of those who we are researching about were from Poland, including present Belarus. They lived there one hundred and more years ago, and searching in historical archives have nothing to do with the country's present politics. The employees of Archive are cooperative and I have not had delays in getting their replies.

Larry, what is the name of the person you are searching about?
This list is a digitalized list of soldiers killed in the World War One, if you suspect that your great uncle was killed during the war: https://1914.svrt.ru/
There are other smaller lists available in Russian.

I am dismayed that anyone is even thinking of contacting a state organisation of that state in the light of the recent act of the recent international air piracy.

Several months ago, thanks, I think, to a Discussion Group posting, I located a record at the Russian site https://gwar.mil.ru/heroes/ indicating that my great uncle was wounded in 1914 at one of the first Russian-German battles of World War One. However, I’ve been unable to locate any additional information indicating his ultimate fate, that is, whether he survived or succumbed to his wound, his enlistment/draft record, etc. I contacted the Russian State Military History Archive, but was told they can’t help me. Any suggestions for other possible sources of information? (My great uncle was born in Vitebsk, then part of the Russian Empire, now in Belarus; family lore strongly suggests he died during World War On.)
