Biography of Aleksandr Pomansky

Lived in Moscow and was a parishioner of the Russian [Eastern Rite] Catholic Church of the Nativity of the Most Holy Virgin Mary that met in the Abrikosovs’ quarters. In July 1928 he was arrested and sentenced to five (?) years in corrective labor camp. Fate thereafter unknown. We present an excerpt from the statements of [Mr. and Mrs.] Pomanky concerning the accused, Iraida Prudovskaya, at an interrogation on January 25, 1934: “They said that the Orthodox Church had fallen apart, that it had a number of conflicting tendencies that had weakened it. Speaking of the Eastern Rite of the Catholic Church, they showed that this Church could revive and unify the Orthodox Church, which had been destroyed after the revolution.” Source: Investigatory Matter A.I.
