Meanwhile, the official statistics mentions about 30 thousand victims of Stalin’s repressions buried in Kurapaty, historian Ihar Kuznyatsou said. “Officially, at least 30 thousand people were buried in Kurapaty. However, some researches tend to think that the number reached 100 thousands, 150 thousands and even 250 thousands,” Kuznyatsou noted.

There are almost 20 places of mass execution and mass graves in Minsk and its outskirts. Kurapaty is only one of them, the historian said. The number of all the victims is about 200 thousand people.
