During some google search for Kurskaya Duga resources I've found very good russian website about soviet resistance movement/organization called 'Young guard' ('Molodaya gvardiya' on russian). Unfortunately this organization is very poor known in western countries - but in post-war USSR members of this organization became true heroes of young post-war generation.

I've found only 2 english language resources about it: Young Guard (Soviet resistance - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) and <font color=#e00000>Young Soviet Heroes Will Always Remain in People’s Memory</font> - Pravda.Ru, but here is that russian page I've mentioned before: Ñàéò "Ìîëîäàÿ Ãâàðäèÿ". Ìîëîäîãâàðäåéöû - it can be read thru google with some limitations.

From Wikipedia:
The official story of the group, including Fadeyev's book, has been questioned almost from the day that Krasnodon was liberated. Several researchers (both officially-sanctioned and independent) revealed ambiguities and anomalies in the versions of the story promoted by Fadeyev, the groups survivors, and the Communist Party. Some survivors and witnesses declared they were pressed to follow the official version of events until the end of Soviet era.

Several alternative versions emerged in late 1990s, the most exotic among them being the story of a Young Guard as Ukrainian nationalist (not Komsomol) organization.
The full true story of the Young Guard remains a mystery. For example, as of 2004 it is not known for certain who betrayed the Young Guard. The leadership of the organization, as mentioned above, has also been called into question.

From Pravda article:
Young Guards association was rather active during the entire time of the Nazi occupation in Ukraine’s Donbass (which is known for its rich coal fields). When fascists occupied the town of Krasnodon in July of 1942, there were several anti-fascist young groups formed there. The organization Young Guards was set up on October 2 of 1942, after the joint meeting between the leaders of all those youth organizations. Originally, the organization counted 91 people.

Young Guards did their best to prepare an armed rebellion. Young people wanted to achieve their major goal – to defeat the fascist garrison and to join the Soviet Army. This might have become real, if there wouldn’t have been a traitor to ruin the plans. The youth anti-fascist association was destroyed, but those people managed to do a lot anyway. Nazis sensed their presence everywhere. Young Guards hung Soviet flags all over their occupied town on the threshold of the 25th anniversary of the Great October Revolution. Young partisans helped concentration camp prisoners to escape, they burned a fascist labor exchange, which saved about two thousand Krasnodon residents from fascist slavery.

Thank you Laufer. Perhaps we need to study more on this, as the Pravda has become such a strange source in the last years.

IIRC, the difference between the Pravda (Truth) and the Isveztia (News) used to be that the Isveztia told nothing new, and the Pravda told only lies :D

Holy cow! They named an airplane after me!
