  • Description

    In Zambia, a planeload of Year of the Child gifts from the Soviet Union was unloaded on Friday (1 June).

    SYNOPSIS: The gifts are destined for children from Zimbabwe Rhodesia who are living in refugee camps in Zambia. Officials from the exiled Zimbabwe African People's Union unloaded the goods -- which the Soviet Union says are a demonstration of its solidarity with ZAPU and the Patriotic Front. The leader of the Soviet delegation spoke at Lusaka airport.

    A crate of gifts was handed over to ZAPU's Secretary for Manpower, Stephen Nkomo. The Soviet Ambassador to Zambia, Dr. Vasili Solodovnikov, was also present.
