  • Description

    no number... panning over the russian signal convey camping from main road nearly 130 vehicles I have seen.... later tried to make closer shots....but without tripod....very unsteady, bad position for me to stand...the farmer even removed a part of his roof to give me a view of the russians.....later from the other position the cars moving by...

    THIS IS THE CONVEY which left last night for USSR...the camp was filmed near PRESOV some 160 km from the USSR border... they left this place 11.00 and made several stops on the way......around 1?.00 they arrived 10 km from the border, here they stopped again and crossed the border during the night...

    situation on the border.... NBC,LIFE and Visnews was there ....
    correspondents speaking with czech policy and army....they told us that it is forbidden to photograph the convoy...

    all of us had to leave...there was no change... the whole place at the border, and near the convey, and our cars have been covered by russian and czech secret police, the police and the army.

    the first part of the film was filmed near PRESOV some 160 km from the border. Here the troops camped over night on a hill away from the main road.

    Later during the day the 120 vehicles moved towards the border and crossed over to the USSR during the night. Strong security measures have been taken, by the russian itself and the czech military, police and secret police to prevent foreign and local newsmen of taking photographs.
