In Brief ...
STANISLAV BONDARENKO, MIKHAIL FRENKEL
At one time Stalin's accomplices from NKVD (People's Commissariat of Internal Affairs) were searching for those digging tunnels to Bombay or London but failed to. Whereas a tunnel between Kiev and Tbilisi, rather, a canal between the Dnieper and Kura rivers was, indeed, dug out. One man alone - Raul Chilachava, did this. Due to him Georgia discovered practically all best Ukrainian poets, and Ukraine - tens of wonderful Georgian ones. He has written 70 books in half of which he presents himself as a translator-conductor, in the other half he is a poet - Georgian and Ukrainian.
