1. Tranamitted herewith is the remainder of the 1953 accountings for This dispatch it is believed, clears up all accounts to

Suchasna Ukraine. 1 Z anuarY 1954.

2, Field case officer transmits the funds, upon receipt of allotment from Headquarters, to AECASSOURY 3, who receipts therefor in accordance with procedures described in paragraph 1, referenda C.

3. The data in the enclosed reports show that the United States, Canada, Australia, Rngland, and Germany are the countries where the publication circulates most. Des pite politically inspired action against Suchasna Ukraina in England, circulation there is relatively strong, and there are prospects that distribution in that country will increase in 1954. Sweden shows an exceptionally high percentage of sales, considering that the total of Ukrainians in that country is less than 200 persons. Generally, sales are highest in those countries where AECALSOVIARY 1 has active political representation (U.S.A., Australia, Canada). L. In 1953 printing costs mounted in Germany, as evident in higher paper and printing charges. The data show clearly that KUBARK subsidy is the financial

backbone of the publication.

5. Reader reaction, as reflected by oral comment and by letters to the editor, is generally positive. Usually receiving favorable comment are the paper's high level, serious discussion of the problems of Communism, and special articles on national, economic, and bureaucratic-party processes in the USSR. Some readers with a law educational background complain of difficulty In understanding the publication. Negative comment stems primarily from England, There JUCAVATINA 6 emigre leaders attack the paper's so-called "left course" nd "deviation from nationalist positions." It is estimated that sixty per cent romairirlor f the nublication t s readers are or worker end peeszni% tve secondary or higher education. This estimate is based exclusively on Alysis of the way readers write to the editor, rather than on precise statistical ta. flUSIA:$$,IF I ED AND RELEASED BY 6t#f*4L IN TELLIGENCE AGENCY HillIMMEINTIO SEXEMPTION3B2D NAZI WAR CR IMES DISCLOSURE ACT PATE 2E17

6. Working contact between field case officer and the publication effected through XECASSO`APS 3 and 6 and 2L 497. These, mho guide the paper's policy to a considerable degree, constantly seek material shomin: an expanding community of American and Ukrainian interests in oeeasine; the USSR. The fielf case officer has followed a policy of suppl r ing any iten that ney serve to further American prestige and interests. The time required to obtain publication is usually three or four weeks and depends upon two factors-- the publication is a semi-monthly, and the necessity of putting the item in the hands of an English-reading expert mho has to process it for Ukrainian readers. 7. Sunhasna Ukraine. and DO Zbroyi have been asked to comment on varied items, as they happen to come to the attention of the field case officer. Among items recently treated are the following:- mrs. esta l s account of her 1953 trip in the USSR (Suchasna Ukraine, 1 Nov. 1953); Iliksche e s "Secret Forces," which presents a theory on underground movements (Do Ebroyi); New York Times stories on the national problem in the MR, especially - Schwartz and Cyrus L. Sulzberger, Jr. (Suchaana Ukraine, th-ar8T7iirtry 7 Aebrusm7, 1954); review of Hugh Seton-Watson's "astern Europe between the Ware,); Philip E. Mosely, The Kremlin's Foreign Policy since Stalin," Foreign Affairs, October, 1953 (Suchaena "ekraina, 27 December 1953); Jmles Burlinam, "'*hat Europe Thinks of America" (Suchasna Ukraine, 7 February 1954)1 Dusan Nveder, "Territorial War," Foreign A ffeirt, Octob er/ 1953 (Suchasna Ukraine, No. 1, Christmas Issue, 1954).

III. The year 1953 was characterized by little change in Circulation. paid subscriptions increased Primarily in Anglo-Saxon Countries. Circulation is weakest in the Latin countries generally because of poor organization and lack of adequate finances among emigres in those countries. A relatively large number of copies are given gratis in Germany, the Latin countries, and in England. It must be borne in mind that the number of readers is much greater than the number of paid and free subscribers. For wl-oare eifii&-eaa LLL cowpac;Lly LogaLher, the same copy is often read by 15 or 20 people.
