BohdaeAWADIWSKY Yaroslava PUflANSKA (Address: 438 East 9th Street, New York)
On 31 January Yaroslava TURANSKA returning to her home between 10:00 and 11:00 p.m. found in her doorway a calling card on which was written: Bohdan ZAWADIWSKY, Representative, Field Auditing Division, Metropolitian Life Insurance Company, New York. On the reverse side of this card the following was written: Miss TURANSKA, please telephone me at the Gramacy Park Hotel, Telephone GRamacy 5-4320, tomorrow between the hours of 9:00 and 11:00 and ask for room No. 1009. TURANSKA personally did not recognize the name Bohdan ZAWADIWSKY, but she recalled that her girlfriend Emma, who came to Germany in 1947 with members of the UPA from Poland, had married a man by the name of ZAWADIWSKY. Thinking that he might have a message for her from Emma, she called the number given to her on 1 February at 9:30 a.m. and agreed to meet ZAWADIWSKY in the National Home between 5:00 and 6:00. She arrived at 5:30 and saw two strangers, "Western type", in the corridor of the Ukrainian National Home. After a short .while the men left and Bohdan ZAWADIWSKY walked over to her. He invited her to go to the Ukrainian restaurant "Orkhidea" which is located across from the National Home and told her _ t he would like to speak to her alone. She had come with her boyfriend Ole r rikADIUK, so she asked himi (ZVADIUK) to wait for her. Bohdan ZAWADIWSKY confirmed the fact that he was the husband of Emma and that they now live in Chicago. During the conversation he proposed a trip to Europe and employment in the screening of escapees from the USSR, in particular those Ukrainians who would like to emigrate to America or Canada. If she agrees he will introduce her to another man, his chief. He told her that he belongs to a large group in which are employed many people, among which are Ukrainians known to her. He promised her a salary in Europe around $8,000 and housing. In answer to her question as to how he knew about her, ZAWADIWSKY answered • with the question, "Did you come to the United States legally?" When she said yes, he told her that he has seen all her papers and knows all there. is to know about her. ZAWADIWSKY told TURANSKA that if she agrees to accept this employment and go to Europe she would have to undergo a clearance and that he was not sure that she would be able to pass this because he, as well as his group, knows that three or four years ago she was visited by an acquaintance from Europe who is suspect, and also in January of this year during the Ukrainian Christmas season she was visited in her home by two individuals, one of which is suspect. He refused to give her the names of any of the individuals mentioned. He told her that he too had been offered this type of employment in Europe but he refused because he is married and that this type of work is not always pleasant. Besides this, he told her that one of the activities of his group is the clearance of those who want to emigrate to the United States or Canada to clear them for the future from becoming suspect of espionage activities. As for example, he told her that the brother oOKKAR, now living in N w York, is having difficulties because of his brother's redefection, or / /Ye LENSKY who is now in America and whose brother returned to the USSR and took with him many photographs which he himself made. NOTE: as to PETgNSKY, Rt.

ZAWADIWSKY is not telling the truth because the PELENSKY who is in the U. S. A. never had a brother. It is the brother of Zenon PELENSKY who is now working with Radio Liberation in Germany who returned to Poland in 1948. ZAWADIWSKY asked TURANSKA to think this over and to give him an answer in a week's time. He said he would be back in New York in one week and if she agrees he will then introduce her to another man, his chief. TURANSKA also is supposed to tell him at that time the names of anyone with whom she discussed this proposal and what their recommendation was. TURANSKA told him that she cannot give him an answer because in fact she does not know him and that she has no particular qualifications for this job. He recommended, however, that she think this over. Bohdan ZAWADIWSKY: About 30 years of age, short, full face, good looking,
dirty blond hair, likes to drink and talk a lot. Three or four years ago lived in the Bronx presently living in Chicago, has two or three children.
Yaroslava TURANSKA: Former member of the UPA, came to Germany in 1947 with a
group of UPA members. She belongs to the Organization of Former Members of UPA.
