Lomakin

The last witness of Counsellor Smirnov under the Russian presentation of the Offenses Against Civilians and Crimes Against Humanity was Rev. Nikolai Lomakin, a Russian Orthodox priest. He testified principally about the bombing of churches and other religious buildings in Leningrad during the time that city was surrounded by German forces. He noted that it was strange that the shellings intensified during feast days.
