Russian museum discovers a secret government order to destroy files

The Soviet Union crumbled in 1989 under the weight of its own widespread socialist poverty, darkness and misery.

The Guardian is reporting that workers at the Gulag History Museum in Moscow have discovered that certain evidence of the darkest days of government control have disappeared.

Further inspection has uncovered a secret government order–apparently implemented by undercover government agents among the museum curators–directing that case files regarding the evils of mass slave camps be destroyed.
