Summary/Abstract: The author comments on the correlation between the revision of archival collections, the reevaluation of archival documents from the socialist period, and new interpretations of past events. Revising archival collections should help make it possible to conduct a realistic and scientifically-based study of the past. This was impossible in the past because political-ideological and subjective assessments of historical documents compromised the work of researchers, who were given incomplete information and thus could not construct objective accounts of past events.
