      The article is generally alright but there are issues. The crime is
      blamed on the Soviets in the first sentence.



      Seventy years ago, an estimated 22,000 Polish soldiers were executed by
      the Soviet Union's secret police, the NKVD, in the Katyn forest in
      Russia.



      Still this sentence is also misleading as I believe only around 4,500
      died at Katyn itself. The rest died elsewhere. It would be fair enough
      to 22,000 in the Katyn massacre as they are generally group together via
      that title but not say they died at Katyn.



      Anyway a member(s) may care to read the article and write a correction.
      Overall the article is basically telling the truth if a little
      misleading in my view.
