WREN 1976 The New York Times MOSCOW The Soviet Union's most prominent imprisoned dissident, Vladimir K. Bukovsky, is being freed in exchange for the jailed Chilean Communist Party chief, Luis Corvalan, Bukovsky's mother reported yesterday. Nina I. Bukovsky said that two agents of the KGB security police appeared at her apartment Tuesday to inform her of the intended swap and ask whether she would cooperate. "I said I was willing because it would save two lives Corvalan's and my son's," the 56-year-old widow recounted as she sat among a half-dozen packed suitcases in her Moscow apartment. The KGB, she said, has since instructed her that Bukovsky will be brought this morning to a Moscow airport, where he will join his mother, sister and ill nephew and fly with them to Switzerland. He has been in Vladimir prison, East of Moscow, serving a seven-year sentence for anti-Soviet agitation. According to one diplomatic account, the United States had served as an intermediary in working out the unusual exchange of political prisoners. The Soviet Union and Chile severed diplomatic ties after a military coup toppled the Marxist regime of Salvador Allende in Sept. 1973. Though details were not available, the negotiations were believed to have quietly taken place at the United Nations or some other neutral site. A Soviet Foreign Ministry spokesman yesterday claimed no knowledge of the deal. But Latin American sources understood Corvalan would fly to Moscow today. If so, Corvalan would be a dramatic guest at the birthday celebration of the party chief Leonid I. Brezhnev, who turns 70 tomorrow. "Corvalan is a birthday present for Brezhnev," agreed one Russian dissident. The news came as a shock to diplomats here, who had discounted the likelihood of any such an exchange. Last month, the Chilean government offered to release the 60-year-old Corvalan, who has been held since the coup, if Moscow let Bukovsky and his mother leave for the West. The Soviet government seemed to dismiss the proposal as a propaganda ploy. There seemed to be no precedent in recent memory for the Soviet Union to barter political prisoners, though captured spies have been traded in the past. It was not known why Moscow had agreed to the deal, which could open it up to pressure for the exchange of other political prisoners, unless it was felt that the release of Corvalan would enhance Brezhnev's stature in the Communist world. Bukovsky's role in the affair was expected to be downplayed or ignored altogether in the publicity given Corvalan's release. Moscow has contended that it has no political prisoners, although activities considered anti-Soviet are subject to criminal prosecution. The human rights organization, Amnesty International, estimated in its report last year that up to 10,000 political and religious "prisoners of conscience" were incarcerated in Soviet prisons, labor camps and mental institutions. Mrs. Bukovsky, a pleasant graying woman, suggested that "I think it is only because they want to free Luis Corvalan. If there were not such an exchange, they wouldn't free my son." But she also credited public pressure from the West with having promoted her son's release. Bukovsky, by one friend's reckoning, has already spent 11 of his 33 years a third of his life in Soviet jails and mental institutions for dissident activities. When Mrs. Bukovsky visited him in prison last August, she said she found him, "terribly emaciated, like a concentration camp victim." Word of his ill health sparked a Western drive for his release that was joined by some Western European Communists. At the same time, the Soviet Union led a Communist campaign to free Corvalan, who was also reported in poor health. j76 the - ry i "Don't let my Dad's sideburns and flared jeans fool you. He's not really with it!" Goldwater Appeals For Aid To Mexico PHOENIX (AP) Sen. Barry Goldwater, R-Ariz., asked President Ford yesterday to give financial aid to Mexico as one of his last official acts. ". . . A matter of $50 million to Mexico could have saved the peso and we ignored it," Goldwater said in a letter to the White House. "Now their peso is in trou ble and we cannot allow her to be economically hurt." The peso has been "floated" on the world money market twice since Sept. 1, and its value has been cut in half. Goldwater urged Ford "from the bottom of my heart as one of your last actions as President to offer Mexico what money she needs." W Jv' 1 ' If i1 A h I1.
