sorry ade ,and thanks
It is a large Communist Party Membership Identification Book, #18860553. These came in two sizes, large and small, and I am always amazed at their beautiful calligraphy. I have attached another example of both the large and small for Ivan Fedorovich Mozula for purposes of comparison. (He was a KGB Officer.) Note how the serial number is the same in both the large and small editions.
What little I can tell you is that Lubomir Volodimirovich Boyko, was a male, born 1947, in the Kozlov Bussk Region, L’viv (Lvov) Oblast Ukraine SSR. His nationality is Ukrainian, as is his native language. He was a member of the VLKSM, or Komsomol (All-Union Leninist Young Communist League) a youth organization controlled by the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1963, at the age of 16, until 1975, when he would have been 18. He became a member of the Communist Party in July, 1978, at the age of 21, first as a “candidate” by the Bussky District Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine, L’viv Oblast, and later as a “member” in August, 1978, again by the same organization.
On the next page we see his photograph and the date of issue for the identification book, September 25th, 1979. Additional information includes his acceptance of the party’s card, #03758321 and further resolution regarding his membership by the bureau of the aforementioned organization, order #11, on August 28th, 1979. There is a section on his level of education, and that he attended school in L’viv in 1971 where he studied railway transportation.
I am sure other forum members more literate who will be able to fill in the obvious blanks of my presentation.
