       On signing   the  Convention  relative  to  the  Treatment  of
   Prisoners of War,  the Government of the Union of Soviet Socialist
   Republics makes the following reservations:
       Article 10:  "The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics will not
   recognize  the  validity  of  requests by the Detaining Power to a
   neutral State or to a humanitarian organization,  to undertake the
   functions  performed by a Protecting Power,  unless the consent of
   the Government of the country of which the prisoners  of  war  are
   nationals has been obtained."
       Article 12:  "The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics does not
   consider  as  valid  the  freeing of a Detaining Power,  which has
   transferred prisoners of war to another Power, from responsibility
   for  the  application  of  the Convention to such prisoners of war
   while the latter are in the custody of the Power accepting them."
       Article 85:  "The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics does not
   consider itself  bound  by  the  obligation,  which  follows  from
   Article  85,  to  extend  the  application  of  the  Convention to
   prisoners of war who have been convicted  under  the  law  of  the
   Detaining   Power,  in  accordance  with  the  principles  of  the
   Nuremberg trial,  for war crimes and crimes against  humanity,  it
   being  understood  that  persons  convicted of such crimes must be
   subject to the conditions obtaining in the country in question for
   those who undergo their punishment."
