  GrahamClayton: <myschkin>,
Another strong USSR player who died in the Great Patriotic War. I wonder how many unknown chess players died in the war that we know nothing about?

On a happier note, here is a nice miniature by Kaiev:

[Site "Moscow"]
[Date "1934.??.??"]
[Round "?"]
[White "Kaiev, Lev Alexeevich Kaiev"]
[Black "Kubbel, Arvid "]
