I need more on the source of this quotation from Peteraitis: Die Ortsnamen von Kleinlitauen und Twangste (on Tomas' Kleinlitauen site)
"Sie haben solche künstlich slawisierten baltischen Namen dazu benutzt, den Regierungen des Westens vorzuschwindeln, daß die Region von Kaliningrad „aus uralten slawischen Ländern des Vorbaltikums“ zusammengesetzt sei (Großrussische Enzyklopädie von 1953)."
It's about the Bolshewiks claiming East-Prussia as old Slavic Land. What is the exact name of the encyclopedia? Did it express the "official" view under Stalin? What time is meant by "Vorbaltikum" (pre-Baltic age)?
Lutz Szemkus

I think this view is somehow related with ethymology of the name "prussia" itself
