Svetlana stated that she was the daughter of Joseph Stalin by his second wife, Nadezhda Alliloueva, and that she was the "common law wife" of Brajesh Singh, an uncle of Dinesh Singh, who had been an employee of the Foreign Languages Publishing House in Moscow.

Alliluyeva was not a normal person but that there were distinct signs of mental disturbances in spite of which she was actually being exploited for concrete and definite political purposes.
