To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Status: O FYI - Some of you might be interested to know that Apple created a bunch of System 7 clones for different languages, including Irish Gaelic and Russian. I don't know for sure, but my understanding is that it is not GA software at this time in this country. It arrived on "Apple Developer Group Developer CD Series January 1994 System Software edition". Along with that there is a "System folder picker", which allows you to have several System Folders, and "pick" any of them for the restart. Russian system includes several True Type (i.e. smooth) russian fonts, and a facility to choose Russian or US keyboard. Translations are not perfect - "Desktop" is "Stol", and "Double click speed" is "Zazor dvoinogo schelchka". I haven't played with it too much, but the resulting mixture of languges seems to me rather annoying - since current applications don't support this multicultural effort. Anyway, it can be useful for somebody (I'm going to install Irish Gaelic on my collegue's Quadra while he is revelling in his Ireland). Have fun and Happy New Years and Xmases!

Peyrard (ENS Lyon), M. Barthes (University of Montpellier), G. Careri (University of Rome), P. Christiansen (Technical University of Denmark, Lyngby), J. Krumhansl (Cornell and University of Massachusetts), C. Reiss (Institut Jacques Monod, Paris), A.C. Scott (University of Tucson and Technical University of Denmark), G. Tsironis (Research Center and University of Crete) In the last few years, many attempts have been made to use ideas coming from nonlinear physics (solitons, nonlinear energy localization for instance) to model some biological processes like energy storage and transport in proteins, DNA conformational changes and thermal denaturation, etc. Nonlinear excitations, which are exceptionally stable, immune to perturbations and build-up spontaneously in many systems, appear as interesting candidates to explain some of these molecular processes. However, although they are promising, current physical models need further developments and experimental testing before they can be used to solve actual problems encountered in biology. This cannot be achieved without a close cooperation between theoretical and experimental physicists and biologists. The aim of the workshop is to bring together PHYSICISTS AND BIOLOGISTS to identify the problems in which nonlinear physics could contribute to biology in a relevant manner. Therefore, in addition to the presentation of recent research results, the conference will be organized around long lectures in each field, in order to introduce the important notions and stimulate discussions. Invited lecturers for these tutorials include A.R. Bishop (Los Alamos), H. Frauenfelder (Urbana-Champaign and Los Alamos), A. Garcia (Los Alamos), J. Krumhansl (Cornell and University of Massachusetts), R. Lavery (Paris), W. Mentele (Freiburg), C. Reiss (Paris), A.C. Scott (Tucson and Lyngby) Les Houches is a resort village in the Chamonix valley of the french Alps. Established in 1951, the school is located in a group of mountain chalets surrounded by meadows and woods at 1000 m elevation. It is ideally located for mountaineering or touring as well as intellectual pursuits. In an effort to favor concentrated discussions and lively interactions, the number of participants will be limited to approximately 40 and we hope to have a good balance between physicists and biologists. The fee of 3400 FF will cover registration and full board lodging during the school. Grants to contribute to registration, travel and subsistence expenses of young researchers of the European Union through the Euroconference programme will be available. The deadline for receiving the final application for support is February 15, 1994. Interested researchers are urged to enquire as soon as possible for the application forms.

Our esteemed Don Alejandro Nalpak sent me a note suggesting that that earthquake is a test of new Russian weapon announced recently by Mr. Zhirinovsky and launched by Russ-military as a revenge for Mr. Clinton's refusal to meet him while in Moscow. Who knows; the crazy hidalgo has been right sometimes...:-) Anyway, those of you guys who've got a first-hand experience with that earthquake, please send us your reports. And let the luck be with you as well as with the rest of Californians; stay in one piece. In a short while I am going to broadcast a few IR-postings that accumulated while I've been away.

I believe you will choose the future. After all, RUSSIA DID NOT GET TO THIS POINT BY MAKING ALL THAT MANY WRONG DECISIONS IN THE PAST. And every nation makes A FEW MISTAKES. There are few people anywhere that have more knowledge of history, both positive and negative, that have more reason to hope for the future than you do.

Ne vse kotu maslennitsa. It cannot be so that somebody is in cold blizard weather and others are only enjoying the sun and blue (well, somewhat hazy) sky. 6.6 is no fun, that's right. You probably know details from TV. In short, we were very, very lucky that it hit during the night (4:31 am). Otherwise the number of killed would have easily been in thousands. Several multi-layer (5-6 stores) parking structures near major shopping malls completely flattened. Roofs of a couple of major department stortes collapsed. And several freeway crossings and bridges would have turned usually speeding motorists in a bloody mess. Thanks Almighty, it was early in the morning. (Death toll as it stands now - 33). Practical consequences are no power, no gas, no hot water in some areas (it is patchy geography) for next few days-two weeks. Several freeways are closed. I remember how I cursed every time when I visited San Francisco and tried to go through detours to get around destroyed (by erathquacke in 1989) parts of freeways in Oakland/Berkeley. L.A. is no San Francisco (even our numerous pinky liberals rarely ride share or use public transport:-) - we will have this pain in the neck at full. Aftershocks are continuing all the time (they are expected to continue for a week or two). Some statistics: during 24 hours after the quake there we more than 100 (!) shocks stronger than 3.0 (Richter scale) and more than a dozen stronger than 4.0. Three were stronger than five. It is a typical pattern for the major quake. It is trembling all the time, so I was awaken during this night maybe 10-15 times. The good thing is that with the passage of time the probability that this 6.6 jolt was actually a PRESHOCK of the really BIG (>8.0) one decreases exponentially. So, it looks that the worst is behind. My apartment was probably typical (I live 15 miles from the epicenter in Santa MOnica): everything unsecured fell down (TV set, computer, book shelf, glasses, plates, .... ) It was quite a mess. Actually these objects did not allow me to get out of my apartment in the dark until everything was over. I found quickly the flashlight (I have my backpack fully packed because of ocasional mountain hikes) and with couple of neighbors we turned off gas and water for the whole apartment house. And then we were just "socializing" for couple hours. 200 m from us fire destroyed apartment building but firefighters were able to prevent the fire from spreading. They were doing their job very professionally and there was no opportunity to help them. It looks like all for today. Many folks stayed at home today. We will clean the mess and soon (I have it already) smiles will be again on our faces.

Best, --Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator ------------------------------------------------------------------- Dear netters: Does anybody have an experience of being here on a student (F-1) visa and being called for an interview to Moscow for refugee status at the same time? Is it possible to return here with a student entry visa after the interview, in order to avoid termination of study? Is it easier to get such a visa in a third country than in Russia? I`ll appreciate any advices and suggestions. Please reply directly to me: alexschw@eng.umd.edu Thank you in advance.

This is brand new and has a lot of 'growing up' to do. But we are very hopeful of ideas and contributions from the members of this list. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Friends and Partners >From Russia and from America comes a new information service called "Friends and Partners" -- one of the first information systems jointly developed by citizens of these two nations. It is hoped that it will contribute towards better understanding between our nations by providing instruction on our countries and cultures, by providing a common base of information about issues affecting relations between our countries, and by providing a common 'meeting place' where folks can find and communicate with each other. If you wish to visit, the following uniform resource locator (URL) will allow you to connect to the World Wide Web server: http://solar.rtd.utk.edu/friends/home.html At the moment, it is more a 'framework' of an information system -- more 'heart' than substance. The goal is to help others build upon the framework -- to create and link together information on our nation's histories; our art, music, literature, and religion; our educational and scientific resources; our geography and natural resources, our languages; and our opportunities for communicating, travelling, and working together. The 'end product' -- an evolving and continually changing information resource -- should be useful to many and will hopefully help bridge the gap of understanding that exists between our nations. It will hopefully also demonstrate the potential for good that exists with this wonderfully chaotic, global resource we call the Internet. What are the potential uses? Scientists should be able to use the service to find information about funding opportunities and exchange programs, access various databases and library resources, and locate potential colleagues and co-workers. Teachers and educators at all levels should be able to find and contribute interesting and up-to-date material to assist in their instruction -- making their courses more 'alive' and more pertinent to real world issues. Folks in business should be able to learn about the economic environment and opportunities in both countries as well as the rules and laws pertaining to conducting business. Artists from all fields (and their patrons) should be able to learn about, meet and work with each other. And people from all walks of life should be able to learn more about these two nations -- so closed off from one another for so many years. The primary motivation of this service is to help introduce new friendships and partnerships between our peoples. It hopes to build upon the excellent work already being accomplished by our governments and by the various groups, centers, and institutes who have been working for so many years towards this same goal of cooperation and friendship. Perhaps the only difference from other efforts is the intention to use the World Wide Web on the Internet as the method of communicating information. The World Wide Web was chosen because of its ability to handle mixed media (text, graphics, audio, etc.), the excellent graphic and non-graphic browsers available for free on the Internet, and its ability to 'integrate' information from all of the best Internet-based tools and utilities -- Listservers, Gophers, WAIS indexes, FTP archives, etc. If you do not have a WWW browser, you can use our 'friends' account. Telnet to solar.rtd.utk.edu. At the login: prompt, enter friends and press return (make sure to enter friends in all lower case). This will place you in a non-graphic WWW browser called 'Lynx' (on-line help is available). (Note: you must be emulating a vt100 terminal to use this method of access.) We will soon be providing a 'mirror' of this server in Pushchino, Russia (near Moscow) on the computer of co-developer Natasha Bulashova. This will be perhaps the first information system of its kind in Russia. One of the most exciting developments underway in Pushchino is the development of a 'virtual network' of biological sciences information. This is being designed to be a global information resource on biological sciences research and will be offered soon as a part of this overall service. Efforts will soon begin to establish both servers in Russian and English languages. We have established an electronic mailing list (listserver) to help facilitate communication for this project. Please feel most free to join by sending a message to listproc@solar.rtd.utk.edu with the following text: SUBSCRIBE FRIENDS Your name This is a moderated list with which one 'digest' of all postings will be sent to subscribers each day. Please send us your comments, criticisms, suggestions (and offers of help! :-) ). Natasha Bulashova Greg Cole Pushchino, Moscow Region Knoxville, Tennessee Russia USA natasha@ibpm.serpukhov.su gcole@solar.rtd.utk.edu P.S. We hope to quickly broaden the scope of this server to incorporate information and communication with all of the newly independent states of the former Soviet Union. The information content of this server must reflect a much larger constituency than just our two nations and we should work towards that end.

Life is becoming more and more normal (e.g. my neighbor said to me this morning that it was the first night he slept during last five days), although curfew is still in place (from 11 pm to dawn, a difference from dusk to dawn in the beginning). Following the text-book pattern, a sequence of aftershocks continues. Sometime, pretty big shocks as two 5.2 shocks yesterday. But they are becoming less and less frequent with time. Practically all big companies resumed their work. UCLA has completely opened this morning; USC was open all the time, although night clases are cancelled because of curfew. CalState Northridge, very close to the epicenter, suffered large structural damage and is closed until next week. It will require substantial repairs on campus. Many schools were badly hit and all of them are closed until next week. Damage assessment is in progress and it is believed that about 200 of 2000 scholls of the LA Unified School District (second largest in the nation) will remain closed for major repairs for couple months. Problems with damaged freeways are seriously affecting life of many commuters (which is equivalent in LA to people. Do not forget that two persons in a car is a carpool in LA and eligible for diamond bar lane on freeways, compared to 3 in S.F. or 4 in D.C.). It will take a week or so for new traffic pattern to emerge while we will be trying ti find optimal routes to get to places. Death toll stands now at 47; among them 8 heart attacks attributed by the coroner's office to the quake. Damage estimates vary from 7 B$ to 30 B$ (B = billion) (for comparison California's budget is 55 B$/year or ATT's annual revenues are 22 B$). About 50 thousand (including my apartment complex) residences do not have natural gas which often means also no hot water. In some areas there are still no power and water (it will take up to two weeks more to fix it); water is required to be boiled everywhere. There are still some glitches in telephone networks; many people from outside could not reach LA and within LA, from some areas you cannot get connections to certain ares. People are assessing their losses. Cosmetic damage to building is extensive and widespread (i.e. chimneys, attics, staircases, brick fences, gargouilles, etc. - what is called in Russian 'malye arkhitekturnye formy'). My neighbor had 60 crystal glasses - only 3 are left. I was lucky: my TV set fell down on the (rolled out a moment earlier) bottle of Metaxa (Greek 'anisovyi' liquer) and smashed it by its screen. Carpet smell terrible (or terrific :-) ! ). Many people lost their chinas, vases, acquariums, plates, windows. Many shop windows are broken. At Wilshire (main street in LA) in Santa Monica and at posh Montana street evry fourth/fifth shop window was broken. A famous Santa Monica Promenade was virtually trashed by heaps of bricks and plaster, but supprisingly not much of the structural damage. Although it depended on the particular buildings. For example, an apartment complex (about 20 units, incidentally owned by a Russian and with 100 % Russian tenants - you should have paid some undertable because of rent control) 30 meters from my house was ordered to be evacuated because of structural damage. So, it is almost behind us as always, in the Great State of California we are poised again for thriving (not surviving only). Actually the quake may worsen our economy. The real estate morket, badly hit by recession and economy slump, was showing some signs of life recently. The quake will definitely bring it to a standstill for a month and many deals, even in escrow, will be reversed. Anyway, if Paris had not already had it a sits motto (on a coat of arms) - FLVCTVAT NEC MERGITVR (beaten by waves but afloat), LA would have qualified for it, very easily.

The trial of the scientist Vil Mirzayanov opened in Moscow on 24 January, according to Russian TV newscasts and news agencies. Mirzayanov was detained by the Ministry of Security in the fall of 1992 on the charge of disclosing state secrets. Writing in Baltimore's The Sun, as well as in the liberal Russian weeklies Moscow News and New Times, Mirzayanov had claimed that Russia was working on a nerve gas ten times as deadly as a similar US weapon, and that the chemical in question had been tested after President Yeltsin said during his state visit to Washington in January 1992 that his country would stick to a US-Soviet agreement on nonproliferation of chemical and biological weapons. At his trial, "Vesti" reported, Mirzayanov refused to cooperate with the court, stating that putting him on trial was unconstitutional. ... The trial is being held behind closed doors because, the prosecution claims, the case involves many top secret documents.

Unless, of course it is dismissed. Dr. Uglev, who was one of the chief chemical weapons designers, corroborated Vil Mirzayanov's allegations last year, by his own revelations in the press. Though an investigation has been initiated against Uglev (for revealing state secrets), no charges had been filed because he had deputy's immunity as an elected official. Last week, Dr. Uglev publicly threatened to release to the press on Feb. 4th, the formulas of chemical weapons and describe how they are made, unless he was able to meet with President Yeltsin to discuss chemical weapons disarmament. This threat received a negative reaction from many people in Russia and abroad. On Saturday 29 January, Dr. Uglev met with Mr. Yuri Baturin, the new Russian National Security Advisor, who is considered a reform-minded individual. Tonight at 9 PM Moscow time, during a weekly news review program, this meeting was mentioned. They discussed Uglev's request that the case against Vil Mirzayanov be dismissed, as well as Russia's chemical weapons destruction program. During the program, it was reported that an anonymous senior Russian administration official stated that in his opinion, the case might be dropped during the coming week. Some letters of support were shown on Russian TV. While attorney Asnis was pleased with articles in the foreign press and in publications such as Izvestiya and Moscow News, he is concerned about some recent negative articles in Russia. NOTE: The following was sent to us by Dima Litvinov of the Greenpeace Moscow office. Izvestiya 29 January 1994 Editorial Opinion "The Mirzayanov Case: Stupidity of the Authorities or the Establishment of Despotic Power The Vil Mirzayanov case is well known - it has been written about by both the Russian as well as the world press for nearly two years. He is a scientist/chemist who has taken a humanitarian and brave step, and he has been accused of revealing state secrets. A court case has been started, the machine of "justice" has been started up. However it has been clear to everyone for a long time that behind this case there are no grounds, just emptiness. First of all, there is no legitimate law which was broken by Mirzayanov - secret decisions are not laws. Second, that which has been revealed has long ago ceased being a state secret. Finally, even the entity which has made the accusation, does not exist by itself - the Ministry of Security [KGB]. Nonetheless, the machine, once started up, keeps on spinning, and for Mr. Mirzayanov it is not idling. The Moscow Municipal Court has issued a warrant for the arrest of the accused and for his forced appearance in court. Today the scientist is in prison. Mirzayanov has stated from the beginning that he will not make statements to the court, as is his right. Then he stated that he will not come to the court at all - he does not have a right to do that. Therefore the decision of the Moscow Municipal Court can be seen as legally justified because both law and the court must be respected. However, there is a moral legal axiom: whoever is on the side of justice - has the right to be firm. The judges cannot understand the stupidity of their actions, not only that, they cannot understand the basis of the Mirzayanov case. At least, they continue it Why? What for? There are a number of different answers to this question, that have as a rule, concrete characteristics which are based on the materials of the case. Let's try to abstract ourselves from the concreteness of the case and take a look at the events from a philosophical point of view. From the point of view of the philosophy of power. No, it would be too simple to explain everything by pure thickheadedness of the authorities or by the fact that once a machine has been started up it should not be stopped. Everything is much more complex. The despotic power affirms itself, not on reasonable firmness, and not even on the idea that the goal justifies the means, and not on the idea that that which is good for the rulers is moral. The despotism is founded on absurdity which has been brought into law. Let the "Mirzayanov case" be one example. Let us suppose that we do not see a subjective goal of confirming justice in one particular case. Nonetheless, objectively, it is precisely this line which we can conclude: the justification of senselessness as a principal. Is this too bold a supposition? Possibly. However, each fact - points in this direction. Naturally a question arises: if someone wants to affirm the despotic basis of power, who is doing that? The President? The government? The military-industrial complex? It is doubtful that we can know who is this concrete "somebody". Nevertheless, we cannot help but state the fact that the absurd case is continuing along a well-formed Soviet prosecutorial practice. In the "Mirzayanov case" there was doubt about the actual commission of a crime, according to all current laws, no crime has been committed. Nevertheless, the absurdity continues. But is it only absurdity? In recent times there have been too many steps taken by the authorities that cannot be understood by society. There is an impression that a challenge is being given tot he people. The press is sounding the alarm, but its voice is not heard. Not one of the officials has answered the questions [that have been raised] in connection with the "Mirzayanov case". Why not? It's up to the 4th estate to determine who and what is behind the case. It would be good if we found a concrete individual that it should be addressed to. Most probably, this individual will not be found. And then the supposition about the movement of power towards despotism will be confirmed." # # # Please look for an article in the Tuesday, Feb. 1 issue of the Wall Street Journal, about the case by J. Michael Waller.

In a letter published in Sovetskaya Rossiya on 3 February, the biologist Professor A. Akifev said that the pure sciences in Russia today are plagued by three problems: first, state funding for scientific research has been pared to the bone; secondly, researchers are working in a vacuum since subscriptions to almost all Western scientific periodicals were canceled in 1993; thirdly, the average salary of a head of a scientific laboratory or institute is now only 65,000 rubles a month. This puts scientists' salaries only slightly above the official subsistence level of 50,000 rubles a month. In fact, about a quarter of the Russian population now lives below that level, according to Izvestiya of 5 February.

A senior administration official reportedly said that there was "no sense of alarm or concern" in Washington, however, and pointed out that national security adviser Anthony Lake had spoken with his Russian counterpart, as had American UN ambassador Madeleine Albright, and that James F.

E'ta novost' soobsqaetsya vo vseh programmah po radio i TV, ob e'tom pishut prakticheski vse gazety (dazhe e'roti- cheskie), ob e'tom govoryat v metro, na rabote, po telefonu. Na- vernoe, v vojnu vot tak lyudi interesovalis' "Svodkami Inform- byuro". Yavlenie e'to unikal'noe i trudnoob`yasnimoe, hotya by po- tomu, chto u bol'shej chasti naseleniya dollarov nikakih netu.

Kak v derevnyah - ne znayu, no v provincial'nyh gorodah stol' zhe zhivoj, v bol'shej chasti akademicheskij, interes k obmennomu kursu, ya znayu, nablyu- daetsya. Kak my doshli do zhizni takoj? Ochen' prosto. Vystupaet, naprimer, nash vice-prem'er pered takim e'konomicheski podkovan- nym naseleniem s ocherednym zanudstvom: "My indeksiruem pensii i zarplaty gossluzhasqim. My boremsya za to, chtoby debetovoe sal'do byudzheta ne prevysilo 10% valovogo dohoda, t.k. ne mozhem dopustit' obescenivaniya sberezhenij trudyasqihsya". (Horosho imet' naselenie s pogolovnym srednim obrazovaniem.) I hotya v sbere- zheniya u trudyasqihsya naproch' otsutstvuyut, kazhdyj davno reshil dlya sebya zagadku pravitel'stva.

I vybirali my ego esqe pod dejstviem kommunisticheskogo soznaniya, i zaslonyali oni soboj v yasqike, slezotochivye meksikanskie serialy, i razda- vali dragocennye byudzhetnye den'gi vsyakim pensioneram i byudzhet- nikam. Zato byl bol'shoj plyus. Pravitel'stvu ne nuzhno bylo lo- mat' golovu: chego zhe vse tak ploho? Iz-za nih, iz-za deputa- tov. Takoe protivostoyanie obeim vetvyam vlasti bylo na ruku. Vzaimnye napadki to obostryalis', to tleli. Poe'tomu, kogda El'- cynu vzdumalos' uprazdnit' Verh.Sovet, e'to bylo neozhidannost'yu dlya vseh, navernoe, i dlya nego samogo. Dal'she vse izvestno: deputaty zaperlis', demokraty razvyazali kanalizacionno-e'lekt- richeskuyu vojnu (perekryli deputatam i to i drugoe). Pered obaldevshimi grazhdanami vstal vopros: to li i vpryam' v Belom Dome odni urody, to li "slabyh b'yut". Kogda odin iz nanajcev na glazah u izumlennoj publiki prikonchil vtorogo, kovernyj ob`yavil antrakt do 15 noyabrya; oba nanajca poklonilis' i ushli za kulisy, a vot zritelyam dostalos'. Skol'ko narodu perestre- lyali u Belogo doma i Ostankino nikto tochno ne znaet (po raznym ocenkam ot 300 do 1500). Ne samogo plohogo naroda - e'to te, kto poshel za slabyh. Moi vpechatleniya ot pervogo akta. Vse ochen' napominalo av- gust 1991 g. El'cinskoe TV brosilos' rasskazyvat' o dostizheni- yah ministrov-demokratov. Govorilos', chto net zhelayusqih zasqisqat' Belyj Dom, a esli i krutitsya tam kto, to e'to 1000 klinicheskih kommunistov, vooruzhennyh banditov i prochih p'yanic-alkogoli- kov. Nu gde esqe mozhno uvidet' takuyu kompaniyu? Vot ya i poshel iz lyubopytstva. Pogoda byla otvratitel'naya, morosil dozhdik, pri +4 grad. Belyj Dom byl otceplen soldatami, pereodetymi v formu milicejskogo specnaza. Ne byvaet brityh milicionerov; e'to kak vo vremya moskovskoj olimpiady polovina publiki na tribunah - britye, v odinakovyh novyh sportivnyh kostyumah (navernoe, i kostyumy u nih potom zabrali). Vdol' e'togo ocepleniya brodili vpolne intelligentnogo vida grazhdane, pytayas' proniknut' vnutr'. Po moim prikidkam pered kol'com ocepleniya bylo ok.15000 chel. (kol'co dovol'no shirokoe, nachinalos' u st.metro Barrikadnaya i proryvayusqiesya k Belomu Domu rassredotochilis' pochti ravnomerno, obrazovyvaya tolpu primerno v 5-10 sloev). Postoyav chas, ya tam uvidel neskol'ko sovershenno udruchayusqih scen. Zhensqina let 50 podoshla k soldatu i stala ugovarivat', chtoby ee propustili, t.k. u nee tam syn bez edy i teploj odezh- dy. Soldat bez vsyakogo vyrazheniya zloby na lice paru raz so vsego mahu ogrel ee rezinovoj dubinkoj po golove. Zhensqina upa- la, narod brosilsya ee podnimat' i ottaskivat'. Zheleznye zago- rodki, kotorye ran'she stavili u univermagov pri rasprodazhah, razdvigali tol'ko dlya togo chtoby propustit' vyhodyasqih iz ocep- leniya. Im prepyatstvij po-moemu ne chinili. V takie momenty de- monstranty pytalis' vospol'zovat'sya obrazovavshejsya bresh'yu i dazhe nekotorye proryvalis' - vot togda mozhno bylo posmotret', kak uchili soldat vnutrennih vojsk obrasqat'sya s protivnikom. P'yanyh ya ne videl, banditov (ih po kachkovym figuram i fiziono- miyam vidno srazu) tozhe, vot krasnye flagi byli, vrat' ne budu. Vernulsya domoj, vklyuchil TV i vse to zhe samoe: v pereryvah mezh- du horoshimi fil'mami govoryat o tysyache kommunistov-piketchikov. .......................................... Kogda dym rasseyalsya, zhelayusqih uchastvovat' vo vtorom akte prezidentskogo spektaklya poubavilos', na vybory prishli 51% iz- biratelej (50% byl porog). Za kogo predlagalos' golosovat'? 4 partii demokratov, razmnozhivshihsya pered vyborami vegetativnym sposobom, demokraticheskaya partiya Travkina (ee ya ne otnoshu k predydusqim iz-za specificheskogo ponimaniya demokratii e'timi che- tyr'mya), kommunisty, patrioty Zhirinovskogo i vsyakie partii ze- lenyh, molodezhi i zasqity detstva, materinstva i devichestva.

But those familiar with Moscow underground life know the real meaning. The station, packed day and night with commuters, long-distance travelers, beggars and invalids, is a center of Moscow's flourishing drugs trade. Its small group of mutes are among the biggest dealers. ``Marijuana, opium, hashish -- they have anything you need to get stoned. Prices are high, but the stuff is always available,'' said Alexei, a 20-year-old Moscow University student. Drugs were strictly forbidden in the Soviet era, when they were described in official propaganda as a scourge of the capitalist West. Now they are recognized as a problem in Russia. Officials counted 53,000 drug-related crimes in Russia in 1993, up from 29,000 in 1992 and 16,000 in 1985. ``Addiction disappears under totalitarian rule,'' said Arkady Kuznetsov, head of the Interior Ministry's anti-drugs department. ``Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini annihilated drug-taking by sending all drug dealers to jail. Now it is everywhere.'' Kuznetsov said the scale of drug abuse in Russia could not be compared to that in the West but it was a serious problem. ``It's no wonder. Around 2.5 million acres of land in Russia are covered with wild cannabis, and 2.5 acres yields around one ton of hashish. The calculations are very simple,'' he said. Almost half the cannabis and opium available in Moscow comes from the former Soviet republics of Georgia, Ukraine, Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan. Kuznetsov said Russia was the only country in the world where consumption of drugs -- as opposed to selling them -- was not a criminal offense. President Boris Yeltsin lifted a ban on drug consumption in 1991. A poll published two years ago by the Education Ministry showed 1.5 million of Russia's 150 million population were taking drugs. ``I do not believe these figures too much,'' Kuznetsov said. ``Two years ago people were too afraid of saying they had ever tried the stuff. Besides, the number of addicts has grown considerably over two years,'' he added. ``Moscow has become quite a cool place. Everything you ever heard about is on sale here -- LSD, crack, heroin and even magic mushrooms,'' said Dmitry, 26, a bearded painter. Opium is sold in straw form which can be boiled in acetone to create a heroin-like substance which users inject. ``Russia has always been a special country and it has specialities in the field of drug production,'' said Kuznetsov. ``The most dangerous are synthetic drugs, like trimethylfentonil, a synthetic heroin.'' He said many Russian chemists, unemployed or struggling to survive on $20 per month, were involved in underground production of synthetic drugs to make ends meet. ``Many of them have bright brains, so they use them.'' Synthetic heroin is called ``glass'' in street slang, because one of its chemical components is used in armored glass. Kuznetsov said only two countries -- the United States and Russia -- were producing this ``second generation'' drug. Five grams of ``glass,'' dissolved in two gallons of water, is enough for 2,000 fixes. The Interior Ministry also has to combat Russia's new, wealthy drug-using elite. ``They are mostly pop stars, people in the arts and businessmen. They have plenty of dough but nothing to do (so they) just look for some new entertainment,'' said Kuznetsov. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Mon Feb 14 13:57:36 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from mailgate.prod.aol.net by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA04848; Mon, 14 Feb 94 13:57:35 -0500 Received: by mailgate.prod.aol.net (1.37.109.4/16.2) id AA04400; Mon, 14 Feb 94 14:02:54 -0500 From: farizrza@aol.com X-Mailer: America Online Mailer Sender: "farizrza" Message-Id: <9402141402.tn35764@aol.com> To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Date: Mon, 14 Feb 94 14:02:53 EST Subject: INFO-RUSS: Am.

The Moscow City Court has ruled that Vil Mirzayanov, the Russian scientist accused of betraying state secrets concerning the production of Soviet chemical weapons, must remain in jail while a fresh investigation is conducted into the charges against him, ITAR-TASS reported on 14 February. Mirzayanov argues that the case against him is unconstitutional since the list of state secrets itself remains classified. Meanwhile, Boris Yeltsin has issued a decree identifying 38 federal bodies which have the right to classify information as a state secret, ITAR-TASS reported on 13 February. They include the Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Internal Affairs, Nuclear Power, Economy, Finance, and Civil Defense, as well as the law enforcement and security agencies. The publication of Yeltsin's decree may signify an attempt on the part of the President to distance his administration from the Mirzayanov case. Victor Yasmann, RFE/RL, Inc. Zhirinovsky's faction in the Duma proposed banning Radio Liberty broadcasts on the territory of the Russian Federation, Independent Television reported on 16 February. A majority of the deputies voted down the proposal. Alexander Rahr and Vera Tolz, RFE/RL, Inc. POPULATION DECLINE CONTINUES. Reports published recently indicate a marked decline in the population of Russia and suggest a continuation of this trend through the end of the century. From Roskomstat's preliminary data for 1993, as cited by RIA of 3 February, The Financial Times of 14 February, and ITAR-TASS of 15 February, it appears that in 1993 there were 1.4 million births and 2.2 million deaths. Because of inward migration of Russians from the "near abroad," the net fall in population was limited to 500,000. The decline is attributed primarily to economic upheaval, the breakdown in health services, and the deteriorating environment. The head of the Labor Ministry's Department of Human Resources reckons that the fertility index will remain at around 1.5 until the end of the century, whereas an index of 2.11 would be necessary to maintain the population.

Yours, Prof. Moshe Gur (Mogi), Chairman Public Relation Committe of the Moetza Metaemet. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx The Israel National Association of University Professors Febuary 20, 1994 CRISIS IN ISRAELI HIGHER EDUCATION Higher education in Israel ground to a halt seven weeks ago when the 4,500 faculty members of Israel's seven major universities declared a strike.On the surface, the faculty strike appears to be due to a wage dispute between academic faculties and the government.However the causes are much deeper. In its first decades, Israel made a strong commitment to higher education and invested heavily in it despite a heavy burden of defense costs.This commitment reflected a tradition of learning which has characterized Jewish societies for so many centuries.The young were encouraged to study.Israeli universities have faculty members who are world-renowned for their scientific work; tenure criteria are among the toughest in the world.However, during the past two decades, this tradition of devotion to learning has changed and, as Israel enters a period of prosperity, it seems to be disappearing.This is reflected in the low priority which successive governments have given to higher education.The present Rabin administration, which was elected on a platform which promised to give top priority to education, quickly forgot this commitment once elected. Budget cuts, year after year, have squeezed the universities to the point where they are in danger of becoming second-rate institutions.For example, 44,360 students were studying in Israel universities in 1972.Their number grew by 77% to 78,640 in 1992, while the number of academic staff increased by only 23%.As a result, professors must teach classes whose size, on the average, is greater by 45% than twenty years ago.At the same time, there has been a continual erosion of the salaries of academic faculty. It should be understood that the salaries of academic university staff are set by the Israeli government.Repeated attempts by the university professors to receive equitable salaries have been rebuffed by the government. Our salaries are half of what researchers with the same academic rank in government companies and research institutes receive.More significantly, a young faculty member in Israel, with a PhD, on the average 34 years old (with a rank equivalent to an Assistant Professor in the United States), has a take-home pay which represents 47% of that which the government itself publishes as the basic expense for an urban family.The consequences of such low salaries are already endangering our ability to function properly and the future looks bleak.Most of us must moonlight, or go abroad for extended periods to make ends meet.Young people who might otherwise consider an academic career continue to reject academia in increasing numbers for private or government jobs in Israel or abroad.We feel that we can no longer be called upon to maintain world-class universities at the current level of our salaries. The strike should therefore be seen as more than just a wage dispute. Professors, and the students who support them, see the future of higher education in Israel at stake.If higher education is not given proper priority, then the scientific and intellectual edge for which Israel is known, and which it needs to survive, will be jeopardized.In many respects, the universities are already feeling these effects. Unfortunately, the government has sent a clear message about its commitment to higher education through the demeaning rhetoric of the Prime Minister himself who is reported to have declared that he would not hesitate to close down all the Israeli universities.In an attempt to turn public opinion against academic university staff, derogatory comments in the media by government officials about professors have become daily occurrences.Listening to governmental spokesmen and politicians, one wonders if Israel is, in reality, the land of the "People of the Book"! We turn to you, our colleagues and friends abroad, and ask for your help in putting our case to the Israeli government, members of parliament (Knesset), opinion makers, and leaders of industry and commerce.Some of you have spent time, effort and money helping to build the universities. Others, have been involved in joint research projects, or had the opportunity to have spent time here.We know that all of you care. Please take the time to express your opinion and help us in this hour of crisis. ________________________________________________________________________ For further information please contact Prof. M.

K-n RFE/RL DAILY REPORT No. 38, 24 February 1994 ---------------------------------------------------------------- DUMA AMNESTIES YELTSIN FOES. In its first major decision, the State Duma on 23 February granted an amnesty to the leaders of the 1991 coup, those responsible for attacks on police at a Moscow demonstration last May Day, and the leaders of the parliamentary revolt crushed by Yeltsin in October. People convicted of economic crimes (i.e., selling for profit) in the Soviet era will also be freed. Yeltsin adviser Emil Payin told RFE/RL's Moscow correspondent the amnesty was "an open challenge" to Yeltsin. The amnesty, which passed by a vote of 252 to 67, was supported by communist and Liberal Democratic deputies. Article 103 of Russia's new constitution gives the Duma the sole right to declare an amnesty, and the president's power to veto laws passed by the Duma does not apply. Aleksandr Yakovlev, Yeltsin's representative to the Duma, told Russian TV on 22 February that the president has no constitutional power to prevent the amnesty. As a result, Ruslan Khasbulatov and Aleksandr Rutskoi may soon be freed. Khasbulatov has little support in Russian society, but Rutskoi, who was always popular, could be even more so now. As a nationalist hero, he could prove a formidable competitor not only to Yeltsin but also to Zhirinovsky. Elizabeth Teague, RFE/RL, Inc. RUSSIAN REACTION ON AMES AFFAIR. The chief of the press bureau of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR), Yurii Kobaladze, refused to discuss the exposure of Aldrich Hazen Ames and his wife as Soviet/Russian spies. According to ITAR-TASS of 23 February, his only comment was that "all questions in this matter must be addressed to the CIA." The director of the SVR, Evgenii Primakov, who was on a working visit to Slovakia, and his spokeswoman, Tatyana Samolis, also refused to comment on the Ames affair, Primakov noting that he had never heard of Ames. Meanwhile, Vladimir Nadein writes in Izvestiya of 24 February that by recruiting Ames the former KGB Foreign Intelligence had made in the 1980s "a breakthrough to [American intelligence] assets of tremendous value." Nadein added that the reaction of American side was grounded in "hypocrisy," because "Russia has no less a right to clandestine activity in the United States that the United States has in Russia." Victor Yasmann, RFE/RL, Inc. REACTIONS TO SPYING. Russia and the US traded harsh remarks over the case of a high-level CIA employee who allegedly spied for the Russian Federation. President Bill Clinton stressed the seriousness of the case on 23 February, and White House Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers emphasized at a briefing the same day that Washington did not "like it one bit." An unnamed senior Russian Foreign Ministry official told Interfax on 23 February that Washington was blowing the case out of proportion by being "overly emotional, acting first and thinking next." The same official questioned the timing of Washington's release of the information and suggested that publicizing the case was connected with dissatisfaction over Russia's Bosnia initiatives. Suzanne Crow, RFE/RL, Inc. GAZ PRIVATIZATION SCANDAL. The December 1993 auction of shares in a major automobile plant has been annulled by a government commission, the Financial Times and Reuters of 23 February reported, quoting Nezavisimaya gazeta and Kommersant. The commission charged that the director of the GAZ factory and some colleagues had used long-term state credits to the value of 46.5 billion rubles (about $30 million), provided for the introduction of a new model of truck, to purchase shares in the company at the December auction. The director now controls, directly or indirectly, some 30% of GAZ. A new auction will be scheduled, but it was unclear whether any action could be taken against the director and his colleagues under existing legislation. Keith Bush, RFE/RL, Inc. PRIVATIZATION AND FOREIGN INVESTMENT. Aleksandr Ivanenko, the first deputy chairman of the State Property Committee, said that the new state privatization program, in effect since 1 January, expands the possibilities for foreign investors to acquire property in Russia, Interfax reported on 22 February. The new program, in contrast to the 1992 legislation, permits foreign individuals and entities to procure vouchers for the purchase of shares in state enterprises. Previously, prior permission from the Finance Ministry was needed for foreign acquisitions. Restrictions are still maintained on the foreign purchase of shares in the defense and mining sectors, in the fuel and energy complex, and in certain extractive industries.

AE K-n. RFE/RL Daily Report, No. 39, 25 February 1994 ------------------------------------------------------------------- KGB SUCCESSOR AGENCY TOOK CONTROL OVER GOVERNMENT INFORMATION RESOURCES. President Yeltsin abolished the Administration of Information Resources (AIR) at the Presidential Office and transferred its functions to the Federal Agency of Government Communications and Information (FAPSI), Rossiiskaya gazeta reported on 23 February. According to the decree, the FAPSI, which is direct successor of the KGB's electronic intelligence and telecommunication services, will be responsible for maintaining both government and presidential information system and telecommunication lines. The FAPSI will thus play the same role as the KGB had in the USSR; the KGB held a monopoly not only on government information, but also on its channels. After the demise of the Soviet Union, Yeltsin created the AIR in order to reduce dependence from the services of former KGB. Kommersant-daily on 23 February noted that now the FAPSI has managed to restore it former clout.

The significance of the move by the Shchelkovo district court, reported by Interfax news agency, was not immediately clear. The report said the court's finding could be appealed within 10 days. The ruling came after one of the five losing contenders for the constituency, Professor Oleg Novikov, filed a formal complaint that election regulations had been violated. He alleged that candidates did not enjoy equal access to television, as provided by the rules, and that the ballot paper contained the name of a contender who had pulled out of the election race. Zhirinovsky headed the list of candidates from his Liberal Democratic Party who performed strongly in the polls. But he also stood as an individual in the Shchelkovo constituency, near Moscow, and it is that seat which he chose to fill in the State Duma (lower house). Half of the 450-seat Duma is filled by deputies elected on party lists and another half by winners in individual constituences. Zhirinovsky was not immediately availiable for comment. >From chakhovs@ece.ucdavis.edu Mon Feb 28 13:49 EST 1994 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu by super.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA04472; Mon, 28 Feb 94 13:49:42 -0500 Received: from madrone.ece.ucdavis.edu by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA06750; Mon, 28 Feb 94 13:49:40 -0500 Received: by madrone.ece.ucdavis.edu (5.57/Ultrix3.0-C/eecs 1.1) id AA18911; Mon, 28 Feb 94 10:49:37 -0800 Date: Mon, 28 Feb 94 10:49:37 -0800 From: chakhovs@ece.ucdavis.edu (Andrei G.

A.E.K-n RFE/RL Daily Report No. 44, 4 March 1994 ---------------------------------------------------------------- YELTSIN WANTS SECRETS TRIAL DROPPED. Russian TV newscasts of 3 March cited Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev as saying Yeltsin is eager to see an end to the case of Vil Mirzayanov, the Russian scientist who has been accused of divulging secret information concerning Russian weapons production. Writing last year in the liberal weekly Moscow News, and in an interview with The Baltimore Sun, Mirzayanov claimed that Russia was continuing to test chemical and biological weapons in defiance of international agreements. Mirzayanov was released last month but a new investigation was ordered. Kozyrev said the President feels the "whole unfortunate episode" should be closed as soon as legally possible. Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. ZHIRINOVSKY ACCUSED OF FRAUD. Nationalist leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky has appealed against a court decision to annul his election to the State Duma, Western agencies reported on 28 February. Zhirinovsky was elected to the Duma last December on the party list of his Liberal Democratic Party. He was also elected as an individual candidate in the Shchelkovo constituency near Moscow, and chose to take that seat in the Duma. On 25 February, a Russian court ruled that election procedures were violated during the Shchelkovo election, and annulled the election. (There were complaints that Zhirinovsky got more TV time than other candidates. Moreover, Radio Mayak and another Russian station, Radio Galaktika, have complained that Zhirinovsky paid them for air time with forged banknotes.) Elizabeth Teague, RFE/RL, Inc. ZHIRINOVSKY QUESTIONED. Vladimir Zhirinovsky, who is under investigation on charges of fomenting war propaganda, denied those charges when questioned on 28 February by a military prosecutor, ITAR-TASS reported on 1 March. Zhirinovsky said that neither in his book, The Last Push to the South, nor in other publications and speeches had he called for war or for the annexation of other states. Meanwhile, Zhirinovsky's party has announced that he plans soon to publish a trilogy entitled Russia's Destiny. A spokesman told AFP on 23 February that the first part, The Lessons of History, would cover the period from the beginning of the Russian Empire until the 1917 Revolution. The second part would consist of the controversial The Last Push to the South; while the final part would be called In My Opinion.

This is about a movie: at last I "vybral vremya i mesto" to see the "Schindler's List". No, no, I am not going to make you read ALL my reflections on it, don't worry, just wanted to strongly recommend to those of you who haven't seen it yet, to do so. Well, at least to those who might be considered an "interested party". Be aware, it's a 3.5-hour-long movie. A good one. I sure have a few critical comments, but this is irrelevant. As far as Holocaust-related (non-documental) movies go, I saw only one movie that is imprinted in my memory stronger than that one -- "Konets nashego sveta" (The End of Our World), a Polish movie, 20-25 year old, also about 3 hours long, where everyone was dead in the end, as it happened to the 99.99...% of the Holocaust victims; its director used a lot of documentary photos... Anyway, the "Schindler's List" is one of the best, and most likely, the best American movie on the subject. The way I see it, Spielberg, its director, can now retire or go to the moon or whatever: he has done THE thing in his life. He paid "a debt of the soul" to the man who saved 1200 live souls, and to 6 million others who haven't got such a luck, and just paying a debt like that gives you the highest reward possible. I guess, with that movie, he didn't care about the box-office success, or Oscar or any other awards -- another reason for you to see it... Well, anyway, see it, and remember (or learn if you didn't know much), -- and stay away from the places where it can happen again (unless you can do something to prevent it...). --Best, --Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Mon Mar 7 02:45:52 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from tukki.jyu.fi by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA05267; Mon, 7 Mar 94 02:45:49 -0500 Received: by tukki.jyu.fi id AA16304 (5.67a/IDA-1.4.4 for info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu); Mon, 7 Mar 1994 09:44:23 +0200 Date: Mon, 7 Mar 1994 09:44:18 +0200 (EET) From: Carina Wilmot Subject: INFO-RUSS: information??

SRA Mission statement: "Society for Risk Analysis is an interdisciplinary, scholarly, international society that provides an open forum for all those who are interested in risk analysis. Risk analysis is broadly defined to include risk assessment, risk characterization, risk communication, risk management and policy relating to risk, in the context of risks of concern to individuals, to public and private sector organizations, and to society as a local, regional, national, or global level." New England in general and Boston area in particular have a high concentration of researchers and practitioners of risk analysis and the SRA-NE monthly seminar is very well attended. There is a strong interest in developing mutually beneficial ties with our colleagues in the former Soviet Union. Many cities in ex-USSR are known to be heavily polluted and data on health effects of this pollution are no longer classified. These data may provide new sources of information about human exposure to chemicals and radiation since ambient concentration of pollutants in some cities is dozens of times above the U.S. limits. Examples of recent and current research topics at Harvard where active international collaboration is crucial include analysis of radiation risks around Chernobyl and Kyshtym (R.Wilson, Dept. of Physics) and comparative risk analysis in data sparse situations (J.Evans, School of Public Health). New England consulting companies are looking for prospective clients in the ex-USSR who may need their help in dealing with specific environmental problems. I am trying to identify those professionals in ex-USSR whose research and/or other activities are related to the SRA mission and who would be interested in exploring the opportunities for research/consulting collaboration. I would appreciate if you could circulate this letter among your colleagues in ex-USSR. As the first step, I will compile and make available a list of names, addresses, and areas of expertise.

This includes the press in other former USSR countries as well. Do you believe the press is free? Are there any restrictions on the press? Are they still monitored by the government? What stories seem to be reported on the most? Does the press model itself after the western press? Which medium is monitored the most- newspapers? Radio/TV? magazines? If the press has changed, do you like the changes? Do you wish the press went back to its old form?

He said that the president was working during his vacations in Sochi and that the presidential administration was receiving instructions from him on a daily basis. Yeltsins political advisor, Georgii Satarov, told Russian TVs Podrobnosti on 18 March that rumors of a coup in the Kremlin or of Yeltsins sickness might have been spread by a respectable political figure of the present political elite who has no chance to become president in democratic elections but who could gain power by different means.

The leader of the nationalist Liberal-Democratic Party, Vladimir Zhirinovsky, told a congress of his party that the Russian people now primarily support the idea of the resurrection of the Russian empire, Russian TV Vesti reported on 19 March. Zhirinovsky also called upon his party to start preparations for presidential elections which could take place any moment. He stated that the democrats do not have a suitable candidate and that the youth will not vote for the communists. He added that former Vice President Aleksandr Rutskoi has forged a coalition with Economics Minister Aleksandr Shokhin but that this coalition is also doomed to fail at the next presidential elections. Finally, he said that he believes new anti-constitutional actions will take place soon. Alexander Rahr, RFE/RL, Inc. REGIONAL COURT OVERRULES DECISION INVALIDATING ZHIRINOVSKY ELECTION. The Moscow Oblast court has overruled an earlier decision of the Shchelkovo city court which in February proclaimed invalid the election of Vladimir Zhirinovsky to the State Duma in the 114 Shchelkovo single-candidate electoral district, ITAR-TASS reported on 18 February. The Shchelkovo city court invalidated the election results after confirming the falsification of a number of electoral protocols in the 114 electoral district. In overruling this decision, the Moscow Oblast court stated that the decision was inconsistent and surpassed the courts competency. Only the Central Electoral Commission is empowered to annul Zhirinovskys election, the Moscow Oblast court stated. Vera Tolz, RFE/RL, Inc. WARNING OF DIPHTHERIA OUTBREAK. The deputy head of the State Epidemiological Inspectorate has called for a massive vaccination program against diptheria, ITAR-TASS and Interfax reported on 18 March. A total of 468 deaths from the disease were reported in 1993, while 50 more died in January 1994.

I'm starting from the problem of passport issue. I'm a MIPT graduate and I faced this problem when emigrating overseas. So let me share my experience in solving such a problem. One of the ways out of Russia for those people who have a non-Russian (but x-USSR) ethnic background is to apply to the naturalization in a CIS country as a first step. Sometimes it's difficult and takes some time but this thing is worth your efforts. When doing this, you can apply for passport in this country. Your "secrets" in Russia are not of interest for national security office outside Russia, so you have no obligations with your new country of residence and you will obtain the passport quite easily. Theoretically, this situation can be changed but while some CIS countries oppose attempts of Russia to dominate in the region, I suppose you have a time to use this advice. 2. The question about the military draft. There is an opportunity to reject Russian citizenship. Non-citizents are under no military obligations in Russia. When applying for this procedure, a proper reason to do so should be provided in the application form which is available from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (be aware of that the bureocracy causes different obstacles on this way; the common reply to an inquire is a sort of "we don't have such application forms" or sometimes, in private situation, "ty prosto izmennik Rodinie!", etc. Be assertive and polite at the same time; a good reason for troubleless processing of the application is referring to non-Russian ethnic origins (if any) and willing to be naturalized in your ethnic motherland. However, be prepared to unexpected. Mirzayanov's trial is a good illustration for the actual democracy level in Russia. Remember, that being unwilling to serve in Russian Army is not a valid reason for the approval of this application. The last note: having no citizenship doesn't infringe upon your human rights, so you can live and work in Russia but there are some restrictions when you want to privatize a land, for example. I beleive, however, that the majority of MIPT graduates have nothing to lose in this regard. -- Best regards, G.

Sergei Filatov, the head of the presidential administration, appeared in a ten-minute interview broadcast on Russian TV on 22 March during which he sought to dismiss the continuing rumors concerning President Boris Yeltsin's health. According to Filatov, Yeltsin has signed 81 decrees and instructions during his working vacation, although they have not yet been published. The persistent coup rumors were attributed by Filatov to those who are trying to weaken Yeltsin's authority. While he also asserted that Yeltsin was fit and had been playing tennis, the short video clip shown on Russian TV on 21 March briefly showed Yeltsin walking slowly, and sitting, while talking to Chernomyrdin. The ambiguous nature of the video appears not to have dispelled the concerns over Yeltsin's health but instead increased them. Yeltsin is reportedly scheduled to return to Moscow at the end of the week, and will meet with Kazakhstani President Nursultan Nazarbaev at the end of the month. John Lepingwell, RFE/RL, Inc. CONTINUING CONFUSION OVER THE ALLEGED COUP ATTEMPT. On 22 March, TV's "Vesti" quoted Interfax as reporting that the Russian Counterintelligence Service had received "signals" concerning the preparations of a coup against President Yeltsin long before the media started reporting about it on 16 March. "Vesti" also quoted Deputy Prime Minister Oleg Soskovets as saying that he has never protested about allegations in the media identifying him as one of the coup leaders. Soskovets' statement contradicted the claim made by the office of the Russian Prosecutor-General that Soskovets' testimony was the basis for their formal investigation. Julia Wishnevsky, RFE/RL, Inc. PLANE CRASH IN SIBERIA. Western and Russian press agencies reported on 22-23 March that an Aeroflot Airbus crashed during a flight from Moscow to Hong Kong killing all 75 people on board. The Airbus A-310 was reportedly leased from a German company, and was some 3750 km east of Moscow when the crash occurred. Russian air traffic control had been maintaining radio contact with the aircraft and there was apparently no distress signal from it before the crash, suggesting a sudden accident or explosion took place.

The computer support group of our organization called APS has distributed the following message, which some of you might find interesting. Volodja Kushnir. Description: WARNING: Major Internet hacking activity. date: 21-MAR-1994 Network and computer system managers worldwide have been monitoring a well-organized effort to gain unauthorized access to computers connected to the Internet. The hackers are capturing login, telnet, and ftp sessions which include usernames and passwords. The number of computer accounts compromised worldwide has exceeded 100,000 so far, according to latest reports. This represents the most serious Internet threat in history. If you perform any kind of remote login to another system, either to or from APS computers, your account MAY be vulnerable. The activity that should set off warnings would be any kind of password prompt from a system that's not local to you at the time. It doesn't matter whether you're logging into an APS system from offsite (to do file transfer or remote terminal sessions) or whether you're doing the same from APS to an offsite system. Note that because of the method used to collect passwords, E-mail, Worldwide Web (Mosaic), anonymous ftp, and similar utilities that DON'T require passwords ARE NOT susceptible to this form of intrusion. Computer Support requests that any user who has logged into an offsite system or used a remote system to log in here change passwords IMMEDIATELY! Further, C-S recommends that any user who logs into a computer offsite or accesses our computers from an offsite location change passwords regularly, preferably once a month, until further notice. Changing passwords every 6 months is MANDATORY in ANY case. This policy has been enforced on the APS VMS systems for some time, and C-S will begin using software to enforce a similar policy on Oxygen. Passwords which are not easily compromised are based upon non-dictionary words, hence any word which might appear in a dictionary, EVEN IF IT IS SUPPOSEDLY AN OBSCURE WORD is unsuitable. Similarly, any password which is derived from your name, department, or other personal information is unsuitable because it can be easily guessed. It is important that password security be maintained at a high level for the sake of ALL the people who use these computers. >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Thu Mar 31 17:18:12 EST 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: from rainbow.physics.utoronto.ca by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA01309; Thu, 31 Mar 94 17:18:11 -0500 Received: by rainbow.physics.utoronto.ca id AA11588; Thu, 31 Mar 94 17:18:08 EST Date: Thu, 31 Mar 94 17:18:08 EST From: Vladimir Smirnov Message-Id: <9403312218.AA11588@rainbow.physics.utoronto.ca> To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject:INFO-RUSS: new rules of leaving Russia?

All the resident aliens, visitors, and persons on a work-related visa are encouraged to report the cases of fraud and abuse among the applicants for the resident or refugee status to the INS: falsifying the records of birth and ethnic origin, political or religious persecution, making dishonest and deceptive statements, entering the sham marriages, and misrepresenting the scientific credentials. According to the INS spokeswoman, Ms. Daz W. Sibeaz, a special telephone hotline will be established as soon as in May; special P.O. box will be made operational in June, with the e-mail connection to follow. As an encouragement, the whistle-blowers, whose identity will be kept strictly confidential, will be given preferential treatment when their own immigration cases come up for the INS consideration. A special immigration/refugee quota for the whistle- blowers will be established in 1994-95 financial year. Addressing the question of how the INS is going to separate the cases of genuine abuse from the false accusations, Ms. Sibeaz has stated that the special preference will be given to the information from the people who have had a prior experience in the supplying the authorities with valuable information in the country of their origin. In order to give more weight to their claims and thus get higher rating, the potential whistle-blowers are encouraged to supply the references regarding their similar activity in the past, including their rank and department, if professional. (In the case of cross-information, i. e. when two persons report on each other, the preference will be given to the one having the higher rank.) The INS has decided to extend the status of "refugee" to the FSU persons only if they have demonstrated the real threat of any prosecution BEFORE Apr.15 1994. In a rear case of the intergovermental agencies collaboration the Internal Revenue Service has agreed to facilitate the problem of handling the rush of the late filing for the asylum by combining the asylum form for the applicants already in the US with 1040 tax form in a new 1040-FSU form. The form is easy to use and has special boxes to check, such as: "Member of ethnic and/or religious and/or sexual minority" (Being a Russian in the FSU republics does not qualify for ethnic minority, although it may in some cases qualify for other two) "Have been beaten, harassed and/or insulted by police, spouse or domestic partner" (pets are NOT included) "Have been discriminated on the basis of your sexual preference or profession" "Have lived for at least 5 years within 100 miles radius from Chernobyl (Ukraine) or Dolgoprudnaya (Moscow Region)" "Have been inducted into the Profsoyus, Komsomol, Party, or Academy of Sciences against your own will". "Have been forced to obtain a "kandidat" or "doctor" degree", etc. The new forms will be available from any local IRS offices prior to April 15.

Status: O Dear IR-folks, As an alumnus of FizTech (Moscow Phys.-Tech. Inst, or Mosc. Inst. of Phys. & Technology, MIPT, which our friend, don Alejandro Nalpak, by some strange reason calls Fizkul'turnyi Technikum:-), and keeper of FizTech-abroad e-mail list, I received the letter (see below) related to that glorious (at least in the past:-) place. Not that I am overhelmed by nostalgia over my memories about it, yet we have about 200 or so subscribers on IR-net who are alumni of the same lousy:-) place, so I thought it would be fair to them that the letter be broadcasted. This doesn't mean that as an IR-coordinator (or a FizTech-list keeper) I share necessarily its authors' views and/or support them in their quest. I've personally got quite a fun from reading their statement regarding recruitment of MIPT graduates to the Army: "in order to preserve important fraction of Russian intellectual elite which is, in fact, a part of the world culture. An attempt to smother this part is a violation of human rights!" Spoken like real freedom-fighters! Where've been all these human rights loving people in the Sov-time when the FizTech was given so much of privileges? And how come they conveniently forgot that all the classified (secret) research institutions back in Russia (and in former Sovok) were (and still are) full of FizTech alumni, "Russian intellectual elite", those poor Cinderellas, working hard on developing all kind of weaponry against that very same "world culture"? Well, anyway, here is the letter, full text; it is up to you what you make of it. --Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator P. S. This text came to me from a few different sources; one of them (FizTech alumnus, too), supplemented it with these comments: -------------------------------------------------------- The following is a message that I have just received from my Moscow friend. If you find it appropriate you may want to post it... Frankly, I have reservations about it, noting that one of the signees used to travel every year (under Reds) to the US while working in Filial IAE. Another point that my close friend, decent, uncompromising, anti-Soviet in Soviet times, person who belongs to the same group did not sign it. Also, the suggestion and self-evaluation by authors are somewhat questionable.... -------------------------------------------------------- AEK comment: Yep, I do know who is the guy among "podpisants" who traveled every year to the US... I've seen him at the conferences here... If you guys, want to save the elita like him, you better send your supporting letters directly to the "elite" department on three letters... ************************************************************ 2-Apr-94 21:04:30-GMT,4070;000000000001 Return-Path: asebrant@glas.apc.org Date: Sun, 3 Apr 94 01:00 +0400 From: asebrant@glas.apc.org (Andrey Sebrant) Subject: Please help in distributing the letter XXXX and YYYY! I am sending you this letter asking to post it to conferences, mailservers, and whatever else you find suitable. In our opinion, the more MIPT graduates and/or people who care about MIPT read it, the better. I guess you better know the ways to distribute the letter among the community of scientists of Russian origin abroad.... Any your comments, suggestions would be highly appreciated. Do you think that we need to prepare a draft of the letter to Russian authorities? Or maybe you think all this is silly and "da chtob oni vse tam v svoei sovdepii predohli!" I have met Russian emmigrants who react in this way to any request from Moscow... Thank you Andrey =-=-=-=-=-cut here=-=-=-=-=-cut here=-=-=-=-=-cut here=-=-=- Dear friends and colleagues! We are worried by the fate of MIPT which, of course, reflects the situation at large in Russian higher education in science. The prestige of this entire area is virtually zero because of negligible or non-existing salaries and as a result less and less school graduates decide to study science in the universities and institutes. With a certainty we can project that this year there will be fewer applications then available vacancies at MIPT. One of severe blows MIPT is suffering from is the new decision of the authorities to recruit MIPT graduates to the Army. This fate awaits most of this year graduates since the number of those who meet the military criteria (citizens of Russia, in good health, with their military education completed) practically matches the figures issued by the Ministry of Defense. Moreover, any student who has ever been to military camps, is declared to have knowledge of state secrets and therefore is not allowed to get an international passport for 5 years. We know that only very few other Russian Institutes have the same problem (their students have been declared to be secret holders). The resistance of the Institute leaders against these actions of the authorities is very weak. Frankly speaking, even if all Russian Academicians together were trying to express their wrath and indignation, they would hardly find an interested audience amid all the mess and noise around. Both the President and other decision makers are tuned to other frequencies. It seems to us that now is the time to show that there is a community of those who care. It would make sense to prepare a letter addressed to the Russian President with the appeal to save MIPT graduates from regular Army service (unless they decide to join the Army, of course) in order to preserve important fraction of Russian intellectual elite which is, in fact, a part of the world culture. An attempt to smother this part is a violation of human rights! It would be better to have prominent American scientists (maybe some Nobel Prize winners) sign the letter and present it to both Russian and international mass-media. Maybe this action will save MIPT from its otherwise inevitable decay! Graduates and Professors of MIPT: Nikolay Kovalsky Alexander Goltsov Andrey Sebrant Maria Stepanova Igor Novobrantsev Andrey Starostin Vladimir Baranov Arkadii Kolomiyskii (we decided to send this letter immediately rather than organize a local campaign of signing it in Russia. But if you think we need to have a longer list, it wodn't take long to have hundreds of signatures...)

Chto izmenilos' s predyduqej poezdki, letom? Pohozhe, pochti nichego. Po krajnej mere, na pervyj vzgliad. Chisto vneshne, vse, kak bylo, esli ne schitat' togo, chto vnov' pribavilos' krasivyh devushek (letom oni, vidimo, byli v Sochi ili na Kipre) i ubavilos' lic kavkazskoj nacional'nosti na ulicah i v lar'kah - rezul'tat Luzhkovskoj e'tnicheskoj chistki. Vse podorozhalo, i ne tol'ko v rubliah. Po tovaram, brosaiuqimsia v glaza na ulicah, mozhno ocenit' padenie $ po otnosheniyu k real'nomu rublyu (popravlennomu na inflyaciyu) v primerno 40%. Inymi slovami, esli letom kg konfet Stratosfera ctoil $6.50, to teper'- $10, banka chernoj ikry podnyalas' s $3 do $6 (Pravda ikry uzhe pokushat' ne udalos': v lar'kah, gde 150g banka stoit $6, ona chasto tuhlaya, a v Okeane 50g banka - $11), devochka na zakaz po telefonu s $50 do $85 za 2 chasa i t.d. Govoryat, chto e'to obqaya tendenciya - ceny na otechestvennye tovary dognali ili dazhe obognali mirovye. Zarplata v $500/m-c uzhe ne rassmatrivaetsya kak burzhujskaya. Rossiya uverenno sleduet za Pol'shej i Vengriej, s opozdaniem na 2-3 goda. Kak paru let nazad skazal 1 pol'skij uchenyj, ran'she 3 m-cev raboty na Zapade bylo dostatochno, chtoby kupit' dom, teper' teh zhe deneg hvatet razve chto na unitaz v e'tom dome. To zhe teper' i v Rossii. Halyava konchilas'. Prilichnyj dom pod Moskvoyu stoit uzhe okolo limona, a kvartiry idut po 200 - 300 000 USD. To zhe otnositsya i k Zhigulyam ($12,000) i k restoranam: letom mozhno bylo prilichno pokushat' za pyaterku, teper' skromnyj obed bez vina v restorane Varshava stoit chetvertak. (Pravda, nado otdat' dolzhnoe, pri vpolne zapadnoj cene servis i zhratva tam tozhe vpolne zapadnye.) Koroche, rubl' krepchaet. A s nim krepchaet recessiya: zavody zakryvayutsya, narod, pravda, poka ne vygonyayut, a otpravlyayut v neoplachennyj otpusk. S drugoj storony, magaziny popolnyayutsya, tovarov bol'she, hotya eqe ne kak za bugrom. No mestnye polagayut, chto oni uzhe dognali shtat Ajova, govoryat, chto teper' prodaetsya vse. Po-moemu, naschet vsego oni slegka preuvelichivayut. Ya, pravda, uspel otmetit' vozvrat kolbasy iz myasa, ee teper' navalom, pochti kak na Brajton Biche. Est' dazhe Mikoyanovskaya, ran'she ee kushali tol'ko kommunyaki, a teper' vsyakij, komu ne zhal' 5 $/kg mozhet byt' dopuqen k stolu. K novostyam e'konomiki ya eqe vernus', a poka chut'-chut' o kul'turnoj zhizni, naskol'ko ya uspel ee poqupat' za 3 vechera. V kino po- prezhnemu krutoj amerikanskij otstoj, hotya mne poperlo i ya popal na pokaz "Ohoty na babochek" Ioseliani (dazhe s yavleniem samogo Ioseliani narodu). Delo bylo v k/t Moskva, kotoryj tepr' zovetsya domom Hanzhopkova i oprihodovan kakim-to sovershenno operetochnym dvoryanskim sobraniem. E'ti-to gospoda-dvoryane i ustroili pokaz fil'ma, a za e'to sami polchasa demonstrirovali sebya publike. Vyhodyat na scenu 3 mordatyh sovka gebeshnogo vida i velichayut drug-druga graf'yami da knyaz'yami... Bednyj Ioseliani (kotoryj tozhe iz graf'ev) vse pytalsya ih urezopnit' i prosil nacaht' pokazyvat' kino, govoril moe delo ne boltat', a krutit' ruchku kamery. No kino nastol'ko priyatnoe, chto dazhe knyaz'ya s holopskimi rozhami ne smogli isportit' vechera. Eqe 1 vecher byl posvyaqen teatru, a imenno Sovremenniku, a imenno prem'ere po p'ese Galina. Hotya Kvasha po-prezhnemu horosh, no ni p'esa, ni postanovka, uvy, ne dotyagivayut do Steny ili Kryshi togo zhe Galina. No e'to eqe pol-bedy. Huzhe, chto publika v Sovremennike stala ne sovsem ta, chto byla. Malo togo, chto kakie-to, myagko govorya, devushki rzhali na ves' zal v samyh nepodhodyaqih mestah, kak na poslednem seanse v sel'skom klube... Esli by tol'ko e'to. Cerkuliruyu sebe po foje v antrakte, kak v bylye vremena, i vdrug vizhu, chto na vstrechu mne spokojno tak idet molodoj chelovek let 16, pohozhij ne to na Plyumbuma, ne to na molodogo Mal'kolma Makdoue'lla, v chernom kostyme, smahivayuqem na sovetskuyu shkol'nuyu formu, i so znachkom so svastikoj na lackane pidzhaka. Priehali... Tretij zahod proshel bolee udachno: koncert Ivaqenko i Vasil'eva byl nastol'ko horosh, chto ya dazhe nachal zavidovat' tem, kto ne uehal. I tut oboshlos' bez blyadej i svastik: zal byl bitkom-nabit klassicheskimi kspe'shnymi intelligentami, lishnego biletika strelyali ot metro i bylo ochen' veselo. Lesha i Gosha nichut' ne sdali, hoty i peli v osnovnom starye pesni. Osobenno zabaven tot fact, chto pri cene bileta v $1.50 Vasil'ev vpolne mog by otkupit' ves' zal: v kakoj eqe strane vy najdete millionera, kotoryj budet pet' so sceny, da eqe i za spasibo? Emu dazhe prislali zapisku s voprosom "Kem vy sejchads rabotaete?". Vasil'ev potupil ochi dolu i skazal: "Ya rabotayu prezidentom. Ran'she ya stesnyalsya govorit' ob e'tom, a teper' vot nichego, privyk." ( On nachal s dolzhnosti predsedatelya Oktyabr'skogo rajispolkoma pri Zaslavskom, potom stal prezidentom kakoj-to rossijsko hrenovo-syr'evoj birzhi, a teper' prezident kakoj-to monstrovoj investicionnoj kompanii.) Koroche, kul'turnaya zhiz'n' ne umerla. Ya dolgo ne mog reshit'sya, kuda zhe pojti v imevshieesya 3 vechera: toli v Sovremennik, toli na Yugo- Zapad, toli v Tabakovku, toli na spektakl'-striptiz teatra plastiqeskoj pornuhi ili ka ego tam. Knigami po-prezhnemu, zabity vse stancii metro, vse kioski polny video, pravda, polnejshim remboidnym marazmom. Odnako, na tolkuchke pered Gorbushkoj ya nakupil 20 video kasset s russkimi fil'mami, ot klassicheskih mul'tikov, do toj zhe "Ohoty na babochek" i "Luna parka". Letom russkih fil'mov ne predlagali sovsem. Na toj zhe tolkuchke prodayutsya ^CD^, no s nimi pohuzhe - polnoe zasilie zapada, mne priglyanulis' lish' BG (Ramzes - 4) i novaya cidishka Zhannochki Aguzarovoj, vypuqennya uzhe v Amerike, hotya eqe i po- russki. Ceny tut tozhe pochti mirovye: video ot $7 do $25, ^CD^ - ot $6 do $15. Prodaetsya dovol'no mnogo rossijskoj popsy, odna gruppa chestno harakterizovala svoj stil' kak "Russkij pizdance". No ne smotrya na davlenie rynka, e'ntuziastam udaetsya izdavat' vpolne prilichnye veqi, ot DDT do Nolya i Vyhoda. Kstati, bayanist i lider Nolya Fedya Chistyakov po-prezhnemu sidit v durdome, a legendarnyj zvukooperator leningradskogo rok-kluba A. Tropillo teper' skromnen'ko kupil sebe Leningradskij zavod gramplastinok. Chto eqe brosaetsya v glaza? Iz goroda sovsem ischezli taksi. Hotya pojmat' tachku truda ne sostavlyaet - chastnym izvozom baluetsya, po- moemu, pol-goroda. Ceny snosnye, esli ne schitat' marshrutov druzhby iz Sheremetjevo i izhe s nimi. K moemu udivleniyu, 1 raz ya vse zhe zalovil pochti nastoyaquyu taksisnuyu Volgu s shashechkami. Pochti, potomu, chto schetchika v nej ne okazalos' - zachem licemerit'? Taksist rasskazal, chto mashinu vykupil na paru so smenqikom, stoit ona teper' u nih vo dvore, a taksopoarkov, kak takovyh, bol'she prakticheski ne suqestvuet. Taksisty otpuqeny na vol'nye hleba, a pomeqeniya taksoparkov arenduyut kakie-to mafiozno-kommercheskie struktury, kotorye skladiruyut tam BMW, ugnannye iz Germanii i vyvezennye cherez sovetskie voennye bazy. Taksist, hotya i soznalsya, chto zarabatyvaet ne ploho, vlast' materil s zhutkoj zlost'yu ("Sobral by ih vseh v odnu kuchu i utopil"), pominal "vreditelej, kotorye razvali takuyu sistemu" i vzyval k duhu Stalina. Na vopros: "Chto, golosuem za Zhirinovskogo?" on otvetil: "I Zhirinovskogo k toj zhe stenke!". Kstati, sam by pro Zhirinovskogo on i ne vspomnil - u menya slozhilos' oquqenie, chto takogo cheloveka prosto ne suqestvuet, po krajnej mere za predelami ^CNN^. Pohozhe, naselenie ego v g robu videlo, est' dela i povazhnee. (Kstati, v nedavnih oprosah rejting Vladimira Adol'fovicha vnov' upal do 5%.) Teper', kak obeqano, o novostyah e'konoiki. Osnovnye cherty tekuqego momenta: 1. Vnutrennie cenu sravnivayutsya ili uzhe sravnyalis' s mirovymi; 2. Dikie nalogi i importnye poshliny, kotorye, odnako, nikto ne platit; 3. Dikaya dohodnost' torgovli (100 - 200% godovyh v valyute) i ubytochnost' proizvodtva; 4. Polnyj perehod na rasschetu nalichnymi i dvojnuyu buhgalteriyu; 5. Skvoznaya korrupciya: vse berut, vse dayut; 6. Re'ket: platyat prakticheski vse, ot taksistov do gigantskih kommercheskih bankov. O potrebitel'skih cenah uzhe bylo skazano vyshe. S cenami na syr'e i t.d. situaciya analogichnaya. Tak, esli god nazad cena Al na vnutrennem rynke sostavlyala 10% ot mirovoj, to kak raz na dnyah oni sravnyalis'. Pravda, tol'ko naivnye e'konomisty iz ^Economist^a mogut nadeyat'sya, chto teper' kanadskij Al vernetsya na rynok. Mnogo oni ponimayut v postsovetckoj e'konomike. Al po rynochnoj cene davno nikto v sovke ne pokupayet, skhema gorazdo proqe. Poka chto direktor Al zavoda yavlyaetsya ne bolee, chem nayemnym me'nedzherom, a potomu emu vygodnee prodat' paru e'shelonov Al po cene na 30% nizhe "rynochnoj", poluchiv pri e'tom ot pokupatelya otkat v paru mln $ nalichnymi. Tak chto, kanadskie bezrabotnye mogut ne bespokoit'sya, ih kanikuly eqe ne zakonchilis'. I e'to lish' odna iz "malen'kih hitrostej" rossijskoj rynochnoj e'konomiki. Ostal'nye nichut' ne bolee legal'ny. Tak, na vvedenie importnyh poshlin i dikie podohodnyj i NDS (^VAT^) nalogi e'konomika i torgovlya otvetili polnym perehodom na $-nalichnyj oborot, kotoryj oblegchaet zanizhenie dohodov, a s nim i nalogov, v tysyachi raz. V rezul'tate proizoshlo ustranenie poslednih "kupi-prodaj" kontor, kotorye rabotali otnositel'no po-belomu - oni ne mogut konkurirovat' s temi, kto rabotaet po chernomu nalu. V e'toj svyazi stanovitsya vse zhe ponyatnym sleduyuqee ob"yavlenie v metro: "TOO Kryzhopol'-Seris priglashaet trudovye kollektivy so svoimi ob"emami rabot. Oplata nalichnymi v razmere 105% ot kontrakta". Takih ob"yav hvatalo eqe na zare kooperativnogo dvizheniya, no togda vse zhe bylo ne 105%, a 70%. Vopros: zachem TOO Kryzhopol'-Seris eqe i priplachivaet izobretatelyam-odinochkam? Otvet yasen iz konteksta: chernye den'gi inogda vse zhe nado otmyvat', i za e'to prihoditsya platit'. Pohozhe, legitimnogo biznesa v Rossii ne ostalos' voobqe. A po semu, lyuboj muhlezh vosprinimaetsya rossijskimi biznesmenami kak nechto samo saboj razumeyuqeesya, chego i skryvat'-to osobenno ne sleduet. O takih "malen'kih hitrostyah" otkryto pishet "Kommersant", ne hvataet tol'ko seminarov tipa "Psihologiya dachi vzyatok" ili "Kak oformit' vash biznes na tequ iz Zhmerinki" (Proshu zametit', chto Zhmerinka teper' zagranica i, v svoem rode, offshornaya zona. K slovu, Zhaporozhec teper' bolee ne Zapor, a inomarka). Lyuboj zapadnyj biznesmen pomer by ot razryva serdca, dovedis' emu rabotat' v takih usloviyah. A russkie hot' by chto, vpolne dovol'ny. Ih motivy yasny: kakoj zap. biznesmen mozhet delat' 15% v MESYAC? Kstati, astronomicheskie % - tret'ya osobennost' postsovetskogo obqestva. Biznesmeny dayut drug-drugu kratkosrochnyj kredit (pod stolom, pod chestnoe slovo) pod 5-10% v mesyac. Ves' gorod zakleen reklamoj kakih-to bankov, investicionnyh fondov i prochih burzhuaznyh institutov, obeqayuqih nechto fantasticheskoe: kto 900% godovyh v rublyah, kto - 120% v valyute. I naselenie klyunulo, teper' vse stali investorami. Edinstvennoe mesto, kuda stoyat ocheredi - e'to v e'ti banki- fondy, sdavat' den'gi. I stoyat v nih prostye sov. lyudi, otnyud' ne millionqiki. Poslednie libo krutyat den'gi sami, libo ssuzhayut druzhkov, ob'yavleniya im ni k chemu. Nekotorye fondy uzhe dazhe ne platyat dividendov - ih akcii rastut v cene tak bystro, chto nikakih dividendov i ne nuzhno. Klassicheskij primer - MMM, kotoryj udvaivaetsya v cene chut' li ne za mesyac. Vzyatki dayutsya i berutsya s legkost'yu, nemyslimoj ne tol'ko dlya zapada, no i dlya sovka perioda zastoya. Tak, teper', govoryat, ne trebuetsya imet' "svoego" tamozhennika, vpolne dostatochno prosto shepnut' lyubomu dezhurnomu, chto budet otkat, projti s nim v tualet, gde tut zhe rasschitat'sya nalichnymi. Pri e'tom, skhema, yakoby, rabotaet vsegda, iz chego sleduet, chto esli sluhi sootvetstvuyut dejstvitel'nosti, to v Sheremet'evo ne ostalos' ni odnogo chestnogo tamozhennika. Molva govorit, chto nekij me'r nekoego goroda ochen' lyubit, kogda $$ akkuratno ukladyvayut v korobku iz-pod konfet, tysyach tak po 50 za podpis'. Sleduyuqaya, eqe bolee pechal'naya, osobennost' "novoj e'konomicheskoj demokratii" - vseobqee zasilie re'keta. Dan' platyat prakticheski vse, ot lar'kov do kommercheskih bankov. Raz v kvartal v lavku zahodyat ochrednye rozhi i sprashivayut, s kem "sotrudnichaet" hozyain. Poluchiv ssylku na Senyu Hromogo i ego kontaktnyj tel., vezhlivo udalyayutsya proverit'. Razbirayutsya kak-to sami, i esli novye orly okazyvayutsya kruche Seni, to hozyain lavki nachinaet platit' im. Delo stalo nastol'ko privychnym, chto biznesmeny otnosyatsya k nemu stol' zhe spokojno, kak i k vzyatkam i neuplate nalogov. Ser'eznye biznesy preobrazuyut gruppirovki v chastnye "sluzhby bezopastnosti", doukomplektovyvaya ih byvshimi mentami i ge'be'shnikami. Na to, chto skazal v Dume Zhirinovskij ili Kazannik, vsem gluboko naplevat'. Real'naya novost', kotoraya potryasla delovoj mir Moskvy, - e'to ubijstvo Otarika, krestnogo otca odnoj iz samyh sil'nyh mafij. Ubit on byl v klassicheskom stile - iz vintovki s opticheskim pricelom s bol'shogo rasstoyaniya. Nikakih koncov, professional'naya rabota. (sm. ^NY Times^ za 14 Apr.) Vot e'ta novost' vyzvala zhivoj interes, t.k. oznachala real'noe pereraspredelenie vlasti. A vsyakie tam El'ciny-Ruckie-Zhirinovskie -e'to vse fignya, ne stoit vnimaniya. E'to i ponyatno, ved' vlast' prinadlezhit ne im, a novoyavlennym prefektam s Otarikami. V zaklyuchenie zarisovka iz zhizni radioupravlyaemyh chelnokov. Beretsya Van'ka, kotoryj ne-be-ne-me ni na kakom yazyke krome maternogo i otpravlyaetsya samoletom v Hong-Kong ili na Tajwan, za chipami. V ruki emu daetsya kejs i ^cellular phone^. Po prilete na mesto chelnok zvonit pryamo iz samoleta svoim bossam cherez sputniki v Moskvu, i te vedut ego cherez tamozhni, a zatem po gorodu ("Vidish' bol'shoj univermag? Sverni za ugol, 200m vpered, zatem napravo, eqe 500 vpered...") pryamo v chipsovyj magazin, gde ego zhdet tovar, zaranee proplachennyj po ^SWIFT^u. Takim zhe manerom nazad, poka ne syadet v samolet.

In the last week issue of "Time" (Apr.18'94), p. 52, there is an article by J. Beaty, "Russia's Yard Sale". It was sent in from Yekaterinburg, former Sverdlovsk, where our great democrat Mr. Yeltsyn rose to power as a party boss (I've been there too:-, in 1956, on my first cargo-train voyage; gosh, what a dreadful place...). It is a long article, all of it about free-for-all sale of huge Russian inventories in rare metals, weapon, isotope materials, etc., with the total amounting to many billions ($$, naturally). The reporter have accompanied an American businessman (whose origin is not specified though) in his long shopping-spree trip all over Russia and the rest of ex-USSR. How about this: 200 lbs (about 100 kg) of gem-quality emeralds (claimed by reporter to be supposed for use in laser-weapon program); all kind of isotops and other materials from Chelabinsk-65 and Sverdlovsk-45 P.O.-boxes; multimillion $$ sale of internationally restricted osmium 187 (acquired by KGB for $40 000/gram and sold to a Swedish company for $70 000/gram; black market price -- up to $100 000) and boron 10; Russian admiral intentionally scuttled submarines to sell them for scrap; the reporter personally witnessed a multimillion weapons-system purchase; a Slovak company used as a cover; and on, and on, and on. The major group of people involved on the Russian side -- KGB and former commy-bosses, top officials at all those military factories. The bargain yard-sale (or rather yard-looting) goes on like a fire on a huge scale. The reporter claims (and State Department too) that the world is lucky that no nuclear weapons has been sold to a higher bidder so far; well, fat chance... So, it seems to me that all of you, dudes, (well, who knows, may not be all of you...) who moved to the West, missed a once-in-a-life opportunity to get rich. But then, the same KGB and commy looters, who are getting rich on Russian people account, are not fools either: most of them moved their families to the West, bought themselves green-cards (not without help from their local counterparts, I suspect:-), purchased real estate in Florida, California, and even New York, and some of them (or their family members) most likely subscribe to info-russ... (hey, hey I don't know whom they are, just guessing:-). The very same people who were part of the corrupted, brain-washing, jailing and murdering sov-machine... Well, I guess you heard most of all these yard-sale stories. At some point somebody offered me, for example, to buy two soviet space-suites for a bargain price: just $10 000/item. I had no use for them; but if any of you, my kind co-networkers, have a slightly used AK-47, I can consider purchasing it: can come handy when dealing with my administration over some issues, say highway-robbery overhead... And as a last resort, it would be nice to have a portable nuke: it makes a very persuasive argument...

My wife and I are going to Russia from May 30 - June 20 (and I'll be staying on at St. Petersburg State University to study Russian until Aug. 1). We would like to also travel to Saratov, Russia to visit her "ancestral homeland" - a small German settlement once known as Rohleder. Her maternal grandfather left Rohleder around 1900 and settled in Hays, Kansas. So, I wonder if I could ask you all some questions in this regard: Does anyone have any suggestions for the most economical means to travel to Saratov from St. Petersburg or Moscow? Does anyone know what the name of Rohleder might be today or how to find out? Does anyone have suggestions for how to arrange over the Internet for lodging in Saratov; for example a reliable home stay of 5-7 days? Does anyone have experience with researching public records in Russia and specifically, regarding Volga Germans in Russia? Finally, I would like to stay in touch with my wife via e-mail from St. Petersburg after she returns. Does anyone know whether this is possible? Perhaps someone knows an e-mail address for someone at St. Petersburg State University whom I could ask about this in advance?

Taubin" Status: O Dear netters, I am asking for the wise advice on USA visa problems related to my research travel. I am a Russian citizen, and I have been working for 3 years in Aizu university, Japan. Soon, I am going to attend the Design Automation Conference in San-Diego (USA). After the conference, we arranged meetings with people from Stanford and Berkeley Universities. However in the USA Embassy in Tokyo, the US vice-council after a long discussion issued a visa for me only for 7 days (so Berkeley and Stanford tu-tu, the restriction of 7 days is written in ). Even support from my american colleagues (faxes to Emabssy) did not help. So now I have these options: 1. To change the schedule (which is a pity, since both places are of interest to me) 2. To go to USA and stay for 10 days and then hope that nobody will check on the way back (but probably the tickets can be checked on the way to, and also I have no experience what will be if the customer will find the delay in my stay) 3. I can try to prolong the visa being in USA, but do not know where, what are the chances and so on. So my questions concern the options 2 and 3; does anybody has any experience?

Status: O Dear IR-netties, This is my regular "updated-list-is-coming" posting. This INFO-RUSS net started on Aug. 15'91 with about 40 addresses. I am going to broadcast a new (26-th) updated list of names&addresses (about 915 now) within next 24 hours. After the list was broadcasted by me last time two months ago, quite a few people subscribed anew and some unsubscribed or has been disconnected by me (mostly because of technical reason -- closed accounts, etc.). Although there is a natural in-and-out flow of subscribers, my estimate is that at this point we have 71% active subscribers of the total number of people who've ever showed up at the INFO-RUSS. So, I guess we have here a pretty loyal (and large at that:-) body of info-russ-loving subscribers:-). The list is broken into geo-sections: AMERICA (US+Canada), ISRAEL, EUROPE (including UK), ex-USSR, AUSTRALIA, South AFRICA, JAPAN, BRAZIL, MEXICO, and OTHERS. Be aware, it is 64+ kb long. Now, folks, a few people asked me to broadcast only CHANGES in the list, not the entire list itself. I made a little experiment, and realized that it takes quite a lot of time to incorporate the changes into the old list, especially if you are not an experienced computer hacker who can make a little program to merge (sort) the old list with the new one based on the alphabet priority with the key names appearing only in the end of line, or if you don't have at least a mouse. Given a huge number of barely-familiar-with- computer subscribers on this net, I decided to continue my old practice of broadcasting a full list. It would also be taxing a lot of my time if I make separate distribution lists (and just for such occasions) for the IR-list. So those of you who asked me for the new list format, please accept my apology: you'll have to live with the old arrangement. Bear in mind, please, that the list is broadcasted not too often; I hope once in two months is a bearable frequency for 64 kb files. The list must not be used for commercial or any other unauthorized purposes. --Best --Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator >From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sun May 22 21:58:01 EDT 1994 Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Precedence: bulk Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA12693; Sun, 22 May 94 21:57:57 -0400 Message-Id: <9405230157.AA12693@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> From: sasha@smarty.ece.jhu.edu (Alexander E.

As the name implies, WRTS' principal source is shortwave radio broadcasts which are consistently monitored from which verbatim country reports are prepared frequently within a day or two of the original date of transmission. Currently, those stations include Radio Moscow World Service (including its 20-minute feature news programme heard on weekdays, "Commonwealth Update"), China Radio International in Beijing, Radio Japan/NHK's half-hour programme, "News Round," also on weekdays and finally Radio Habana Cuba. In the past, however, others have included Radio Exterior de Espana, Radio Nederland and Swiss Radio International. In the future more will no doubt be added. In all cases, written permission has been given to WRTS to prepare the reports which total over 2000 to date. In addition to receiving several files each week, subscribers will have free, unlimited access to WRTS' archives for the duration of the subscription. All news items have been indexed in an electronic database which supports boolean searching through a number of access points -- date and time of broadcast, source, nation(s) involved, region, general subject heading and keywords within the text. Upon receipt of a request, a report will be sent off within a week. For those wishing in sampling this service, a trial offer lasting a week is available at no cost and with no obligation.

There have been a number of indications that the telephone companies operating the NAPs will seek permission from NSF to price NAPs services according to some measure of Internet usage. The vBNS is expected to act as a testbed for new Internet pricing and accounting schemes. The letter expresses the view that metered pricing of Internet usage should be avoided, and that NSF should ensure that the free flow of information through Internet listserves and file server sites is preserved and enhanced.

The chemist Vil Mirzayanov, who was detained and charged with disclosing state secrets after speaking out on the Soviet, and Russian, chemical weapons program, has won a lawsuit against state prosecutors and his former employer. Mirzayanov is to receive some 30 million rubles in compensation for his lost wages and time spent in prison awaiting trial. (The case was eventually dismissed.) According to the Baltimore Sun of 9 June, the decision is a landmark in that it is the first time a Russian citizen has won a suit of this nature against the government. Mirzayanov noted, however, that he is still being denied a passport and the right to travel abroad.

So I am sorry if as a member of both of them, you received it twice. We are looking for one or two post-docs (or visiting scientists) theorists and one experimentalist in the field of nonlinear optics. "We" are my research group at the Electr. & Comp. Eng. Dept. at the Johns Hopkins Univ. in Baltimore, Maryland. These positions are supposed to be one-year appointments, with possible extension, subject to fund availability and performance. The major requirement for a theorist is a strong background in theoretical nonlinear optics and/or quantum electronics. The major lines of research will be (i) the theory of very fast processes in atoms and ions (including multi-photon and tunnel photo-ionization and recombination) under the action of very strong optical (and X-ray) fields, both coherent and with broad-band spectrum), nonlinear propagation (in particular in plasmas) of very short pulses and solitons, their interaction with matter, etc. (ii)interaction of relativistic electron beams with very strong laser fields. Potential theoretical candidates is required to be fluent in general Quant. Electronics and Nonlin. Optics (at the level of e. g. A. Yariv's book "QE"), classical field theory (at the level of e. g. Jackson or Landau& Livshitz), and have a solid working knowledge on the soliton theory and/or theory of radiation by relativistic electrons (at least J or L&L). A strong math background is a must (in particular, the theory of ordinary nonlinear differential equations, including the theory a phase portrait, Floquet theory of the equations with periodically varying parameters; and partial diff. equations. Good working knowledge of the theory of nonlinear propagation equations (such as e. g. nonlinear Schroedinger) is a great plus. Fluent knowledge of computers and numerical simulation techniques is an absolute must (must be fully versed in Fortran and/or "C", work in UNIX, and use math libraries, such as e. g. IMSL). A great plus is hands-on working knowledge of (3+1)D propagation codes. The major requirement for an experimentalist is a strong background in experimental nonlinear optics and/or quantum electronics and intimate hands-on experience with the American research technology, first of all lasers (a good working experience with Nd:YAG is a plus) and other experimental tools (including computers, numerical simulations, and interfaces to experimental devices) is a requirement. The major line of research will be biological nonlinear optics (we will be collaborating on the subject with the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, one of the best in the country). Research experience with nonlinear optical effects (such as e. g. two-photon induced fluorescence) in dye molecules or biological objects and/or dynamic molecular spectroscopy is a great plus. The potential candidates must be fluent in (at least) technical English (both conversational and writing), and be able to write technical report and papers. A good publishing record is a plus. The list of references is required, listed with their addresses and phone numbers (you need to have at least some references in the US). The preference will be given to people who have an American experience and a proper visa and work (or study) authorization. (I would encourage you to apply anyway, in particular if you are recent emigre or refugee.) The projected starting time for a theorist is September-October'94, (although it could be negotiable), whereas for an experimentalist it is October-November'94. The salary in both cases depends on qualification. Please send in your Curriculum Vita (only hard-copy; no e-mail copies, please; include also your address & telephone) with the list of your publications and with clear indication of your visa or immigration status, cover letter with whatever else you may want to add to your CV, some selected publications, and the list of your references to Dr. Peter Shkolnikov, Dept. of Electr. & Comp. Eng., The Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St., Baltimore, MD 21218, USA, Send also a very brief e-mail msg to him for us to acknowledge receipt of your papers. (This will also enable us to communicate with you later on regarding your application.) We are planning to review all the applications and make a short list of candidates in the beginning to middle of August'94. --Best, Alex Kaplan Alexander E.

I saw on C-SPAN last night that the House passed the Defense Authorization Bill -- which I believe included the $900M cut in University DoD Research spending. Not good news. --Thanks, Mike Colleagues, I wanted to bring some disturbing news to your immediate attention. Apparently, the House of Representatives is moving to cut over half (62%) of DoD funded academic research. $1.47B was spent on defense spending at colleges and universities in fiscal year 1994, and President Clinton proposed $1.46B for such in fiscal year 1995. A House subcommittee that controls Defense Dept. spending recommended that $900M be cut from this budget. As discussed in an article in the June 29th issue of the Chronicle of Higher Education (Government and Politics section), the man who is strongly pushing for the cut is Rep. John Murtha (D,PA), the Head of the aforementioned committee. Re. Murtha is a big proponent of earmarks -- in 1993 he earmarked $38M in DoD money for four schools in his district including Mount Aloysius College and Saint Francis College. Rep. Murtha (D,PA) is reportedly mad that universities have not shown appreciation for his past support of academic research and did not publicly support him in a fight over pork barrel money that he had with Rep. George Brown (D,CA) -- Brown is against earmarked funds. Here are the e-mail addresses for President Clinton and Vice-President Gore: Clinton= PRESIDENT@WHITEHOUSE.GOV Gore = VICE.PRESIDENT@WHITEHOUSE.GOV It may be worthwhile to write a short note expressing grave concern on how this would impact universities and basic research for the military, and try to get colleagues at other universities to do the same. If Clinton's staff gets enough e-mail about this, they may bring it to his attention. More important would be to contact your local congressional representatives about this. --Mike Michael D.
