V. B.) My computer has packed up completely. He was dying slowly for the last couple of weeks, and I had to witness his agony, wringing my hands. First, he refused to go on the Internet, than he refused to deliver E-mail, later he stopped sending faxes. And each time he would come up with different excuses, one more ridiculous than the other. For example, he could suddenly and sternly warn me: "You have performed an illegal operation! Your program will be terminated". And I would feel deeply offended: "What did you say?", I would scream, "Say it again, bastard, and I will smash your interface!" No one, not even the KGB would ever dare to tell me that I performed anything illegal. Then, perhaps being scared by my threats, he would calmly inform me: "Error 723". No further comments. Go and guess what does it mean. Where the hell is that list of errors he must be referring to? And I would launch a wild goose chase of any file with the name "error" or "list", "errorlist", "listerror", etc. All in vain. This, however, was only a beginning. Next came a stage when he would behave as if he suffered from multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer's disease. "Can not find MAPI32.DU.23 file!" - he would whimper, as if it was all my fault. "Can not run this command. ODI/NDISA Mapper Version 2.0 could not be found". This made me angry. "Is this my problem? I didn't lose no MAPI, why telling this to me? You have lost it, you go and find it" Nevertheless, being soft-hearted the way I am, I would search the directories and find the damned MAPI, sitting exactly where it should and bothering no one in particular. So, if I could find this bloody MAPI, why can't he? Is he blind? Do they dislike each other? God is my witness, I have tried everything to attract his attention to the poor MAPI. I tried to introduce them through a special dating agency (a command called "associate"). They did not want to. I even brought them together in an empty dark directory, and left them there alone overnight, hoping they might get acquainted. Or, with a bit of luck, even might fall in love. (By that stage, all moral considerations were already very far from my mind). But next morning, like a feckless lover, he would tell me again he knows no MAPI. Never even heard of him (her). What else could I do? Invite a priest and get them married? Only much later did I learn that it all could have been due to the plots of perfidious and cunning AWSNTO32.EXE, who was sitting and sulking all the time in a far corner of a totally different directory. By that stage I was doing what all of us, victims of the computer industry, are forced to do: I was calling my friends all over the globe hoping that a friend of a friend of a friend might turn out to be a good computer expert. Pretty much like we do when a close friend gets seriously ill, and in both cases it suddenly transpires that there are no really good doctors on our planet. Each and every gave me totally different advice - Australians wanted me to kick it, Americans suggested I should buy a new one and the Germans firmly believed in reading as many books on the subject as could be found in a book store. Suspicions about the awesome AWSNTO32.EXE conspiracy came from Moscow where people tend to believe in plots. So do I. Only I tend to blame the computer industry and the psychological game they play with us. What is a computer, after all? Overglorified domestic appliance, a consumer product which should be as easy to handle as a vacuum cleaner. You buy it, you bring it home, you switch it on and work. Just imagine an ordinary family, who bought a refrigerator and then for several weeks tries to figure out how to use it, reads numerous instructions (written as a rule by a Martian with no proper knowledge of earthly languages), seeks advice from friends overseas, buys more books (also written in some rare dialect of Swahili), and still cannot make heads or tails out of it. Naturally in such case, the refrigerator manufacturers very quickly would have been ruined by law suits, overwhelmed by complaints and closed down by some trade standards commission or other. And quite rightly so. If you market your product for mass consumption, you should make it simple enough for an ordinary consumer to operate. The truth is, however, that the computer industry, in order to maximise their profits, markets today a semi-product which even the best professionals find hard to use. But we don't complain, oh no! We are caught in some sort of psychological game, in which your ability to cope with this space age technology is perceived as some sort of an IQ test. Naturally, no one wants to admit a failure. No one wants to be looked upon as a hillbilly. Meanwhile, the drama was rapidly approaching its culmination. On Sunday morning, (why, oh why the worst crisis of our life always happens during a weekend?), I switched on, unsuspecting as a child, and got a stunning, desperate plea: "Invalid VxD dynamic link called from NTKERN(OB)+000000AC to device "VMM", service 199". And the wretched machine switched off completely. I stared into the darkness of the screen, like an astronaut who has just lost contact with Earth forever. What should I do now? Quietly bury him in the garden? But what if a last spark of life is still flickering somewhere in his chips? I did not sleep that night. Lost in recollections of better moments in our relations, holding him by the cold, lifeless mouse, pleading with him to come around, I must have grieved more than one usually does over the death of one's child. And, of course, an acute sense of guilt haunted me till dawn. "What did I do wrong? It must be my impatience, my anger, my insensitivity which killed him". First thing in the morning, I wrapped him in a blanket (lest he catches cold in the damp English weather), carefully brought him into a taxi and dashed to the shop where I bought him only a month ago. "He must have died of progressive paralysis like comrade Lenin", I said to an engineer. He looked at me with a warm smile. "No, no, he isn't dead. Not yet", he said. "Really?" My joy knew no boundaries. "Is he in pain? Can you do something?" "Of course", he said, "This is what I am here for. By the way, did you install recently the Internet Explorer 4.01 by any chance?" "I did. It was sent by our provider to everyone who had the previous version". "That's it, then. At least half of those who did have had a system crash". I went back home greatly relieved: after all, it was not my fault. I did not inflict all that suffering on him and myself. But what about that damned, bloody, flipping Microsoft? Will anyone ever punish them bastards properly? And for the first time I felt sympathy with Clinton administration: I really wished they send a cruise missile or two to the Microsoft's headquarters. Or, at the very least, shoved the whole box of large cigars up their back door. Have a good New Year! V.

Under the sanctions, the Scientific Research and Design Institute of Power Technology, the Mendeleev University of Chemical Technology, and the Moscow Aviation Institute will not be allowed to export or import goods to or from the U.S. or receive U.S. government assistance. Last July, the U.S. imposed sanctions on seven Russian research and manufacturing enterprises for the same reason. In his remarks, Berger acknowledged that Russian "weapons scientists and institutions face increased financial pressure to sell their wares to whomever is in the market" but that "the most effective shield against proliferation from Russia is not U.S. penalties but a Russian export control system that is designed to work and does."

I guess times do not really change. Decide for yourself. 36 percent of Russian callers in favor of emigration of Jews By Lev Krichevsky MOSCOW, Jan. 21 (JTA) -- Many Russians believe life here would be better if it were not for the Jews. Some 36 percent of recent callers to a Moscow radio station said Russia would benefit if all Jews left for Israel. The radio station said a record number of 3,100 people called to voice their opinion on the issue Thursday during the daily show of the Moscow Echo radio station. The station posed the question about Jewish emigration after Israeli Foreign Minister Ariel Sharon, who visited Russia this week, urged Jews from Russia and other former Soviet states to immigrate to Israel. Concern about Russian attitudes toward Jews has prompted American Jewish activists to bring the issue to top U.S. officials. U.S. Secretary of State Madeleine Albright told American Jewish officials on Thursday that she would discuss the recent rise in Russian anti-Semitism during a visit to Moscow that was scheduled to start Sunday. In addition to raising the issue with Russian Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov, she said she will appeal directly to the Russian people to exercise greater tolerance and oppose anti-Semitism. Albright also told the group that while she is planning discussions with opposition lawmakers, she will not meet with Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov because of his recent anti-Semitic remarks. Last fall, two other Russian legislators from the Communist Party made a series of anti-Semitic comments. Drawing international condemnation as well as criticism from President Boris Yeltsin's government, the Russian Parliament failed to condemn those remarks. At a meeting in Washington on Thursday, the National Conference on Soviet Jewry and the Anti-Defamation League presented Albright with a paper on anti-Semitism detailing specific steps Russian leaders should take to combat the phenomenon. The ADL plans to conduct a poll on anti-Semitic attitudes among Russians in the coming weeks. In Moscow, meanwhile, Sharon discussed the Middle East peace process with Primakov. Primakov told Sharon that Russia wanted to play a more active role in the region. Primakov, a longtime Middle East expert who is known as an Arabist, said Russia strongly supported the land-for-peace formula in the Israeli-Palestinian peace settlement. Sharon welcomed Russia's desire to revive its influence in the region and said Moscow should use its close ties with the Palestinians to prevent the Palestinian Authority from taking unilateral steps, such as declaring independence. Sharon and his Russian hosts also discussed bilateral relations, the rise of anti-Semitism in Russia and security issues, including international terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction in the Middle East. In talks with Primakov and Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov, Sharon touched on the sensitive issue of Russian help for Iran's nuclear and missile programs. Last week, the United States imposed sanctions against three Russian scientific institutes, accusing them of helping Tehran with dual-use technologies. Last July, the U.S. imposed sanctions on seven Russian research and manufacturing enterprises for the same reason. Russia categorically denied the accusations. Some officials maintained that the sanctioned entities could not have supplied sensitive technology to Iran since such technology is not available to them. Moscow says it is helping Iran to build a nuclear plant but that the program has no military purpose and does not violate any international non-proliferation agreements. Concerning the recent surge of anti-Semitic incidents, Sharon said his hosts strongly condemned anti-Semitism. He especially praised Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov for his ``firm stand" on the matter. Sharon said, however, that he did not believe Russia was doing everything possible to curb anti-Semitism. ``I told [Russian leaders] that it is not enough to voice protest. Concrete acts should be performed.'' ----------------------------------------------------------- From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sun Jan 24 16:36 EST 1999 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu (smarty.ece.jhu.edu [128.220.14.60]) by jfet.ece.jhu.edu (8.9.1/8.9.1) with SMTP id QAA16120 for ; Sun, 24 Jan 1999 16:36:28 -0500 (EST) Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA26882; Sun, 24 Jan 99 15:31:48 -0500 Message-Id: <9901242031.AA26882@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Date: Sun, 24 Jan 1999 15:25:49 +0200 From: Boris Zemlyak To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: Job for Biologist in Silicon Valley Status: O Content-Type: text Content-Length: 914 --------------------------------------------------------------------- This is INFO-RUSS broadcast (1200+ subscribers).

Mikhail Seslavinsky, the chief of Russia's Federal Television and Radio Service, warned VOA, the British Broadcasting Corp., Germany's Deutsche Welle and several other foreign broadcasters that they have less than a month to apply for the licenses, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported. Seslavinsky added that the threatened moves shouldn't be seen as a return to the Soviet-style practice of jamming foreign broadcasts. ``We have no complaints whatsoever against the form or contents of those broadcasters' programs,'' he said. ``It would be wrong to interpret our action as an attempt to drive them from the territory of Russia or its air.'' He called on all foreign broadcasters to follow the example of the American Radio Liberty, which got a government license last summer. The deadline for getting the license is Feb. 20, Seslavinsky said. * Copyright 1999 The Associated Press ==================================================== c/o Feodor Brazhnikov & Fedor Babanine IRKUTSK DX CLUB Address: P.O.Box 3036, Irkutsk-59, 664059, Russia phone : +7 (3952) 388-964 E-mail: radio@tugr.irkutsk.su WEB site: http://www.icc.ru/radio E-autoresponder: dx@irkutsk.com From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Thu Jan 28 19:32 EST 1999 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu (smarty.ece.jhu.edu [128.220.14.60]) by jfet.ece.jhu.edu (8.9.1/8.9.1) with SMTP id TAA05528 for ; Thu, 28 Jan 1999 19:32:48 -0500 (EST) Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA00400; Thu, 28 Jan 99 17:14:36 -0500 Message-Id: <9901282214.AA00400@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Date: Thu, 28 Jan 1999 12:59:31 +0100 To: "Oleg V.

Although Czech Republic's GDP shrank 1.5% in 1998, IMF sees a recovery bringing GDP growth up to 1% next year. IMF predicts sizeable economic contraction of Russian economy in 1999. The most recent issue of the IMF's World Economic Outlook forecasts that Russian GDP will contract 8.3% in 1999. Already 1998 GDP is expected to shrink 5.7%. IMF also sees a risk that Russian economy could contract even further beyond the current gloomy outlook if economic reforms are cancelled and the imbalance in public finances is allowed to deteriorate even further. Inflation is expected to rise to 56% in 1999. Contraction of Ukraine's economy should also accelerate. IMF forecasts GDP will fall 3.5% in 1999, when contraction was 1.7% in 1998. Annual inflation is seen rising to 38%. Among the Baltics, IMF foresees fastest economic growth in Latvia. 1999 GDP growth for Latvia should be 5% (6% in 1998), Lithuania 4% (5.3%) and Estonia 3.6% (5.1%). Inflation should remain modest throughout the Baltics. The Outlook lists the following inflation rates for 1999: Latvia 4% (5% in 1998), Lithuania 5% (5%) and Estonia 6% (11%).

This posting is to announce the first (and not just on Internet!) publication of "Soviet Archives" by Vladimir Bukovsky. It is a huge collection of documents directly copied from archives of KPSS (former communist party of former Sov Union) and KGB ("Komitet of Gosudarstevennoi Bezopasnosti") Here is its URL: http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/BUK/GBARC/buk.html or you can go to INFO-RUSS http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS and click at "Bukovsky's "Soviet Archives" (KGB & KPSS) at INFO-RUSS" A sampling of these documents and related political essay will be published by V. Bukovsky in English in 1999 in a book "Judgement Day" or "Reckoning with Moscow", political essay based on his visit to Russia in 1992. During that visit he was invited by the authorities to testify at the trial conducted by the Supreme Court of Russia and intended to determine whether KPSS has been a criminal institution, and the legality of the KPSS in new Russia. To prepare for this testimony, Bukovsky requested and was granted access to large number of documents prepared by the offices of former Central Committee of KPSS and by KGB. In a short time given him for browsing through the documents, he managed to secretly scan a great deal of documents from that collection, using a hand-held tiny scanner (one of those used for the scanning of a single newspaper column). After he brought back many-many floppy disks with files, each left half-page file should have beed "stitched" with its right twin. In this new publication on info-russ web-pages, ALL these copies are published for the first time. The tantalizing job of matching half-page pieces together, systematic arrangement of all the copies and their catalogization, and uploading the resulting files and directories from the personal computer to INFO-RUSS server, is a collective work of three people - V. Bukovsky, L. Chernikhov and Julia Zaks, and took them about two years. My own little help was locating the space for the archive and providing computer support (and daily moral encouragement, of course:-):-). The initiative of starting this endeavor (of which she most likely regretted many times:-) belonged to Julia Zaks, a "veteran" emigre, whose dissident activity track in Moscow goes back 30+ years. L. Chernikhov who joined the work at a later stage, did a great job on re-organizing the documents according to the subject and cross-referencing it. They did it out of belief "that these "black" pages of Soviet history should be in the public domain"... The e-mail addresses of both of them are found on the archive pages. The full archive space as of right now comes close to 200 Mb. For those of you who know little about Vladimir Bukovsky, here is his brief bio-sketch (mostly due to KGB sources:-), see section 7.1, Dissidents, documents #0053 and #0082-0086 in that archive). June 1963 - ct.70-1, organizing "poetry" meetings next to the Mayakovsky monument in Moscow; sent to psychiatric ward (instead of prison), freed in February 1964 January 1965 - arrested for organizing a demonstration in defense of Ginzburg, Glanskov and others ( 190-1, 3 years of imprisonment), was freed in January 1970 January 1972 - arrested for contacts with foreign correspondents, distribution of samizdat documents on psychiatric violations, human rights, etc. (70-1, 7 years of imprisonment plus 5 years in exile) December 1976, while in prison, Bukovsky was exchanged for Chilean communist Lois Karvalan. (A little street joke at the time: "obmenyali huligana na Luisa Karvalana":-) Since 1976, he lives in Cambridge, England. Bukovsky is the author of a few books: "Soul of Man Under Socialism" 1979 "To Build a Castle-My Life As a Dissenter" 1979 "Soviet Hypocrisy and Western Gullibility" 1987 "Judgement Day" (Amer) or "Reckoning with Moscow" (England) and political essay based on analyses of the "Soviet Archives" (posted now on INFO-RUSS) It was first published in Russian & French . in 1996 as "Moscow Process" and will be available in 1999 in English as "Judgement Day" (US) or "Reckoning with Moscow" (England) The archive is intended for a very broad audience. It is for you folks. Come in and look at the "pretty commy-face" without mascara, of the system under which you've been living... It is for former "dissies" (dissidents...); smell that stale odor of the machinery that tried to mill you down... It is for academia people: historians, sovetologists, etc. Never too late to learn what was in reality behind the door that used to be convincingly painted by your logical theories... It is for Russia and the world to remember and to learn. Everybody seems to be so sure this will never happened again; will it not? -- Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator sasha@smarty.ece.jhu.edu INFO-RUSS server: http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/inforuss.html ========================================================================= A message from V. Bukovsky, Julia Zaks, and L. Chernikhov, publishers of "Bukovsky's "Soviet Archives" at INFO-RUSS" To all the users: Feel free to use and copy the archive and/or any portion of it, as long as you acknowledge the source ("Bukovsky's "Soviet Archives" at INFO-RUSS"). Those of you, in particular academia & research people and libraries, who instead of copying the archive from the Internet, would like to have a CD with the full copy of it, may want to know that we have donated the rights for distribution of the full CD copy of the archive (about 200 Mb) to the "Gratitude Fund" (GF). GF is intended to help ex-dissidents currently living in Russia. Hundreds of former political prisoners and dissidents, those who contributed greatly to the collapse of the communist rule and promoted democracy in Russia. are unjustly forgotten. Many of them are poverty-stricken in the economic chaos of the post-communist Russia. GF was created to provide assistance to them. So, if you would like to request a CD copy of "Soviet Archives" please contact Yuri Fedorov, GF president (Yuri@eclipse.net). Best regards, V. Bukovsky Julia Zaks YZaks@compuserve.com (web-master of the archive) L.

Yuri Fedorov (e-mail: Yuri@eclipse.net ) ========================================================== Dear friends! "The Gratitude Fund (or GF)" was created in summer 1998. Its board of directors consists of former dissidents scattered around the world: Yuri Fedorov, president (NYC, USA) Vladimir Bukovsky (England) Alexandr Ginsburg (France) Eduard Kuznetsov (Israel) Yuri Yarim-Agaev (USA) As you may know, many former political prisoners and dissidents who contributed greatly to the collapse of communist rule and paved the way to democracy in Russia, have now been unjustly forgotten. Their poverty-stricken existence in the economic chaos of the post-communist Russia is a sad reminder to those of us who were direct or indirect beneficiaries of their struggle and sacrifices. The general propose of the GF as an organization is to provide assistance to the veterans of the struggle for freedom and human rights in the former Soviet Union. The board of the GF directors would like to let you know that it has now its own website (thanks to Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS coordinator): http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/BUK/GBARC/gf/gfund-main.html At the present time the website contains just general information but we hope in time to be able to place information about GF's work and special events, and about individual veterans of human rights movement. Any questions, suggestion related to the GFund or its website will be appreciated.

As you are aware, ships have long been characterised as being female (e.g., "Steady as she goes", or "She's listing to starboard,Captain!"). Recently, a group of computer scientists (all males) announced that computers should also be referred to as being female. Their reasons for drawing this conclusion follow: No one but the Creator understands their internal logic. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else. The message "Bad command or file name" is about as informative as, "If you don't know why I'm mad at you, then I'm certainly not going to tell you". Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find your- self spending half your salary on accessories for it.

The Israeli embassy said in a statement that Vladimir Putin, head of the Federal Security Service (FSB), had allowed Sharansky to view his KGB file and take home copies of several documents. Sharansky, a leading campaigner for Jewish emigration rights in the Soviet Union in the 1970s, was charged with spying for the United States in 1977 and became one of Moscow's best known political prisoners. He left Russia after being released in an East-West prisoner exchange in 1986 and was received as a hero in Israel. He returned to Moscow more than a decade later as a member of the cabinet of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. On his first trip back to Moscow in 1997, he visited the Lefortovo prison where he had spent a year and a half in isolation. He described the jail as ``the most important university I studied at in my life.'' He has since traveled to Moscow several times.

This meeting is going to be very big, 8-9K people. Many of us will meet old friends there. I think that it will be very helpful to coordinate the information about the presence of Russian scientists at the meeting. Again, the people you know may be there, but its hard to bump into each other in this huge crowd. So, I propose to post a sign-up sheet for Russian-speaking community on one of the announcement boards where the attendees would sign there name and, say, hotel where they are staying. This will make it easier to contact each other and facilitate contacts or just hanging out together. Also, this should be helpful for people coming from Russia and other countries. I'd post such a sign-up sheet myself, the only problem is that I'm coming in late, on 22nd, while the Meeting starts on 20th. Would anybody volunteer to post it? What I can also do is collect the names of the people who want to get together at the Meeting, by e-mail, and then pass it on to the person who would volunter to be a coordinator at the Meeting. Thank you and see you in Atlanta.

GORDON MOSCOW -- Like many of Russia's Jews, Anatoly Vugman would like to stay in Russia. But since the financial crisis hit last August, the 20-year-old student has begun to hedge his bets by attending evening Hebrew classes. Vugman has plenty of company. With the economy distressed and political extremists making anti-Semitic tirades, enrollment in Hebrew classes here has tripled in the last year. Some students have already decided to move to Israel, while others simply want to know the language of their ancestors. Then there are Jews like Vugman, an earnest young man with wire-rim glasses, who seem to be in a quandary about their future. The demise of the Soviet Union in 1991 opened a fresh chapter for Russia's Jews. Synagogues and yeshivas started up. The top echelons of government and finance were opened to people of Jewish descent. But Russia's Jews are now facing a collapsing economy as well as the fresh burst of anti-Semitic statements. For the first time in nearly a decade, emigration from Russia to Israel is starting to climb. Though relatively modest, the number of Jews leaving for Israel in January, 1,774, was 70 percent higher than the 975 who left in January of last year. While many Jews want to remain in Russia, there is a growing realization that they will have to fight the old battles against anti-Semitism all over again. The fears are more acute in Russia's provinces. Just Monday, Jews in Novosibirsk reported that the lone synagogue in that Siberian city had been vandalized and swastiskas painted on the walls. But many Jews in Moscow and in liberal St. Petersburg are also on edge. "Of course, things were worse in Soviet times," said Zinaida, 70, a retired woman who was waiting for a meeting at Moscow's Choral Synagogue and declined to give her last name. "But now anti-Semitism is again threatening us and our children." Russia has never been an easy place for Jews. Under the czars there were restrictions on where Jews could live, and violent pogroms. During Soviet times Jews often filled the professional ranks, but they were generally barred from leading universities and from top jobs. Worship was suppressed. Jews were identified as a separate nationality in internal passports. The collapse of the Soviet Union unleashed a virtual tidal wave of emigration. So many Jews have intermarried and assimilated that estimating how many remain in Russia is an arcane science. Mark Kupovetsky, a demographer at the Jewish studies program at the Russian State University for the Humanities in Moscow, says there is a "core" Jewish population of 332,000. That figure is derived, in part, from the number who described themselves as Jewish in the last Soviet census. The estimate increases severalfold if it includes those with a Jewish parent or grandparent -- important because Israel accepts immigrants who can show that at least one grandparent is Jewish. While Jews represent only a small fraction of the country's 147 million people, their status has long been taken as a measure of Russia's struggle to build a more democratic and tolerant society. In recent years, in fact, the situation for Jews has largely been considered to be a Russian success story. Jews have used their new freedoms to reclaim their heritage. Moscow State University recently began a joint program of Jewish studies with Hebrew University. To the tune of "Hava Nagilah," ads for matzo appeared on Russian television during Passover. Nationalist politicians have also been free, however, to exploit Russia's deep undercurrent of anti-Semitism, which they have done more frequently since the financial collapse last August. "Russia has never known democracy, and democracy is a very intricate thing to put so suddenly on the shoulders of millions who are used to the tradition of a strong hand," said Tankred Golenpolsky, the editor of the Jewish Gazetta, a Moscow-based publication. "In the old days they used to keep horses in the mines and not take them out until they got old," he added. "When they did they would have to cover their eyes or they would go blind. Well, Russia is like a horse that has been taken out without his eyes covered and is running around and shouting whatever it wants." Jews have certainly been a very visible target. Much of the government team that has guided Russia's painful transition to a market economy is of Jewish ancestry, as are many of the country's bankers and tycoons, though few are practicing Jews. Sergei V. Kiriyenko, the former prime minister, who adopted his mother's Ukrainian family name, is part Jewish, as are the former Kremlin aides Boris Y. Nemtsov and Anatoly B. Chubais. Yegor T. Gaidar, the former prime minister who promoted a free market, also has some Jewish ancestors. But then Jews have also been on different sides of the debate, a fact overlooked by Russian militant nationalists. Grigory A. Yavlinksy, the head of the Yabloko Party, who is part Jewish, has long assailed the Yeltsin government for its halfhearted support of economic reform. One of the most strident nationalists, Vladimir V. Zhirinovsky, and Yevgeny M. Primakov, the cautious prime minister, also have Jewish roots. Neither Zhirinovsky nor Primakov has ever been assailed by anti-Semites, which Jewish leaders say shows that the recent wave of anti-Semitism is part of a broader assault on the Western and pro-capitalist attitudes epitomized by Russia's more liberal Jews. Many Jews in fact believe that their acceptance in Russian society will ultimately depend on the nation's ability to develop a capitalist democracy with rising living standards and Western-style legal protections. "The future for Jews in Russia depends on the success of economic reform," said Kupovetsky. It is the virulent anti-Semitic tirades of extremists like Albert Makashov, a Communist legislator and former general, that have alarmed many Jews. He recently gave a fiery address in the southern Russian town of Novocherkassk in which he virtually invited Cossacks to ramsack Jewish homes. "They are so brave and cheeky because we are dormant so far," he said. Another self-proclaimed anti-Semite is Aleksandr Barkashov, the leader of the neo-Fascist group, Russian National Unity, whose emblem resembles a swastika. He recently told a rally in Yekaterinburg that he was changing the name of his political groups to "Movement Against the Jews." Viktor Ilyukhkin, chairman of the Parliament's defense committee and a Communist, has charged that Yeltsin and Jewish members of his "inner circle" are committing "genocide" against the Russian people. Public opinion polls indicate that these extremists do not speak for most Russians. And many Russians Jews say that their situation is not as bad as that of other groups. "The average Russian is more upset about the presence of Caucasians in Moscow than about Jews," said Rashid Kaplanov, the president of Sefer, a Moscow-based center of Jewish studies, referring to the people from the southern Caucasus mountains region. "Still, one does feel vulnerable." The main worry for Russia's Jewish leaders is that the barrage of from the extremists will begin to stir up ordinary Russians, particularly in the provinces. In Novosibirsk, where the report came Monday that the synagogue had been vandalized over the weekend, a new rabbi, Shnaior Zalman Zaklos, had arrived only 10 days before. Miriam Zaklos, his wife, said in an telephone interview Monday that prayer books were torn up, and Torah religious scrolls were ripped. The name of the neo-fascist group, Russian National Unity, was painted on the walls. Russian National Unity has also distributed virulently anti-Semitic material in Borovichi, a town of 70,000 people 240 miles north of Moscow. "At least in Moscow there's some regulation," Eduard Alekseyev, the 29-year-old leader of the local Jewish Association, said in a telephone interview. "Here swastikas are legal. Its legal to say, 'Yids Get Out.' " Jewish fears have been aggravated by the mixed response from mainstream politicians. President Boris N. Yeltsin has denounced anti-Semitism, and Mayor Yuri M. Luzhkov of Moscow has banned marches by fascist groups. But the Communist-led Parliament has refused to censure Makashov. Gennady Zyuganov, the Communist leader, has criticized Makashov for his "intemperance" but in an appeal to national sentiment has also implied at times that Russians of Jewish origin are overrepresented in government and finance. Or, as Zyuganov put it, "Too many people with strange-sounding family names mingle in the internal affairs of Russia." Jews themselves are not always certain about how to fight the problem. Vladimir A. Gusinsky, a news media tycoon who is the leader of the Russian Jewish Congress, has taken a head-on approach. Gusinsky said in an interview that he had asked the World Economic Forum not to invite Zyuganov to its conference in Davos, Switzerland, because of his failure to condemn the anti-Jewish remarks by Makashov. Zyuganov, in fact, was not invited this year, though organizers of the forum insist his statements regarding Russian Jews were not the reason. Many Jews, however, are uncomfortable with too confrontational a strategy. "There is a dispute between generations," observed Rabbi Pincus Goldschmidt of the Choral Synogogue. "The older generation, which lived under Stalin and survived, believes in bending. It thinks silence is more effective than confrontation. But the young people are ready to fight." One prominent Jewish writer, Eduard Topol, stirred up a stormy debate by publishing an open letter in a Russian newspaper urging Jewish financiers to devote their energies -- and their newly made millions -- to the common good. Topol wrote that such pre-emptive measures would defuse anti-Semitic sentiment, but critics say his letter may encourage the very sentiments he deplores. Some Jews have strayed so far from their traditions, however, that they are not above making anti-Semitic slights themselves. When Nemtsov, the reform-minded Kremlin aide, sought to combat the influence of Russia's tycoons last year, the financier Boris Berezovsky responded with an anti-Semitic jibe. Berezovsky, a Jew who once held an Israeli passport but who christened his infant son in the Russian Orthodox faith, said Nemtsov would never be elected president because his mother was Jewish. Nemtsov, he sneered, has a "purely genetic problem." At the after-school center on Vadkovsky Pereulok, in central Moscow, the worries are palpable. On Sundays, some 700 Russians attend Hebrew classes here and even on weekdays several classrooms are full. Alla Levy, the director of the Moscow office of the Jewish Agency for Israel, which assists Jews in emigrating, says that immigration to Israel could reach 20,000 in 1999, compared with fewer than 15,000 in 1998. That is small compared with the massive wave of emigration that came on the heels of the Soviet Union's demise, but it is still a significant change. Anti-Semitism is just one factor in decisions to emigrate. Before the financial crisis, many young and middle-aged professionals felt they had a better chance of making good in Russia than they would if they started over again in Israel. But now many are worried about building a future for their children. And unlike most of Russia's ethnic groups, Jews have a homeland to which they can go. Viktor Rechistyev, a 38-year-old entrepreneur who is studying Hebrew, declared he had made up his mind to leave. "Russian history here has always been stormy," Rechistyev said. "We have had enough of this." Vugman, a student at one of Moscow's most prestigious management academies, disagreed. "I am a Jew, and I want to know the language of my parents," he said. "But I don't want to live in another country. Anti-Semitism is not the state policy. There is not complete anarchy in the country, and we are not threatened by pogroms. None of that has happened." That brought a sharp retort from Irma Yelasvili, a 28-year-old Jew who moved to Moscow from the former Soviet Republic of Georgia five years ago, "When the pogroms happen, it will be too late to leave. It will be too late." As the class resumed, Vugman seemed to be careworn and tense. "You know my wife is Russian and I am sure her parents would not want her to emigrate to Israel," he added softly. "But maybe in the future we will go to the United States, Canada or Israel, after all." ----------------------------------------------------------- From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Thu Mar 11 16:14 EST 1999 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu (smarty.ece.jhu.edu [128.220.14.60]) by jfet.ece.jhu.edu (8.9.1/8.9.1) with SMTP id QAA15546 for ; Thu, 11 Mar 1999 16:14:01 -0500 (EST) Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA08759; Thu, 11 Mar 99 15:11:35 -0500 Message-Id: <9903112011.AA08759@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu From: "Manwelyan, Julia" To: "'info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu'" Subject: INFO-RUSS: very urgent, MEDICAL Date: Thu, 11 Mar 1999 13:28:36 -0500 Status: OR Content-Type: text Content-Length: 1734 --------------------------------------------------------------------- This is INFO-RUSS broadcast (1200+ subscribers).

She is a young woman, single mother and the only breadwinner for a family of three. It's not much that we can do from here, but one thing that doctor recommended is to provide her with a special nutrition for cancer patients, called ENSURE. She cannot eat and her conditions are miserable to say the least. We bought ENSURE here, they have it in every supermarket, but an air mail is incredibly expensive and slow. We would like to ask if anybody in the US (especially Boston area) is going to St.Petersburg in the near future and willing to bring with you any amount of ENSURE. One pack is 4 pounds. We'll help you to pack it, if you wish, and our friends will pick it up in Russia. WE UNDERSTAND HOW HARD IT IS FOR YOU, TRAVELERS, BUT PLEASE TRY TO MAKE AN EFFORT AND HELP A PERSON IN A DESPERATE SITUATION. We ask also if anybody knows for sure that this substance -- ENSURE - is available in stores in Russia.

After some time, I discovered an exciting new world of whitewater kayaking in the US/Canada. For those who are still unaware, a kayak is a "modern analog" of a familiar "baidarka": it is much more sturdy, much more responsive and nimble, much less heavy, etc. However, I haven't found ANY secondary market (for used kayaks), and very little information on kayak clubs: either family-oriented or sporty/hot dog. I am particularly interested in NJ/NY(PA) area, but would gladly collect/sift through and disseminate your responses to the interested ones on any other parts of the US. Let me throw in some specific questions: 1) Do you know the contact numbers/web sites for the used whitewater/recreational kayaks and gear (paddles, PFD, helmets, etc)? 2) Do you know of any clubs and/or discussion groups related to the river trips?

Need your info-help on medical matter (sorry for using the net for sort of personal matter, but then again, it is on behalf of a friend). I am looking for any advice or pointer to a good doctor (s) in Moscow, who has to be an expert on mammology (term?), both diagnosist and surgeon are needed. It is a breast cancer; the diagnosis is a preliminary one at this point; the results of biopsi will be known in the middle of this week. A patient is 60+ year old lady; she and her family are well aware about realities of life as far as medical services are concerned, so there will be no problems for the doctor to talk to them about business part. If any of my subscribers (or their friends) are doctors, with their field of expertise in the right area, I'd appreciate it if they send me a msg or call me on the phone. I have a few questions I'd like to ask them (I have a brief review in Russian from a doctor who has seen her already).

A flurry of high-level contacts were made between Washington and Moscow after Russia's Interfax news agency reported that Yeltsin had ordered strategic missiles to be aimed at NATO states bombing Yugoslavia. The United States said it had been assured by Moscow that Russia would stay out of the Yugoslavia conflict and had not targeted NATO countries with nuclear weapons. ``We've been officially reassured at a high level that Russia will not be drawn into the conflict in the Balkans,'' White House spokesman Joe Lockhart said. Although the Kremlin denied the missile reports, Yeltsin changed tack dramatically from the hitherto unconditional line that Russia would not be sucked into the Kosovo conflict. ``I told NATO, the Americans, the Germans, don't push us toward military action,'' he said in televised comments during a meeting with parliamentary speaker Gennady Seleznyov. ''Otherwise there will be a European war for sure and possibly world war.'' Seleznyov had also quoted the president, who is under pressure from a hostile parliament weighing his possible impeachment, as saying he supported Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic's request to join the union of Russia and Belarus. Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov was the first to break hours of strange silence on parliamentary speaker Gennady Seleznyov's announcement that President Boris Yeltsin had ordered the retargeting of nuclear missiles at NATO. He denied that any new orders had been given to target NATO countries but fired a barrage of verbal missiles at the military alliance. ``If we assess the situation objectively, we clearly see that with every passing day the NATO operation is increasingly demonstrating its senselessness, both political and military,'' he said, adding that the West had forgotten its aim to resolve the Kosovo conflict. Seleznyov, who visited Belgrade this week, told reporters in the State Duma that a three-way union between Yugoslavia, Belarus and Russia would mean more than just military assistance for Yugoslavia in its fight with NATO. He said: ``I think that our army would be there too, that our navy would be in the appropriate seas.'' As NATO air strikes entered their 17th day, the U.N. refugee agency appeared to have solved the mystery of the 10,000 Kosovo Albanian refugees who went missing Wednesday. The UNHCR said they had been located in Macedonia and neighboring Albania. Britain said more grim reports of atrocities by Yugoslav forces were emerging from Kosovo, including accounts of dead refugees' bodies being burned and buried by the truckload. The defense chief of staff, General Sir Charles Guthrie, said that in one incident there was a mass killing of 35 people in one village. Another report spoke of four truckloads of bodies being buried and one truckload burned, he said. On the ground in Yugoslavia, there was an admission from NATO that one of three bombs aimed at the main telephone exchange (PTT) in the center of the Kosovo capital Pristina struck a residential area. There was no word of any casualties. NATO military spokesman David Wilby said the telephone exchange was a ``critical target'' because it was being used for communications between Serbian forces in the field in Kosovo and the Yugoslav capital Belgrade. He said NATO regretted any loss of civilian life. NATO said its warplanes had destroyed several armored vehicles, a surface-to-air missile site and other Serb forces Thursday morning. But Wilby added that ``the weather has turned against us,'' affecting operations Thursday and Friday. There had been a buildup of Serb forces in northern Kosovo and ``no evidence of withdrawal,'' he said. He did not elaborate. After a 16th straight night of NATO bombing raids, the Yugoslav news agency Tanjug reported that 100 workers had been badly injured when six missiles hit a car and smalls arms factory in the central town of Kragujevac. Workers at the plant, Serbia's biggest employer, had earlier organized a human shield to deter NATO bombing. British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook declared that Yugoslav leader Slobodan Milosevic was feeling the heat and ``looking for a way out'' and signaled that NATO expected a new cease-fire offer from Belgrade this weekend. Cook said the only offer NATO would consider would be a complete capitulation by Milosevic to the alliance's demands for an end to ``ethnic cleansing'' in the rebel Yugoslav province of Kosovo and a return of refugees in safety to their homes. U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan called on Yugoslavia to stop all action by military and paramilitary forces in Kosovo and withdraw them from the Serbian province. The call formed part of a five-point program of commitments to be presented to Belgrade to bring an end to what Annan, in a statement read to reporters in Geneva, called the ``tragedy taking place in and around Kosovo.'' Earlier, Cook said NATO was sending 8,000 ground troops to Albania to deal with the worsening refugee crisis in the Balkans but added that an invasion of Kosovo is ``not going to happen.'' UNHCR spokeswoman Paula Ghedini told reporters at a refugee camp near the Macedonian capital Skopje that the refugees bussed away from a makeshift camp near the Blace border crossing with Yugoslavia had been located. Ghedini said the UNHCR was still looking for their exact location but believed they were in refugee camps in Macedonia and Albania. ``It's just a matter of finding them. There are 320,000 refugees in Albania; it's just a needle in a haystack.'' U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees Sadako Ogata said she feared for the fate of ethnic Albanians prevented by Yugoslav forces from fleeing the southern Serbian province and admitted her body could do nothing to help them. Ogata said U.N. workers could not return to Kosovo for security reasons. ``I am helpless there,'' she said.

At around 3:25 a.m. local time on April 2nd, the monument in Rumbula was damaged by an explosion. By experts estimates it was about 100 grams of TNT. The monument is located at the road turn, road by which Jews were marched in November 1941 from Riga ghetto into the forest. Rumbula is one of many places in Latvia were Jews were executed. Rumbula is the place where even in Soviet times people were gathering to commemorate those who perished, gathering despite the risk of being arrested for unauthorized meeting, expelled from the University. So far the perpetrators are unknown, same as they are still unknown in bombing of Riga Synagogue about a year ago.

In Israel, where the wail of memorial sirens on the annual Holocaust Remembrance Day brought residents to a standstill, images of Albanian refugees fleeing Kosovo brought back memories of Nazi persecution. ``It's very painful for me,'' said Esther Levy, a Holocaust survivor who was born in the troubled Serbian province and is now worried about relatives caught in the crisis. Most of the estimated 400,000 living survivors of the Holocaust reside in Israel. Israeli army doctors, nurses and medics staffing a field hospital in a teeming camp in Macedonia for ethnic Albanian refugees held their own Holocaust memorial ceremony. ``No question the sights we see in this camp and others are reminiscent of those of the past,'' Roni Maor, a physician at the field hospital and the son of Holocaust survivors, told Israel Radio. Elie Wiesel, one of the best-known Holocaust survivors, evoked his experiences at the hands of the Nazis to make an impassioned plea for the world not to ignore the plight of Kosovo's ethnic Albanians. ``This time the world was not silent. This time we did respond. This time we intervened,'' Wiesel said during a visit to the White House in Washington. In Poland, young Israelis and Poles marched side by side along ``The Road of Death'' outside Auschwitz where hundreds of thousands of Jews were gassed to death in the war's most notorious death camp. The young Poles were participating in the annual ``March of the Living'' for the first time, in a bid to improve local awareness of Jewish suffering and to help conquer stereotypes of widespread anti-Semitism in Poland. Of the nearly 3.3 million Jews in Poland before World War II, just 300,000 survived the Holocaust. Modern-day incidents of anti-Semitism were also evident as Jews marked the Holocaust. In Germany, where the Nazi regime engineered the extermination of European Jewry, officials said police were holding an Australian historian accused of making anti-Semitic remarks denying the Holocaust -- a criminal offense in Germany. They said Fredrick Toben was suspected of circulating extreme right-wing material on the Internet and through other publications. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Thu Apr 15 02:08 EDT 1999 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu (smarty.ece.jhu.edu [128.220.14.60]) by jfet.ece.jhu.edu (8.9.1/8.9.1) with SMTP id CAA26257 for ; Thu, 15 Apr 1999 02:08:39 -0400 (EDT) Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA15251; Wed, 14 Apr 99 21:03:31 -0400 Message-Id: <9904150103.AA15251@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Date: Wed, 14 Apr 1999 15:06:57 +0300 From: fyodorov To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: Recent immigrants to Canada Status: O Content-Type: text Content-Length: 1222 --------------------------------------------------------------------- This is INFO-RUSS broadcast (1200+ subscribers).

Underscoring these concerns are reports of multiple sites in Kosovo where large areas of earth have been disturbed, suggesting they may be mass graves, one official told Reuters. ``There are still 100,000 men that we are unable to account for, simply based on the number of men that ought to have accompanied women and children into Macedonia and Albania,'' State Department spokesman James Rubin said. ``Based on past practice, it is chilling to think where those 100,000 men are. We don't know though we know that civilian casualties are the objective of President (Slobodan) Milosevic's policies,'' he said. But a State Department written report on ``ethnic cleansing'' in Kosovo issued Monday said the number of missing men ranges ``from a low of 100,000, looking only at the men missing from among refugee families in Albania, up to nearly 500,000, if reports of widespread separation of men among internally displaced persons within Kosovo are true.'' U.S. officials cautioned they probably would not really know the full extent of the problem until Kosovo was once again opened to international observers. But, said one official, ``There's a tremendous amount of concern that the worst case scenario that many feared has happened.'' He said the United States has reports -- at least two from satellite imagery and others from refugees and members of the Kosovo Liberation Army -- of what may be 43 mass burial sites in Kosovo. These are places where large areas of earth have been disrupted since NATO began its air war against Yugoslavia on March 24. ``We're working to confirm the precise location of mass burial sites through a variety of sources,'' the official said. Authorities are reluctant to make too much information public because it may cause Serbs to try to conceal or destroy any grave sites and thus make it harder to build a case against Serb forces for war crimes prosecution, the official said. U.S. officials said there is good reason to presume the worst about any of the Kosovo Albanians reported missing. Since the NATO air strikes began, Serb forces under Milosevic's control have forced hundreds of thousands of ethnic Albanians out of Kosovo into a life of deprivation and hardship in neighboring poor Balkan countries. There are many reports of rapes and other atrocities, also by Serb forces. Beyond that is the case of Srebrenica, the Bosnian town that fell victim to brutal ethnic cleansing by separatist Serb forces allied with Milosevic during Bosnia's 1992-1995 war. Over a few days in July 1995 thousands of Muslim men were massacred by Serb gunmen, despite the area having been declared a United Nations ``safe haven'' two years earlier. At least 1,400 bodies have been exhumed from mass graves in the region around the eastern town. Thousands of other men are still missing and presumed dead. Undersecretary of State Thomas Pickering told a briefing Monday the United States has heard ``from numerous refugee reports of Serb police now assembling Kosovar Albanians into grave-digging chain gangs, reportedly put in red jackets and forced to dig graves for their countrymen killed by Serbian ethnic cleansing.'' ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Wed Apr 21 14:48 EDT 1999 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu (smarty.ece.jhu.edu [128.220.14.60]) by jfet.ece.jhu.edu (8.9.1/8.9.1) with SMTP id OAA05356 for ; Wed, 21 Apr 1999 14:48:50 -0400 (EDT) Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA07315; Wed, 21 Apr 99 11:48:52 -0400 Message-Id: <9904211548.AA07315@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu From: "Julius Gutman (ETX)" To: "'info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu'" Subject: INFO-RUSS: Entreaty for help to reach mass media Date: Wed, 21 Apr 1999 13:20:49 +0200 Status: OR Content-Type: text Content-Length: 1908 --------------------------------------------------------------------- This is INFO-RUSS broadcast (1200+ subscribers).

My parents-in-law, Ukrainian Jewish survivors from the Holocaust, whose both daughters and both grandchildren are Swedish citizens since years ago, got a final refusal on their asylum application in Sweden from the Swedish Board of Immigration Appeals (Utlanningsnamnden). Their previous application for family reunification with their daughters' families in Sweden was refused as well. This horrible decision was made after a similar decision by the Swedish Immigration Board (Invandrarverket) which confirmed that Jews in Ukraine may have a "well-founded fear of persecution" based on conditions in Ukraine, but that is no longer enough for a Jewish asylum-seeker from Ukraine to be granted a political asylum in Sweden. If someone of you could help me to inform by E-mail some influential journalists from the most well-known mass-media in USA and Europe (i.e. New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Time, Newsweek, Financial Times, etc.), I would greatly appreciate it. We know there is only one thing the Swedish government fears mostly of all - that is a negativ publicity, especially when it concern Jewish matters. Please, help me save our Jewish family as a complete one. Everybody, for sake of whom my parents-in-law have to live for, resides in Stockholm now, not in Ukraine! Thank you in advance.

Privodimaya nizhe stat'ya ... podpisana "Anton Bublikov". Eto odin iz psevdonimov Dmitriya Bykova. BRATUShKA MOJ KAIN Natovskie bombezhki Serbii dazhe u menya, zakorenelogo tsinika i prognivshego liberala, vyzvali zhivotnoe negodovanie. Poshel k amerikanskomu posol'stvu, a tam tolpa skandiruet: "Serby - bratushki!" I samyj bol'shoj bratushka - konechno, Miloshevich. Vot zhe, dumayu, dela. Oni tam, v NATO, dumayut, chto albantsev zashishayut. A na samom dele eto oni menya s nim bratayut. Ne sprosyas', hochu li ya takogo rodstvennika. U Avelya tozhe brat byl. I gde teper' Avel'? Pochemu imenno Miloshevich - edinstvennyj iz kommunisticheskih evropejskih liderov - uderzhalsya u rulya? Kak mogla takaya posredstvennost' zavoevat' vseslavyanskuyu slavu? Kak vse zyuganovy - tihoj sapoj. Massovyj vybros miloshevichej vpolne obyasnim. Tito, vernyj uchenik Stalina, regulyarno ustraival profilakticheskie chistki partapparata. Napugannyj "prazhskoj vesnoj", on uchinil ocherednoj pogrom v 1972-m. Partliberalam-reformatoram, "serbskim Dubchekam", dali takoj ukorot, chto administrativno-gosudarstvennaya niva Yugoslavii stala napominat' pejzazh posle bitvy. Na dymyashuyusya pustosh' popolzlo stado parazitov, kotoryh, krome kar'ery, ne interesovalo nichego. Zolotaya pora anonimok, donosov, vzyatok! Miloshevich - etogo prizyva. Sdelal kar'eru za schet blata Samyj krutoj serbskij natsionalist sovremennosti vovse ne serb a chernogorets, rodivshijsya i vyrosshij, pravda, v serbskom gorodke Pozharevats, bliz Belgrada. Vsegda otutyuzhennyj, v strogom kostyumchike, on obshalsya tol'ko s detkami iz nomenklaturnyh semej, a v shkole zavyazal znakomstvo s Mir'yanoj Markovich, dochkoj vysokopostavlennyh partijnyh funktsionerov. Svad'bu sygrali, uzhe buduchi studentami. Kar'ere Slobodana test' sposobstvoval, da i zhenushka-sotsiolog tyanula naverh nedalekogo supruga. Ponachalu Slobodan poshel po hozyajstvennoj linii, dosluzhivshis' do posta direktora zavoda. Potom opyat' srabotali svyazi testya: Miloshevich stanovitsya predsedatelem pravleniya banka. Na etoj dolzhnosti on naslazhdaetsya prelestyami gnilogo Zapada, ne vylezaya iz zagrankomandirovok. Osobenno chasto - ironiya sud'by! - ezdit v SShA. To byla zolotaya pora dlya Yugoslavii: demonstriruya svoyu obosoblennost' ot SSSR, Tito vybival mnogomilliardnye kredity u MVF. A tam i v belgradskoj partorganizatsii obyavilas' vakansiya: hozyajstvennik i finansist shirokogo profilya popadaet v gorkom. V 1984 godu on uzhe pervyj sekretar' Belgradskogo gorkoma SKYu, dva goda spustya stanovitsya pervym - pervym sekretarem TsK serbskoj kompartii. Lyubov'yu sograzhdan i dazhe partajgenossen on ne pol'zovalsya, skoree naoborot: mnogie ne davali sebe truda skryt' prezrenie k cheloveku, sdelavshemu kar'eru za schet blata. Kak oni potom zhaleli o svoej nedal'novidnosti! Tverdyj yugoslavskij kommunist ne tol'ko uderzhal vlast', kogda ruhnulo vse titovskoe zdanie SFRYu, no eshe i umudrilsya sohranit' vsevlastie apparata. S 1987 goda Yugoslaviya voyuet prakticheski nepreryvno - sama s soboj. Vzlet populyarnosti Miloshevicha svyazan imenno s Kosovo. K voprosu ob iskonnosti-poskonnosti serbskih prav na nego: serby uporno vspominayut v kachestve glavnogo argumenta proigrannuyu imi znamenituyu kosovskuyu bitvu s turkami 1389 goda. No ved' plechom k plechu s serbami protiv turok srazhalis' i zhivshie tam albantsy! O chem sovremennye istoriki predpochitayut zabyvat'. Po konstitutsii 1974 goda kraj, v kotorom albanskoe naselenie sostavlyalo 90%, poluchil pochti respublikanskij status, stav avtonomiej. Naivnye albantsy zhdali logicheskogo prodolzheniya, sozdav dvizhenie "Kosovo - respublika". Pod etim lozungom vesnoj vosem'desyat pervogo nachalis' besporyadki v Prishtinskom universitete (devyat' ubityh i bolee dvuhsot ranenyh). Albantsy vzyalis' za oruzhie, Kosovo zapylalo. S teh por Belgrad ne delal dazhe simvolicheskih popytok reshit' problemu - inoj natsional'noj politiki Yugoslaviya vremen izdyhayushego titoizma ne pridumala. Serby bezhali iz Kosovo tolpami: albantsy izzhivali ih prosto i zhestoko, schet iznasilovannyh serbok shel na sotni. V aprele 1987-go terpenie kosovskih serbov lopnulo: oni tozhe stali vyhodit' na ulitsu. Geroem stal by lyuboj, kto poobeshal zashishat' serbov v Kosovo. I 24 aprelya 1987 goda (aprel' - voobshe kakoj-to sud'bonosnyj mesyats dlya Yugoslavii) serbskij partboss Miloshevich vystupil na Kosovom Pole pered mnogotysyachnoj tolpoj s istoricheskoj rech'yu o prinadlezhnosti Kosovo serbam. Tak Slobodan perestal byt' tipichnym byurokratom, boyashimsya mass: esli massovoe dvizhenie grozit stat' antikommunisticheskim, ego nado . . . vozglavit'! Nechto podobnoe proizoshlo i v Rossii, gde kommunisty osedlali natsional'nuyu ideyu. Kak pisal publitsist Aleksa Dzhilas, "serbskij natsionalizm byl sozhran, a ego duh propital edoka". Pod kriki o vosstanovlenii poprannyh prav kosovskih serbov Miloshevich shel k neogranichennoj vlasti. Zimoj 1988 goda ugar shovinizma bukval'no zahlestnul Serbiyu: restorannye orkestry ispolnyali patrioticheskie pesni, dissidentov davili neshadno. UDBA - yugoslavskij analog KGB - oshutila sebya podlinnym hozyainom strany. Ulitsy i kafe Belgrada zapolnili soldaty v polevoj forme. Gavrila Printsip byl vozveden v printsip. Pod zvuki marshej Miloshevich torzhestvenno obeshaet "razobrat'sya s albantsami" - i stanovitsya prezidentom Serbii. S albantsami on razobralsya: v 1989 godu lishil avtonomnogo statusa Kosovo, a na vsyakij sluchaj eshe i Voevodinu, gde preobladayut vengry. Albantsy otvetili, vyrazhayas' po-midovski, "adekvatno i simmetrichno": 2 iyulya 1990 goda prinyata deklaratsiya o nezavisimoj i ravnopravnoj respublike Kosovo v sostave federal'noj Yugoslavii. Miloshevich otvetil eshe adekvatnee. Vse uchebnye zavedeniya, gde prepodavanie velos' na albanskom, razognany, ot albantsev polnost'yu ochistili administrativnye organy vplot' do ZhEKov (esli upotrebit' nashu terminologiyu). Odnovremenno albantsy byli uvoleny i s promyshlennyh predpriyatij. Vse trudosposobnoe albanskoe naselenie mgnovenno stalo bezrabotnym! Roditeli pokonchili zhizn' samoubijstvom Do nachala kosovskogo krizisa-99 v natsional'nyh vojnah na territorii byvshej Yugoslavii pogibli 300 tysyach chelovek, bezhentsami stali poltora milliona. Otvetstvennost' za eti smerti i razoreniya lezhit na Milosheviche i horvatskom fyurere Tudzhmane, glavnym kozyrem kotoryh ostavalsya serbskij natsionalizm, a glavnym argumentom - sila. Osobenno Slobo lyubit tanki: v marte 1991-go tankami i avtomatnym ognem na porazhenie razognal tysyachi trebovavshih ego otstavki demonstrantov na ulitsah Belgrada, tankami zhe otvetil v 1991-m na provozglashenie nezavisimosti Slovenii i Horvatii. Dlya horvatskih ustashej Miloshevich okazalsya luchshim podarkom. Teper' oni smelo mogli rvat'sya k nezavisimosti, pokazyvaya na ekrany televizorov: vot kakovy oni, serby! Chem Miloshevich luchshe Gitlera? 28 iyunya 1991 goda - data ofitsial'nogo nachala yugoslavskoj vojny. 28 iyunya, prazdnik svyatogo Vita, voobshe fatal'no-tragicheskaya data v serbskoj istorii - den' kosovskoj bitvy 1389-go, den' ubijstva v Saraevo ertsgertsoga Frantsa Ferdinanda v 1914-m. . . Vot i na etot den' Miloshevich prikazal vvesti vojska v Sloveniyu i Horvatiyu. Lozung momenta byl: "Vse serby dolzhny zhit' v odnom gosudarstve". Mir v Horvatii v dekabre 1991 goda prishlos' ustanavlivat' vojskam OON. V Bosnii serby voevali i s horvatami, i s bosnijtsami-musul'manami. Tam voennye dejstviya dlilis' dol'she: peremirie ustanovilos' tol'ko 14 dekabrya 1995 goda, posle vvoda vojsk NATO, kotorye v etoj situatsii sygrali ves'ma blaguyu rol'. El'tsin, kstati, uzhe imeya togda chechenskij opyt, nachal delat' vyvody i vo vremya predposlednego vizita Miloshevicha v Moskvu (letom 1995 goda) ubezhdal togo smirit' serbskij shovinizm. Miloshevich obeshal. On vsegda obeshaet. Gordoe imya "Yugoslaviya" vernulos' na kartu mira 8 aprelya 1997 goda, kogda soyuz Serbii i Chernogorii, unasledovavshij imya byvshej strany, priznali vse byvshie respubliki SFRYu. Miloshevich po serbskoj konstitutsii ne mog ballotirovat'sya v prezidenty Serbii na tretij srok. Vyhod byl odin: vozglavit' yugoslavskuyu federatsiyu. On vstupil v dolzhnost' prezidenta Yugoslavii 23 iyulya 1997 goda. Za otsutstviem skol'ko-nibud' vnyatnogo plana reform (v Belgrade shutili, chto edinstvennaya programma Miloshevicha - pervaya programma televideniya) nastalo vremya snova razygryvat' kosovskuyu kartu, kotoraya tak vyruchili Slobo za desyat' let do togo. Pozhaluj, edinstvennaya poistine bratskaya zasluga Miloshevicha pered Rossiej - naglyadnaya demonstratsiya togo, do chego dovodyat stranu i mir kommunisty, perekrasivshiesya v patriotov i dorvavshiesya do vlasti. Samoe interesnoe, chto, po mneniyu ryada analitikov, Miloshevich sam ne zainteresovan v russkoj podderzhke. Kotoraya tol'ko zatyanet vojnu i otrezhet emu vse puti k otstupleniyu. Golosit' "Slobo" i "Russiya", sluzhit' zhivymi mishenyami i v patrioticheskom entuziazme plyasat' na ulitsah natsiya gotova lish' do teh por, poka uron, nanosimyj ej i ee gorodam, ne dostig kriticheskoj cherty. Rossiya dolzhna by horosho eto pomnit' po avgustu-91. Chem glubzhe Miloshevich budet vlezat' v vojnu, tem men'she u nego shansov ostavat'sya geroem i simvolom natsional'nogo edineniya. Tak chto esli u Rossii hvatit uma vtyanut'sya v konflikt, eto mozhet okazat'sya stol' zhe gubitel'no dlya serbov, skol' gubitel'ny dlya albantsev okazalis' v konechnom itoge natovskie bombardirovki. Imenno poetomu Slobo s Rugovoj pospeshili poruchkat'sya pered kamerami. No na etot raz, pohozhe, Miloshevichu nikto ne poveril. Tak vyglyadit narodnyj geroj-99, ideal nashih kommunistov, serbskij brat, ch'i roditeli pokonchili s soboj s intervalom v odinnadtsat' let. Mnogie polagayut, chto suitsidnye geny dayut nakonets sebya znat', a dushevnaya bolezn' vozhdya rasprostranyaetsya na ves' narod. No ne slishkom li gromozdkij i dorogostoyashij sposob samoubijstva vybral Slobodan Miloshevich? ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- From INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Wed Apr 28 17:18 EDT 1999 Received: from smarty.ece.jhu.edu (smarty.ece.jhu.edu [128.220.14.60]) by jfet.ece.jhu.edu (8.9.1/8.9.1) with SMTP id RAA07673 for ; Wed, 28 Apr 1999 17:18:03 -0400 (EDT) Received: by smarty.ece.jhu.edu (5.61/1.18jrs) id AA02119; Wed, 28 Apr 99 14:12:11 -0400 Message-Id: <9904281812.AA02119@smarty.ece.jhu.edu> Errors-To: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Sender: INFO-RUSS-request@smarty.ece.jhu.edu From: "Lenny Monastyrsky" To: info-russ@smarty.ece.jhu.edu Subject: INFO-RUSS: Help with printer control needed.

He writes custom accounting applications for small businesses. His customers are as "wealthy" as he is. They use 286 PCS, dot matrix printers, 13" monitors, etc. They mostly run MS DOS. They simply can't afford new computer hardware. That's why my friend sent me the following msg (slightly edited by me): > Could you do me a favour? I need so called "ESC - sequences" > (escape sequences) for Epson and HP printers. The thing is > that I need to print under DOS in landscape and portrait > orientations, in condensed and non-condensed modes using > their laser, dot matrix and jet printers. > > Can you find them on the Internet?

I searched HP and Epson websites but found nothing. Can anyone help him, please? Or point me in the right direction? Thank you very much.

This time around, it is about NATO-Yugoslavia war over Kosovo ethnic cleansing of Albanians by Milocevic Serb government. You've noticed that I posted a few dry-information pieces from Reuter, but in general there was not much of activity on info-russ on the subject. It does not mean however that I was not getting msgs intended for publication; none of them get broadcasted by me (albeit I've discussed them with some of the originators). There were very few of them, but at this point I feel there is a need to address the matter, and that is what I want to do here. A couple of those were pure hate msgs, "pan-slav patriotic", and I will not talk about them. However, I've got four postings from the subscribers whom I deem to be good, serious people. They got strong feelings about the situation with the bombing of Yugoslavia by NATO forces. To describe their msgs very briefly, all of them deplore the bombing, none of them suggest any significantly new information on the subject, all of them are very strongly on the Serb side, and none of them take ethnic cleansing seriously. (All this is very schematics, but the authors of the postings, see below, will be happy to provide you with the text of their postings, so you'll be able to read them in full and see the nuances by yourself.) Some of those people want to see some action at info-russ in the sense of collective letter-signing (and one of them has kindly chosen me for the the honor of becoming "a suitable author of such letter" (see, he believes in me!:-). I disagree with the the main premise of these letters (which in my opinion is one-sideness and taking ethnic cleansing too lightly), but this is not the point. Since I am not publishing these letters in full, I will not argue with them here. What I will do, is (i) give you very briefly my own point of view, as long as I am already on it (:-) (ii) tell you why I don't want to open any major discussion on it here on info-russ, and (iii) provide you the e-mail addresses and names of those four people, so that those of you who want to be part of related discussion or letter-writing/signing, or any other related activity (but don't do any shooting or bombing, please!:-), should feel free to get in touch with those people and engaged in that activity outside of the info-russ framework. If in brief, as far as I am concerned, two things are clear by now: (1) Milocevic is Nazi-like figure (and the Serbs as whole, don't seem to have much against his genocide or ethnic cleansing practices), and I have no reasons to disbelieve the worst information about him and his thugs and murderers; (2) NATO made terrible miscalculation by overlooking the scenario whereby following the start of bombing, Milocevic would brazenly attack Albanians in Kosovo and kill them off or drive them out of their homes. Frankly, I don't know what is the best course of action now. But I do know that an aborted military action (if no strong and conclusive accord enforcing the effective protection of Albanians in Kosovo is reached, and no withrowal of Serb military/paramilitary from Kosovo is attained), would result in even more terrible consequences. No Hitler-like mad-man can be appeased; especially when his "patriotic"-crazy crowd is still behind him and think they can get away with the mass-murder and expulsion of a whole ethnic group. They've got to stand the war-crime tribunal, or the current world's steady-state will be falling apart, with other newly-minted Hitlers of the world following in his steps. Genocide is genocide; unfortunately, the West wanted to look the other way when it happened in Rwanda, where Hutus were mass-slaughtering Tutsis, but at least at some point the line has to be drown. I do remember that a good part of population (not Serbs) of former "Big Yugoslavia" during World War II were Nazis' allies and were engaged in the worst atrocities against other groups of population of Yugoslavia, Slavs, and especially Jews; and I do remember that Serbs were fighting against Nazis during that war and lost huge part of their population in it; and I do remember that during that war Serbs were not engaged in atrocities against Jews (unlike some other people in former Soviet Union & Sov. Block), and actually saved some Jews. And yet none of the above gives a good reason for good people of Serbia to take their turn in Nazi-like genocide activity toward their former "brothers"-enemies. Or to be approvingly silent witnesses when Milosevic and his gang do that. This is not a way of people in these times to reach their national goals. Having said all that, let me tell you that I am not advocating my point of view (or anybody else's), at least here, on info-russ. Theoretically, a political dispute is a good exercise, but in practical terms, as the "owner/coordinator" of info-russ, I am faced with a tough choice: "to be or not to be", i. e. to open the gates to the dispute on info-russ that may torn the so hard-developed community apart, and at the same time, has not much to do with the major purpose (mutual self-help) of the net for which it was developed by me ("not to be") or not to open it ("to be"). So far my inclination is not to open it. As I've said, the dispute and its subject has not much to do with info-russ, and an open-end discussion is not the mode of info-russ. Info-russ is a good tool serving emigre community; one of its strong points is its focus on more or less well defined set of objectives. The comparison with Russia's war against Chechnya and info-russ action (the letter to President Clinton and Congress) comes easily to mind; my own view is that Serbs & Milocevic are counterparts of Russian government in this comparison; but then again, this is not the point. In the case of Chechnya, (a) the event was close to the area of major interests and concerns of the info-russ subscribers; (b) the information was scarce on major Western sources, and we were getting most of it from internet sources (info-russ including in a very substantial way; remember reports of Alik Suhanov?), and (c) it was dry information, and not a open-end discussion club, (d) the victims didn't have a huge government machine behind them. None of these considerations is true in the case of Yugoslavia vs Kosovo Albanians. Besides, even if I would open that discussion, I can clearly see the onset of renewed "Russ-patriotic" or "Pan-Slav-patriotic" hysteria (and I saw this kind od things happening on internet before), and again I have no intention of destroying a community whose members are mutually helpful to each other. Look, folks, as I've stressed in past, in no way info-russ is a Russ-patriotic club. It is a network of REFUGES and EMIGRES from Russia, and not a network of/for Great-Russia-patriots. I am sorry for putting it in a so straight way, but this is it. Of course, Great-Russia-patriots are/may be part of this community, but for the reasons others than their patriotic passions. What I've just said is not related to the four people I've mentioned above (at least, this is my presumption). A few years ago, first three of them signed the info-russ letter of protest against Russia's war against Chechnya (see http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/topresident.html); the fourth one has sent me a letter he is trying to circulate among FizTech-abroad community. Here are their names and addresses: Oleg Kolosov oleg.kolosov@materials.oxford.ac.uk Vladimir Gusev gusev@javanet.com Sergey Cheskis cheskis@post.tau.ac.il Mark Latash mll11@psu.edu Please feel free to ask them for their texts, considerations and ideas. But, as I've said, I am not planning at the moment to open a related discussion on info-russ. However, I may broadcast any dry and relevant info on the subject if I run into a good one. My best, -- Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator sasha@smarty.ece.jhu.edu INFO-RUSS server: http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/inforuss.html

In the spring of 1996, as eastern Bosnia's frozen ground was beginning to thaw, a photographer and I drove to Kamenica, a village in Republika Srpska, the Serb-run enclave that was carved out of Bosnia by Serbian ethnic cleansing and later given juridical existence by the 1995 Dayton peace accord. We had been told that Kamenica was the place where Bosnian Serb forces had killed many of the 7,000 Bosnian Muslims who were missing after the Serbs overran the U.N.-protected enclave of Srebrenica the previous summer. We veered off the main road through the village onto a dirt path that led into rolling green hills. A few minutes later, we found ourselves standing on a grassy hillside littered with human bones. Nearly eight months had passed since the men from Srebreni ca were killed, and none of the Serbs of Kamenica had thought to bury them. Tennis shoes and woolen socks still hugged skeletal feet. A stretcher made of a blanket and two wooden sticks lay on the ground; the wounded man who had lain on it was now an inta ct skeleton, still dressed in jeans and a plaid shirt. Skulls, vertebrae, arms, legs, rib cages, rubber boots, bits of clothing, and ID cards were everywhere. And, in a thorny bush at the bottom of the hill, we found an old Polaroid of four men--all presu mably victims--laughing and sharing a bottle of beer. As we walked among the dead, two Serb farmers drove past us on a tractor, the tires of their vehicle narrowly missing a corpse that still lay right in the path. They seemed not to notice. A few minutes later, two more young Serb men walked by. I asked the m if they knew what had happened on the hill. They shrugged their shoulders and told us that they had been on vacation in Austria during the summer of 1995. Ever since that encounter, I have been struggling to understand what these men could have been thinking. Even before the current slaughter in Kosovo, Serb forces had killed a massive number of civilians in the name of national self-defense. Yet it has all gone on with barely a murmur of public dissent or protest. Even when I approach Serbs individually, probing them for remorse, I hardly find any. Why not? Today, this could be the most important question facing the NATO allies as they attempt to deal with the Serbian rampage through Kosovo. The conventional thinking among many Western intellectuals and politicians is, as President Clinton has put it, that we have no quarrel with the Serbian people. It is their leader, Slobodan Milosevic, and his henchmen who manipulated them into waging so many brutal wars. This is the thinking behind Secretary of State Madeleine Albright's two broadcasts to Serbs in their own language, which she learned during a brief childhood stay in the Yugoslav capital. And, if it is true, then it suggests a strategy aimed at breaking Milosevic's will or, at most, toppling him from power. To use the parlance of military strategists, th e "center of gravity" in the war with Yugoslavia consists of the government and its armed forces. But what if it isn't true? What if the Serbs who wear targets on their t-shirts and gather in morbid celebration for daily rock concerts or marathon races actually support ethnic cleansing--actively or passively? In that case, we do have a quarrel with the Serbian people. In that case, the "center of gravity" in Yugoslavia is something far more difficult to destroy than an army or a regime. It is the very mentality of a nation. I myself used to believe that ordinary Serbs had been deceived and bullied into accepting the atrocities done in their name. But now, after five years of covering events in the former Yugoslavia, and after trying in vain to elicit expressions of remorse from the hundreds of Serbs I have met, I am convinced that the latter assessment is the accurate one. Whatever else we do in Kosovo, we must face the fact that, for all intents and purposes, many ordinary Serbs are--to paraphrase Daniel Jonah Goldhagen--Milosevic's willing executioners. The regime's propaganda, though powerful, can account for only so much of the Serbian behavior we have witnessed since Yugoslavia's disintegration in 1991. Consider a conversation I had on a sweltering afternoon in late July 1996, when I went to Kravica, another Serb village near Srebrenica. There, forensic scientists from the U.S.-based group Physicians for Human Rights, accompanied by NATO peacekeeping troops, were excavating a suspected mass grave. The scientists gently probed the earth in search of hu man flesh and began removing dirt, layer by layer. As they got closer to the corpses, the stench of decomposing flesh became stronger. By the time they exposed the dozens of bodies, the stench was unbearable. The bodies had their hands tied behind their b acks with wire and had been executed at close range. A family of Serb refugees from Sarajevo had been resettled in a farmhouse right next to this mass grave. I found the head of the family, 68-year-old Pavle (he wouldn't give me his last name), picking apples about 50 yards away. When I asked him about the mass grave, his first reply was: "Those bodies are probably Serbs. Six Serbs are missing from this area." When I told Pavle that more than 7,000 Muslim men went missing after the fall of Srebrenica, he told me, "The Muslims probably killed each other." Pavle went on to explain that the Muslims had quarreled about what to do when the Serbs attacked Srebrenica. Some had wanted to fight and some had wanted to surrender. Eventually, these two groups started fighting and killed one another off. Both of Pavle's stories--that the victims were really Serbs or that the Muslims had massacred themselves--could have easily come from Belgrade television, which had retailed similar exculpatory yarns throughout the wars in Croatia and Bosnia. Yet it's har d to imagine he really believed either tale. That became clear when I pressed him on the Muslim shootout version. If the Muslims had killed one another in gun battles, I asked, how come the corpses' arms were tied behind their backs with wire? "How should I know?" he shot back. "And why should I care about recovering those who forced us to leave our homes? The international workers would be more useful fixing our house than digging up those bodies." Obviously Pavle knew the truth. Just as obviously, his true sentiment about the fact that so many Muslims had been slaughtered was: "They asked for it." After all, the Muslim-led government had, he believed, forced him out of his own house in Sarajevo. I have had many, many such conversations. Sooner or later, ordinary Serbs stop denying and begin arguing that the massacres by their forces were justified. Milosevic's propaganda is not really intended to create a new belief system among its audience; its true purpose is to arouse and reinforce a belief system that already exists, just below the surface of the Serbian personality. And central to this mindset is the notion that the Serbs, and only the Serbs, are the true victims in the Balkans. This belief system, to be sure, is based partly in reality, both historical and contemporary. Serbs suffered terribly at the hands of the Germans and their allies during both world wars. And, in the conflicts since Yugoslavia's breakup, it is true that bo th the Croats and Muslims committed their share of atrocities against Serb civilians. In fact, the Srebrenica enclave was the base for raids by Muslim guerrillas that killed hundreds of Serb peasants. "In the twisted minds of us Serbs, knowing that what w e are trying to do is right is enough justification to close our eyes to brutality," a Belgrade friend of mine once explained to me. Yet even this doesn't quite wash, because no rational consideration of the facts could produce the conclusion that the current abuses against the Serbs (let alone those of the past) could constitute moral authorization for the far larger slaughter the hea vily armed Serb forces are now perpetrating. This is where myth enters the picture. Serbian culture itself is built around elaborate sagas of failure and betrayal, all beginning with the 1389 defeat of Prince Lazar by the Ottoman Turks on the battlefields of Kosovo--a heroic last stand that sanctified Kosovo for all Serbs for all time. For centuries, Serbs have been taught not only that they sacrificed more than any other Christian European people to resist pagan aggression, but also that their sacrifices have never been appreciated or recognized. Rather, outside powers ungratefully denied them their independence. It is this deep-rooted historical sense of frustration and grievance that makes Serbs feel that they are, by definition, victims. And the Serbs' sense of their own collective innocence is mirrored by an equally intense sense of the collective guilt of the other Balkan ethnicities. In the grand sweep of history, today's deaths of Muslims or Albanians (yesteryear's allies of the Turks and Germans) are still nothing compared to the repeated "genocide" against the Serbs in the past. Thus, if the Muslims of Sr ebrenica were massacred, that is an appropriate form of retribution for what the Muslims of Sarajevo did to Pavle and his family. Cosmic payback. Surely, though, Pavle is just a peasant, an uneducated man susceptible to sentimental stories and stirring folk music. Modern Serbs, those who live in the big cities and have received an education, must be immune to such appeals. Well, not exactly. Indeed , as Michael Dobbs reported in the April 19 Washington Post, many Belgraders have access to Western media accounts of Serb atrocities against Albanians and dismiss them, reflexively, as "propaganda." And it was a famous 1986 memorandum by leading members of the Serbian Academy of Arts and Sciences, the most distinguished institution in Serbian intellectual life, that set off the Serbian nationalist movement in post-Tito Yugoslavia. The document was a tendentious mishmash of demands for recompense for the past sufferings of the Serbs at the hands of both Tito's government and such rival nationalities as the Croats and Albanians (see "A Final Solution," by Ryan Lizza, page 28). As hostile as the Serbs may feel toward Croats or Muslims (and vice versa), the deepest and most authentic intergroup hatred in the former Yugoslavia is between Serbs and Albanians. Serbian anti-Albanian prejudice is perfectly crude and yet perfectly resp ectable in Belgrade. And it extends through all levels of society. In the summer of 1997, I attended a party in Belgrade at the home of a beautiful artist, who had spent most of her life in Sweden but had recently returned to Belgrade, and her boyfriend, a talented graphic designer working for Saatchi & Saatchi. Most of the guests were like the hosts--handsome, talented, university-educated, and well-traveled. I had recently been to Kosovo, where I had been looking into what was then an obscure group of rural militants who called themselves the Kosovo Liberation Army. At the party, I met a Swedish diplomat who had also just returned from Kosovo. We quickly real ized that we had met some of the same people and gone to the same bars in Pristina. As we recounted the good times we had with the Albanians we knew in common, many of the well-bred Serbs in the room started laughing. They thought we were joking. Surely, we hadn't really gone out for a beer with Albanians. As it gradually dawned on them that we were serious, the room fell silent, and, one by one, everyone left. I assumed that they were bored with us or that they didn't speak English. I learned later, from an appalled Serb who has since left the country, that the other partygoers had gone into another room to express their dismay that the two foreigners had been associating with Albanians. There are, of course, "good Serbs," educated and considerate people who know the truth and wish that they could act on it. Any number of Bosnian Muslims owe their lives to such people, who risked all to spirit them out of Bosnia just ahead of Milosevic's ethnic-cleansing machine. I asked one such Belgrade Serb how it was possible that so many Serbs could walk past the empty shells of houses, see piles of rubble that were once mosques, even step over the skeletons of the dead without showing remorse or any emotion at all. She was quiet for a moment, seemingly genuine in her anguish. "I feel terrible when I see the images of Albanians being forced into Albania," she told me. "Believe me, there are many others who do, too. Not all the good Serbs have left, a s many believe. We are still here, desperate and horrified. We are silent, but we are documenting this Serbian madness." She asked that I not use her name or otherwise identify her for fear that she would suffer reprisals. My friends in Belgrade tell me it is impossible to protest the atrocities of the regime, especially in a state of war--and Yugoslavia has been more or le ss permanently at war since 1991. This view, too, has a rational basis. Back in 1992, as the war in Bosnia was just getting under way, Serbian peace activists marched through Belgrade in opposition but were brutally silenced. They made another effort in 1993, but, again, a violent crackdo wn ended the protest quickly. Now, since NATO started bombing Serbia, they say things are worse than ever before. "To show remorse now would be suicide," explained my friend, pointing to the April 11 assassination of Slavko Curuvija, the Belgrade publishe r who had been critical of Milosevic's policies. He was gunned down just days after the official press had branded him a supporter of NATO's bombing. Even so, fear of repression doesn't quite excuse or account for the ineffectuality of the good Serbs. After all, Serbian military and police began shelling Albanian villages and killing Albanian civilians more than a year ago. How is it that the good Serb s could not find it within themselves to protest the war on Kosovo's Albanians long before NATO got involved? Furthermore, democratic-minded Serbs have, in other circumstances, showed that they are not afraid to take on the regime. There was actually a brief moment when I thought Milosevic's day of reckoning had finally come. It was December 1996, a year after th e war in Bosnia had ended. Tens of thousands of Serbs took to the streets of Belgrade demanding that Milosevic resign. In Belgrade's beautiful old town, I stood amid throngs of protesters in Republic Square. They were students and workers, elderly men and women and families. They carried whistles and placards, banged pots and pans. Their mood was joyous and defiant--caught up in it, I, too, could hardly contain my excitement at the prospect that Milosevic would soon be gone. Their ostensible reason for marching was that Milosevic had overturned election results in several cities, including Belgrade, where opposition mayors and other city officials had been elected. But surely, I told myself, the Serbs had finally found their soul and were also moved by their leader's role in the siege of Sarajevo, the leveling of Vukovar, and the massacre at Srebrenica. The Serbs carried on with their protests against Milosevic for 90 days through sleet and snow and subzero temperatures, every day, without exception. In so doing, they disproved the contention that the Serbian people were mere putty in the hands of state television's propaganda. Milosevic's TV tried to label the tens of thousands of demonstrators a small group of terrorists and hooligans, but speakers at the rallies ridiculed this as the primitive propaganda it was. Indeed, as the protests went on, one of the movement's demands became that Milosevic give up his television monopoly because the public was sick of the lies and propaganda. As for the fear factor, scores of demonstrators were beaten and imprisoned by police, but the movement continued undeterred. The three months of protest ended peacefully, with a partial victory for the demonstrators: Milosevic ceded some power and positio ns to his opponents. These demonstrations constituted one of the most impressive displays of civic resolve I've ever seen. I was wrong, though, to imagine that they had anything to do with the regime's crimes in Bosnia. At no time did Belgrade's democratic movement ever add t he war crimes in Bosnia to its list of complaints against Milosevic. To do so, in fact, would have divided the opposition (which contained ultranationalist elements itself) and alienated the public. Serbia is not Nazi Germany; Slobodan Milosevic is not Adolf Hitler; and the Bosnian Muslims and Kosovar Albanians, whose own irregular forces have killed Serbs hors de combat, are not exactly as helpless or as blameless as the European Jews were. Still, the relative absence of effective Serbian protest and, especially, the silence of intellectuals on the matter of war crimes raise disturbing questions about the culpability of Serbs as a whole in the actions of the authoritarian government that rules them. The very notion of collective guilt is uncomfortable. The whole concept of an international war crimes tribunal is appropriately based on the assumption that individuals, not whole societies, are to be held accountable when atrocities such as those we hav e witnessed in the Balkans this decade occur. And yet what is striking about the ethnic cleansing by today's Serbs is the same thing that struck Daniel Jonah Goldhagen as he reviewed the conduct of ordinary Germans toward the Jews during the Holocaust. It 's not only the utter lack of sustained or substantial protest against it; it's also the gratuitous sadism--the "volunteerism, enthusiasm, and cruelty in performing their assigned and self-appointed tasks" (to use Goldhagen's phrase)--that the Serbs, like the Germans during World War II, have exhibited. Albanians tell of being forced to chant "this is Serbia" as they were driven from their Kosovo homes, or to hold up three fingers in the Serbian salute. Kosovar Albanians have been systematically searched for jewelry and money; their homes, looted. Such things went on in Bosnia, too. Perhaps the most telling detail of the Belgrade protests was the nature of the insults these Serbian pro-democracy marchers would hurl at Milosevic. "Slobo is a Turk!" they would cry, a term that refers to Serbia's hated historical enemy, the Ottomans--but is also a common, modern-day slur usually aimed at Bosnian Muslims. "Slobo is an Ustasha!" they yelled, referring to the Croat fascists who allied themselves with the Nazis in World War II and killed hundreds of thousands of Serbs. And, when the busloads of heavily equipped riot police dispatched by Milosevic arrived on the scene, the protesters' response was to suggest that the cops were focusing on the wrong target. "Go to Kosovo! Go to Kosovo!" they would scream. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Stacy Sullivan is a consultant at the John F.

Papers on performance, missions and tests and performance results of advanced concepts are strongly encouraged. Session C4. MISSION BENEFITS OF BREAKTHROUGH PROPULSION PHYSICS ALBERT J. JUHASZ, Chair NASA Glenn Research Center at Lewis Field 21000 Brookpark Road, MS: 301-2 Cleveland, OH 44135 216-433-6134, Fax: 433-6133, albert.j.juhasz@grc.nasa.gov Papers are invited that illustrate the potential benefits to interstellar and near-Earth space missions if breakthroughs in propulsion and power physics are achieved. The specific breakthroughs being considered include: 1) propulsion methods which eliminate or dramatically reduce the need for propellant; 2) methods for achieving the shortest possible travel times (including the study of methods to circumvent observed limits); and 3) new modes of on-board energy generation to power propulsion devices (including new methods to power existing electric propulsion). Because these breakthroughs are presumably far from fruition and perhaps even impossible, a special emphasis is to ensure that these benefit assessments accurately reflect the current level of progress achieved to date and the level of uncertainty in the performance estimates.

CANDIDATE SPACE EXPERIMENTS TO TEST BREAKTHROUGH PROPULSION PHYSICS ALAN HOLT, Chair NASA Johnson Space Center 2101 NASA Road, Code: OZ4 Houston, TX 77058-3696 281-244-8394, Fax: 244-8292, al.holt1@jsc.nasa.gov Papers are invited that describe candidate space experiments that address critical unknowns, make-or-break issues, or curious effects related to the long-range goal of achieving at least one of the following propulsion challenges: (1) Discover propulsion methods which eliminate or dramatically reduce the need for propellant; (2) Discover methods for achieving the shortest possible travel times (includes the study of methods to circumvent observed limits); and (3) Discover new modes of on-board energy generation to power the propulsion devices. Topics of interest include experiments and theories regarding: the coupling of the fundamental forces, force-producing effects, contents and properties of space, the motion of matter and energy through spacetime, interactions with spacetime, energy exchange mechanisms, energy sources, and observed anomalous effects. Because these propulsion challenges are presumably far from fruition and perhaps even impossible, a special emphasis is to identify credible research that could make measurable and incremental progress toward these propulsion challenges.

I'm the one with such a passport (where the temporary permit was for living in the MGU dormitory, expired in '95), and I've had an F-1 visa since then. Additionally, I seem to have Jewish roots but can't prove them documentarily. :-( All suggestions and assistance are very welcome, especially lawyer-wise. Have a great day!

Some of the places mentioned here evaluated 5 year degrees from USSR institutes and universities as BS or BA, while others as MS or MA. Same applied for scientific degrees (Kandidat Nauk) - some evaluation agencies evaluated these degrees as MS or MA, some as PhD. Is anyone has the list of evaluation agencies (or can recommend one) which properly evaluate degrees from former USSR institutes and universities - 5 or more years in school would by equivalent to MS (or MA), and Kandidat Nauk would be equivalent to PhD? Any help on this matter would be appreciated.

I am an Israeli citizen, "miluimnik" ("shlav bet"). I have the seal in my Israeli passport which lets me crossing the Israel border without additional permission from the "lishkat gijus". For over two years I have been living out of Israel. One year after my absence, they sent me the letter, where they informed me that my file was sent from my military base to Tel-Ha-Shomer. And after I return, I should go there within three months. Otherwise, they would forbid my moving from Israel. My main question is, what problems with the army will I have if I decide to visit Israel, for couple of weeks? I can see the following scenarios: * They would arrest me in the airport (I hope, they would not do it, because I left Israel legally, and didn't have any debt to the army or "tzav gijus"). * When I arrive to Israel, they would cancel my permission, and before coming back I would need to go to "lishkat gijus", or Tel-Ha-Shomer to prove them that I am not a camel. * When I cross the border to Israel, they tell me nothing, but they will detain me in the airport, when I come back. All information, advice, examples, experience would be highly appreciated. Please send me mail to: alex_mazor@mitel.com. Thank you, Alex Mazor PS. And of course, I am willing to share all the info I may get with any interested party, via direct reply (and not via info-russ).

I'll also be pretty often away from my computers (although most of the time will have access to info-russ). My request: please submit only the postings you think are really urgent. Those of you who submit their subscription requests, be aware there could be delays with your subscription. The same with broadcasting. Sorry for that. Have a great summer. While possibly swimming or sailing, don't get too close to Balkan peninsula, and if you do, don't squirm your eyes too tightly; a cruise missile may easily confuse you with somebody else... My best, -- Alex Kaplan, INFO-RUSS owner/coordinator sasha@smarty.ece.jhu.edu INFO-RUSS server: http://psi.ece.jhu.edu/~kaplan/IRUSS/inforuss.html
