Dear Colleagues. Russian Academy of sciences asks international scientific community for support

27 June 2013 Russian Goverment and Minister of science and education Livanov started a new reform, which is equivalent to a destruction of the system of Academy institutes as the Steklov Institute, the Keldysh Institute for applied mathematics, LOMI (Sankt-Petersburg branch of the Steklov Institute), the Institute for information transmition problems, the Sobolev Institute (Novosibirsk).

During conversations in July 2013 President of Academy Fortov achieved a reasonable agreement with President Putin.

However in September 2013 after a 10-day information attack in newspapers, TV, and Internet, the law in a regid form was passed through Duma (18 September), Council of Federation (25 September), and President (27 September)
