More letters

I am not listing every letter of support to the EUSPb from Russian institutions (most of them are published in the save_eu blog or on polit.ru), but two recent texts are worth mentioning:

- a letter signed by 28 Academicians published in today's issue of Kommersant ("Academician" is the highest official scholarly title in Russia, a very rough equivalent to Member of the Institut français): see it as an image or text file. 28 is, of course, a very small proportion of the Academy's over 1,000 full and corresponding members, though perhaps not that small if one only counts those whose interests overlap with the European University's five departments (sociology and political science, history, art history, economics, ethnography)
(UPDATE: Anya Kushkova at EUSP has sent me an English version of the letter)

- an official letter from the European Humanities University in Minsk, which was itself shut down by the Belarusian authorities in 2004 and forced to relocate to Vilnius (Lithuania)

The two recent texts are worth mentioning! I don't know how to express my deepest gratitude to you, dear author! This publishing is more than simply helpful for me! You helped me write my paper for me :)
