This working group is concerned with the deteriorating relationship between Russia and many Western countries. We hope that sustained interaction can bridge some of the gap, and so our monthly meetings consist of conversations with Russians via video-conferencing. We meet during the noon hour in Toronto, which is 8:00 pm in Moscow. A well-informed speaker in Russia gives a talk lasting up to thirty minutes and then members of the group reply or question him or her further. The Jan. 24th meeting will be a conversation with Ignat Kalinin, editor of Gazeta.ru, about the Russian media at present. Everyone is welcome to attend one of these conversations is welcome; just inform the chairperson of your interest.
