Introduction

Dear Members of the Russian Academy of Sciences!

Many colleagues expressed categorical non-acceptance of the draft of the federal law "On the Russian Academy of Sciences", submitted to the Duma. According to the project, the reform assumes the elimination of the Academy of Sciences and the creation of a new "RAS" in the form of a "club of academics", separated from the institutions. The situation is critical. Rhetoric is not enough. On our side, urgent practical countermeasures to the plans to eliminate the RAS.

The letter below is suggested.
