Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (Moscow) calling for help

The Institute for Theoretical and Experimental Physics (ITEP), Moscow, asks the
international scientific community for help.  The Institute was one of pillars of Soviet
Nuclear Physics.  It survived and manages to maintain high scientific level despite of
the difficult situation for Russian science.  Now the Institute can be phased down
during short time.  We will be grateful to you for help.  

If you are willing to help please support the letter to the Russian authorities
