excellent people, charming hosts, and great memory-makers.  I hope everyone

Polish cavalry officer who survived the war and taught us Pittsburgh kids
the Russian language), so if anyone wants to practive their English with

Russian Life magazine, now in its 40th year of publication, is _the_
monthly magazine of Russian history, culture, business, language and
travel. With 32 packed, full-color pages each month, Russian Life is your
monthly trip into the heart of Russian reality!

This month in Russian Life we explore war as it has been expressed in the
Russian arts of film and music. Our lead story offers a fascinating look
back at Russian films from WWII onward and how they have expressed Russian
attitudes toward the war. We also have an interesting story on Lyube, a
Russian rock/pop group that is making a name for itself touting a
particularly Russian world view. We also present a timely review of
Prisoner of the Caucasus, the new film based on Tolstoy's story of the same
name. Plus there are our regular departments: Practical Traveler (this
month on telecom options), Survival Russian (on Winter-related phrases),
and Cuisine (offering up a timely rassolnik recipe).

If you are not a subscriber, you can always order a copy of the February
issue separately, or pick it up at a newsstand. If you subscribe now, you
can get our March issue, which will include a fascinating lead story on
Peter the Great's incognito trip to Western Europe, exactly 300 years ago,
and, among other things, a great story on the only woman in the world to
pilot a MiG 29!

Subject: Changes to Russia and West Virginia Homepage

Hello Friends;

Just wanted to call your attention to the Russia and West Virginia Homepage
at http://www.friends-partners.org/~ericd/index.htm

We have recently made some changes to the pages including a Russian
language side to it thanks to two of the Russian students that are
attending West Virginia colleges thanks to the foundation.

The Russia and West Virginia Foundation is an all volunteer foundation that
is primarily, but not exclusively, interested in education oriented
exchanges.  It was founded in January 1993.  There have been more than 100
exchanges sponsored by the foundation with our friends in the city of
Korolev (recently renamed from Kaliningrad) in the Moscow Region.  We have
several Russian students studying in West Virginia colleges and one
American livign for a year in Russia.

Check out the pages and let us know what you think.

I will personally invite you to examine my photographs and critique or
respond as you feel.

Sincerely,

Eric Douglas

Subject: New book on post-Soviet Russia

A Shrimp Learnt To Whistle is unlike any other book on post-Soviet Russia.
Why?  Because the author is a British journalist who has lived in Russia
for extended periods on a Russian salary, independently, without the
benefit of exclusive accommodation and an expense account.  Sarah Hurst
followed up her studies in Russia by becoming a staff reporter on the St
Petersburg Press (now the St Petersburg Times) in 1995-96, during the Duma
election and the run-up to the presidential election.

A Shrimp Learnt to Whistle is about Russian life from the inside.  It
contains a huge number of poignant, shocking, and humorous interviews with
people as diverse as Kolya Vasin, the founder of St Petersburg's John
Lennon temple of peace and love, to the late Mikhail Botvinnik, world chess
champion under Stalin.  Grigory Yavlinsky and Galina Starovoitova are
amongst the present-day politicians interviewed in the book.

For details of how to order A Shrimp Learnt to Whistle, or general enquiries
about the book, contact Sarah Hurst at rivervalley@easynet.co.uk.

Subject: US aid to the NIS Report

Dr. Nancy Lubin, of JNA Associates, Inc., recently sent the PVO/NIS
Project the following inquiry. Because they hope to receive input from as
many NGOs and partnerships as possible, she asked us to pass it along.
If you would like to contribute to her report, please reply directly to
Dr. Lubin (not the PVO/NIS Project).  Thank you.

---
Dr. Lubin writes:

As many of you know, in March, 1996, the Project on the Newly Independent
States of JNA Associates, Inc.  released a report on US aid to the NIS with
an eye towards the smaller projects and partnerships.  The report focused
on the balance of funding among different types of mechanisms for
delivering aid -- in particular, among large consortia and contractors;
private voluntary organizations; small indigenous organizations; and small
partnerships -- and on the elements that go into successful projects no
matter what the mechanisms.

The report found that, while there is certainly a role for all of these
mechanisms, the vast majority of funds provided through USAID were going to
large contractors and voluntary organizations; the smaller projects -- and
particularly the smaller partnerships -- were finding the most difficulty
in generating financial support.  And it found that important elements for
conducting projects -- such as designing projects together with local
participants; including experts on the NIS along with functional experts on
the Western teams; emphasizing follow-up and evaluation; creating oversight
mechanisms; and the like -- were often undervalued or absent.

The impact of the report was quite widespread: we have been called
frequently throughout the year to present our findings in a range of
meetings and discussions about the future of assistance to the NIS; and
many key officials in the assistance community have been referred to us and
to the report by the White House and by Congresssional members and staff.

Because of the report's impact, we have now been asked by our funders to
update and revise the report for release in spring, 1997 for the new
Congress and Administration.  We would like to get a sense from as many of
you as possible the degree to which the funding situation, and the types of
projects funded, may or may not have changed, particularly in terms of your
own experience.  In general, has it become easier or more difficult for you
during the past year to obtain US government funds?  In particular, it
would be useful to know:

- Background to your own projects and partnerships: What was/has been the
purpose of your partnership or projects in the NIS? What have you
accomplished so far, and what have been the impacts?  What kind of funding
did you receive in the past from public and private sources?  What is the
status of your projects currently, and your current funding situation for
these projects?  Have you tried to obtain new funding?  If so, have you
been successful, or found it more or less difficult than in the past?

- Personal stories and specific examples are always most illustrative of
successes and problems in the assistance program.  Any specifics you would
like to share -- about your own project's or others -- that highlight some
of the successes or problems of the assistance program would be useful.

If this report is as widely read as the first, we hope you will find it
useful to contribute to make it as complete as possible.  Please reply,
however, as soon as possible, as we are aiming to complete the report by
spring in order for it to have maximum impact on the Hill and in the aid
community.

If you would like a copy of the original report, please contact JNA
Associates, Inc., 6752 Brigadoon Drive, Bethesda, MD 20817.  As we ran out
of copies of the report almost before they were printed -- and as we ran
out of funds even earlier!  -- we have been distributing xerox copies of
the report at a cost of $15 to cover copying and postage.  If you have any
questions, Nancy Lubin can be reached at the e-mail address
(lubin@igc.apc.org, or by phone (301-229-8492) or fax (301-229-5831).

Thank you in advance for your time and interest.  We look forward to
hearing from you.
