Correction

The headline on the article on p. 61 of our last issue was misleading. Rather than, “Gore-Chernomyrdin Agreements Show Risky U.S. Policy vis-à-vis Russia,” the article actually reported that the Gore-Chernomyrdin agreements for technological partnership, in themselves positive, are at risk because they coexist with the destructive overall U.S. policy of pushing Russia into compliance with IMF “reforms.”
