A partial summary and translation of an article by Leonid Velichanskii in the Literaturnaia Gazeta, May 14, 1963. It attacks the more important Russian study groups in the U.S., such as the Russian Institute at Columbia, the Ford Foundation, the Hoover Institute, and the Rand Corporation. It laments what it considers the degradation of modern bourgeois science, its fabrication of the political ammunition for the cold war, and the technical and ideological preparation for a hot war.
