Logovaz Bank chairman Boris Berezovsky has announced that he has joined American philanthropist George Soros’s program to support Russian science. Berezovsky said that Soros, who has just granted $120 million to support scientific research in Russia, cannot alone back Russian scientists and scholars indefinitely, and that the time has come for Russian business to join him. Berezovsky, who is known as a firm supporter of Boris Yeltsin, said that his bank has allocated $1.5 million to finance the participation of Russian scientists in international conferences. (10)
