Publication: Monitor Volume: 1 Issue: 20

Washington has lifted the Cold Warrestrictions prohibiting American diplomats from having “intimate or romantic” contacts with Russians, according to a US Embassy Moscow press release May 25. Earlier the United States had dropped such restrictions on contacts with nationals of the other 14 former Soviet republics; the embassy said, however, that the old limitations would remain in force for Marine guards and others in sensitive positions.Note: The Monitor will not appear on Monday, May 29, because of the Memorial Day holiday.Copyright (c) 1995 The Jamestown Foundation
