math solidarity

vvprasolov в Европейское Математическое Общество выражает свою поддержку академику Васильеву
Eminent Russian mathematician detained and fined

The Russian mathematician Victor Vassiliev, member of the Russian academy of sciences and president of the Moscow Mathematical Society, famous for the invention of Vassiliev invariants in knot theory, was arrested in Moscow on February 21, 2014, as participant of a peaceful protest in support of the defendants of the Bolotnaya Square Case; he was released shortly afterwards. On March 5, Zamoskovoretsky Court in Moscow convicted him guilty of shouting slogans and resisting detention; he will have to pay a substantial fine. Prof. Vassiliev denies both charges. Several of his academic colleagues were witnesses on his behalf confirming that the charges are false.
The European Mathematical Society is deeply concerned about the use of the police and the courts against peaceful protest. The society expresses its warm support to Prof. Vassiliev.

О подробностях этой позорной для нашей страны истории я писал вчера: http://vvprasolov.livejournal.com/253870.html

"Several of his academic colleagues were witnesses on his behalf confirming that the charges are false." Всё-таки не напрасно я вчера выступал свидетелем в суде.

демографическое сообщество РФ, судя по всему, украинских коллег не поддержит, хотя те просили -- хорошо бы ошибицо с прогнозом
