I am taking the liberty of sending the introduction and the
contents list of CDI Russia Weekly to the three UK Mailbase
lists which deal with the FSU and Eastern Europe:
russian-studies; east-west-research; post-socialist-areas.
The message refers to Johnson's Russia List. For your information,
this is an email magazine which appears daily with up to the minute
reports on current events. The size of JRL is usually around 46-47k
and, printed out, results in a document of about 15-17 A4 pages.
For those who do not want this amount of information, CDI Russia
Weekly is a weekly email of about the same size as JRL mainly
on foreign policy and national security issues.
If you would like me to forward you the full text of this issue of CDI
Russia Weekly, or you would like me to forward the latest number
of Johnson's Russia List for inspection, please email me.
If you wish to subscribe to JRL, send a normal message to David Johnson

if you receive two copies. The content of the Weekly is
different than that of JRL and is focused more on foreign
policy and national security issues. If you wish to become
a recipient of the Weekly please let me know. David]
