Just as Congressional hearings get underway on how recent takeovers and layoffs of the three major networks are diminishing news gathering power, CBS has announced it is sending several of its newspeople to the Soviet Union for a two-hour prime-time special to air in mid-June. CBS has put together a team of heavy-hitters that includes "CBS Evening News" anchor Dan Rather and "60 Minutes" reporters Diane Sawyer and Mike Wallace. The purpose of the trip, said CBS News president Howard Stringer, is to "provide a window on Soviet life.

Richard Nixon turned out to be more persuasive than any economist in the debate over Western aid to the former Soviet Union. It was frightening enough when both right- and left-wing columnists raised the ghost, "Who (will have) lost Russia?" Then there was Nixon, whose lasting strength is his instinct for the political jugular. He warned that not putting in an additional $20 billion or so for Russia would be a tragic error that would be responsible for a disaster of immense historical proportions.

Beneath the veneer of competence, the Bush administration's strategy toward the former Soviet Union is a dangerously ineffective response to the greatest democratic awakening and market-opening opportunity of the 20th century. Just as Americans recognize how the administration has mismanaged the economy, they must now comprehend how its hesitant foreign policy jeopardizes our national security and economic interests. Boris Yeltsin recently told congressional leaders that Russia is "in a fight for survival" and had only three months to turn things around.

"Born American. " An action film starring Mike Norris. Directed by Renny Harlin from a screenplay by Markus Selin and Harlin. Photographed by Henrik Paerchs. Edited by Paul Martin Smith. Music by Richard Mitchell. Running time: 96 minutes. A Cinema Group release. In area theaters. If there were any doubts in my mind that the movie industry is being run indirectly by its teen-age audience, this past weekend squelched them. Two new movies opened, both of them variations on older films and both of them renovated for teen-agers, specficially for teen-age boys.

Dan Fritsche scored twice - including a short-handed goal - to lead the defending champion United States to a 5-4 win over Russia last night in the opening round of the World Junior Hockey Championship in Grand Forks, N.D. The Americans will have a tough time repeating as champions because Canada has emerged as the tournament favorite. Patrice Bergeron and Sidney Crosby combined for seven points for Canada, which beat Slovakia, 7-3, in its opening game. In another opening-round game, Petr Vrana scored three goals to lift the Czech Republic to a 7-2 victory over Belarus.

Nomads living on the windswept tundra of northeastern Chukotka, a kayak ride from Alaska, were depositing ballots in plywood boxes for helicopter pickup as voting began today in the marathon, 24-hour first round of a presidential election that will decide whether Russia continues with free-market reforms or returns to its Communist past. As voters in this sprawling and diverse land go to the polls, they are rendering a verdict on President Boris N. Yeltsin and his reform policies.

Ilya Kovalchuk scored his second goal of the game in overtime, giving Russia its first title at the world hockey championships since 1993 with a 5-4 win over Canada yesterday in Quebec City. Canada took a 4-2 lead into the third period, but couldn't hold off the Russians. Alexei Tereshchenko and Kovalchuk scored to tie it, setting the stage for the overtime winner. Rick Nash was sent to the penalty box after accidentally sending the puck over the glass from his own end. The Russians then put out four forwards for the four-on-three advantage and Kovalchuk beat Canadian goalie Cam Ward with a wrist shot at 2:42 of the extra period.

By James Heinzen I caught a glimpse of Vladimir Putin's Russia in a Moscow police station 25 years ago. The USSR was disintegrating around me. I was a University of Pennsylvania graduate student in Russian history spending a year in Moscow poring over newly declassified Soviet Communist Party archives. As I immersed myself in documents that revealed startling details about the aftermath of the 1917 Russian Revolution, the revolution of 1991-92 was transforming the Soviet Union. Although on the streets things seemed orderly, beneath the surface it was clear that the situation was precarious.

Eli Lake is a Bloomberg View columnist For the last year, Secretary of State John Kerry has worked and worked to get Russia to help end Syria's civil war. He has cajoled. He has sniped. He has spent countless hours in meetings and on the phone with his counterpart, Sergei Lavrov. And he pretty much has nothing to show for it. This point was driven home Tuesday when Russia announced it had started bombing missions from a base inside Iran. It was the latest in a series of humiliations for Kerry.

TRENTON - Gov. Christie on Tuesday brushed aside reports of ties between Donald Trump's campaign chairman and a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine, saying the issue doesn't reflect on the GOP presidential candidate. At a Statehouse news conference, the governor, a top Trump backer, also dismissed the idea that the candidate's prediction of a "rigged" election was dangerous, and said that despite Trump's trailing poll numbers, he wasn't worried that Trump's chances of winning in November were dwindling.

ISSUE | CAMPAIGN 2016 Trump crosses the line of treason For Donald Trump to encourage a foreign adversary like Russia to meddle in a U.S. presidential election (which shows he cares more about his own interests than the interests of America), to encourage Russia to publicize stolen U.S. government emails (some of which might contain classified information), and to encourage Russia to hack Hillary Clinton's private email account is traitorous ("Trump urges Russia to find emails," Thursday)

Hours after Donald Trump said he hoped Russia had hacked into Hillary Clinton's private server and obtained some of her email correspondence as secretary of state, GOP surrogates sought to reshape Trump's message. "I'm sure what he means is they should be released to the FBI," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said at a news conference in South Philadelphia, referring to the roughly 30,000 emails Clinton deleted, which she has said were personal in nature. The State Department had requested Clinton's emails to comply with a House investigation into the 2012 attack on the American Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

BECAUSE MAJOR League Baseball, the NBA, NFL, NHL and the NCAA do not fall under the jurisdiction of the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), the international quasi-judicial body rarely crosses the consciousness of the American sports fan. On Thursday, however, the CAS will render a verdict that will have major ramifications on the biggest sporting event on the planet - the 2016 Summer Olympics. In June the International Association of Athletics Federation (IAAF) banned track and field athletes from Russia from competing in the Olympics next month in Rio de Janeiro because of an alleged state-sponsored doping scandal.

Call Shostakovich one of the latter. His music is played around the world, but he also stands by the elevator in his fifth-floor apartment many nights, a valise packed with his favorite cigarettes, in case he is arrested by the NKVD.

As many as 36 people died in what could be Russia's deadliest coal mine accident since 2010 after a series of gas blasts led rescue efforts to be called off. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich spoke to reporters at the Severnaya mine in Vorkuta on Sunday, according to Interfax. Efforts to find 26 miners missing after a Thursday blast at the mine were called off after a government-company technical council concluded there can't be any survivors, Denis Paikin, technical director for Vorkutaugol, which operates the mine, said earlier in the day. Vorkutaugol is a unit of billionaire Alexey Mordashov's Severstal PJSC.

As the Kremlin stokes the conflict in Ukraine and ratchets up tensions with NATO, there's lots of talk about a Cold War redux. So it was fascinating to hear Mikhail Khodorkovsky - the billionaire oil magnate whom Russian President Vladimir Putin imprisoned for a decade - describe a Russia that could be a democratic ally of America and Europe 10 or 20 years from now. "Sooner or later, the system will collapse," Khodorkovsky told the Atlantic Council...
