        A leading Russian scholar has expressed his condolences for the terrorist attacks in an e-mail to a University of Cincinnati colleague.

        Dr. Arnold Schrier received the message from Moscow on Thursday:

        “My Dear American Friends and Colleagues,

        “Please, accept my deep condolences and a feeling of support for all of you in these tragic days.

        “Today, at noon, all my country had a minute of silence.

        “Summon up your courage. You are a great people.

        “Sincerely yours,

        “Valery Tishkov, Professor

        “Director of the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Russian Academy of Sciences.”

        Dr. Schrier, of Wyoming, is a retired professor whose specialty was Russian/Soviet history. He met the Russian in 1967.

        “He was finishing up his Ph.D. in Moscow State University and his specialty then was U.S. and Canadian history,” Dr. Schrier said on Friday. “He was an advisory tour guide for a group of academics who had gone over there. We struck up a very cordial relationship that we have maintained.”
