Russian Ambassador to the United States Anatoly Antonov has delivered a speech at the 8th Annual Conference of the Russian American Science Association (RASA-USA) in Chicago, outlining his views on the cooperation between Russian and American scientists.
According to Antonov, the relations between the US and Russian scientists may "serve to cement the base for the rapprochement of the two countries."Meanwhile, Antonov stressed that RASA-USA is a good example of how science and education remain out of politics. Dedicated to the 150th anniversary of the US-Russian chemist and NWU professor Vladimir Ipatieff, this year the conference of the Russian American Science Association (RASA-USA) is being held for the eighth time. About 200 representatives of the scientific diaspora, Russian universities, as well as participants from Skolkovo, Skoltech, Rusnano, and Rusal, are taking part in the event.
