U.S. Scientists Seek Release of Soviet Jewish Chemist

NEW YORK (JTA) ---
More than 150 participants
at the 35th annual meeting
of the American Association
for Clinical Chemistry sent
a petition to Soviet
authorities appealing for
the release of Dr. Yuri Yar-
nopolsky, a 47-year-old
chemist from Kharkov, it
was reported by theCom-
mittee of Concerned Scien-
tists, an independent organ-
ization of 4,000 American
scientists dedicated to ad-
vancing human rights and
scientific freedom of col-
leagues worldwide.
Tarnoplosky was sen-
tenced on June 30 to three
years in a labor camp, the
maximum penalty for "de-
faming the Soviet state."
The sentence capped the
Soviet authorities'
longstanding campaign to

retaliation
Earlier
against Tarnopolsky in-
cluded his dismissal in 1979
from his professorship at
the Polytechnical Institute
in the Siberian city of Kras-
noyarsk. The author of more
than 60 scientific papers,
Tarnopolsky has since then
been prevented from work-
ing in his field.
Tarnopolsky's arrest
was part of stepped-up
harassment of Kharkov
emigiration activists,
which began with the
1981 sentencing of acous-
tic physicist Alexander
Paritsky to three years in
a labor camp.
Paritsky, along with Tar-
nopolsky and other Khar-
kov activists, had estab-
lished an unofficial univer-
sity for Jewish students de-
nied admittance to institu-
tions of higher learning be-
cause of anti-Semitic dis-
crimination, the committee
said.
Official opposition to the
university resulted not only
in the arrest of these two
leaders, but also in its forced
closing. In an extension of
these harassments, remain-
ing Kharkov activists have
been subjected to apartment

The
spearheaded by Marvin
Fell, an American research
and development chemist
long active in support of
human rights, took note of
Tarnopolsky's ill health and
asked Soviet leader Yuri
Andropov for "a favorable
ruling on his (Tarnopols-
ky's) appeal . . . considering
the privations he has al-
ready endured, and the ag-
gravating effect of his in-
ternment on his diabetic
condition."
Max Kampelman, the
chief United States dele-
gate to the Madrid Con-
ference on Security and
Cooperation in Europe,
declared here that he was
hopeful though not ex-
pectant that the "pro-
visional agreement"
reached in Madrid last
month would lead to the
improvement of the
human rights situation in
the Soviet Union.

Kampelman said that
during the course of the
Madrid follow-up confer-
ence the Soviet Union
"learned" that "we do hold
them accountable" for the
provisions of the 1975 Hel-
sinki accords.
At a press conference, fol-
lowing a July 14 prayer

Capitol, the day before the
provisional agreement was

Shcharansky expressed the

Soviets Allow
167 to Leave

NEW YORK (JTA) — In
July, 167 Jews were allowed
to leave the Soviet Union
with Israeli visas, the Na-
tional Conference on Soviet
Jewry reported. The figure
is higher than the monthly
average of approximately
100 people per month dur-
ing the first half of 1983.

ment, it would endanger her
husband, Anatoly, and
other Jewish activists and
dissidents imprisoned in the
Soviet Union.
Kampelman said that he
had met with Mrs.
Shcharansky at the State
Department July 25 and
sought to reassure her. But
he stressed that the Madrid
conference was never aimed
at arriving at agreements
that would deal with indi-
viduals by name.
However, he pointed out
that the plight of
Shcharansky and other
prisoners, Jews and non-
Jews, in the USSR was con-
stantly raised at Madrid by
him and other Western
spokesmen. He said it was

hoped that the Madrid con-
ference could lead to their
release and it is still hoped
that it may happen.
