ARTISTIC ASSASSINATION?
Famed Soviet dancer denied
exit visa b his. government

Sen. Eagleton

MOSCOW (4P) - one of 'the
Soviet Union's most talented dan-
cers says he is being made the
victim of a "planned artistic as-
s~assination."
Valery Panov, a Jew, was dis-
missed from the Kirov B a 11 e t
Company in Leningrad a year
ago yesterday and branded a
traitor because he asked to emi-
grate to Israel.
A man whose ability has been
compared with that of Rudolf
Nureyev, Panov has not been
able to practice properly since
then and fears he is losing his
talent he worked to develop for
nearly his entire life.
The authorities won't let him
leave, saying he can't get a
visa without his mother-in-law's
permission. Panoy contends his
wife's mother is a confused wo-
man terrorized by the periodic
visits the secret police pay her.

The dancer said it is illegal for
the authorities to let his mother-
in-law block his exit and has tried
to prove it, without success, in
the courts. But he thinks t h e
mother-in-law problem is just a
pretext.
"This is a planned artistic as-
sassination," Panov declared.
"I know no secrets. I h a v e
nothing to do with politics. I can-
not possibly harm the state by
going. But I am what you would
call a highly trained specialist."
Since he applied for a visa,
Panov added, "my telephone has
been cut off without explanation.
Half of the letters sent from with-
in the Soviet Union fail to reach
me and none of the mail from
friends abroad has been deliver-
ed."
Panov has written five letters
to Leonid Brezhnev, the Com-
munist party chief, and Premier

Alexei Kosygin asking their in-
tervention. Dozens of letters and
petitions from sympathizers have
been sent to the Kremlin on his
behalf.
But all Panov's pleas have fal-
len on deaf ears. He is still de-
nied his visa. When asked to ex-
plain the reason, a spokesperson
for the Soviet passport authority
would only mutter "we have our
instructions."
