Former U.S Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has been elected an international member of the Russian Academy of Sciences. 

This was announced at a conference in the academy, during which new members of the institution were voted in.

The 93 year-old German-born diplomat served as secretary of state in the 1970s. During a visit to Russia in February this year, Kissinger met with President Vladimir Putin. 

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
