Soviet general to let his daughter emigrate

A Soviet Army general has agreed to give his hunger-striking daughter permission to leave the Soviet Union, the general's son-in-law told Monitor correspondent Daniel Southerland.

The son-in-law, Edward Lozansky, a former Soviet physicist now teaching at American University in Washington, D.C., said that he spoke by telephone June 10 with Gen. Ivan Yershov, chief of staff of Soviet civil defense. He quoted the general as saying he would give his daughter Tatyana Lozansky a statement required by Soviet law for an individual to leave the Soviet Union. Miss Lozansky and two other Soviet citizens have been on hunger strike for more than a month in an attempt to get permission to join their spouses in the West.
