Letter: Clamour to ban Russian culture has eerie echoes

News

Gillian Tett poses the question what to do with Russian music (April 16). Ban it! The All England Club has now announced a ban on all Russians playing at Wimbledon (Opinion, April 23).

Art galleries around the world must take down their Kandinskys and the London mayor should also organise a public book burning of Dostoevsky’s works in Trafalgar Square.

Sound familiar?
