Letter: Clamour to ban Russian culture has eerie echoes

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?
