He said the recent expelling of Soviet author Alexander Solzhenitsyn was a "nervous reaction of nervous self deception" by the Soviet elite and expelling of dissident artists will not become policy. He said he and his wife hope someday to return to the Soviet Union, but not before a "rebirth of thought." "There aren't yet any signs of revolution.
