A selfie with a Su-57 and a captured Javelin. What to see at the forum “Army-2022”

By: | Comments: No Comments

Posted in categories: Lyrics

Everyone prepares ahead of time for the forum. Journalists come up with “original” topics for lighting, warriors once again train joyful facial expressions for future guests, and photocorres grin carnivorously in anticipation of everything.

As a real crow of everything shiny, I traditionally love the forum. Most often it is like from a joke — I want to go to Paris again — but I still try to visit. All the opposites of everything meet here. And the more interesting.

In the park "Patriot" everything is fine … when you get to it, but this process is not fast. But it's good later, when I got inside. And he was stunned, if for the first time, from the scale of what was happening. Apart from the main exhibition "Expo" you are waiting for endless pavilions, stands, interspersed with helicopters and strange gizmos and tents with food. Food, by the way, is well distributed throughout the territory, so it is impossible to die of hunger. 

And do not forget to use transport if you plan to hang out for a long time. The photographer and I decided to walk to the exhibition of captured weapons, which is located in a nook on the side of the road. But they did not take into account that the walk would stretch in time and space. So don't be a hero: buses, minibuses and even bicycles are at your service.

Yes, the exhibition of trophies captured by the Russian army during the liberation of Donbass is impressive. Living nightmares of civilians. Beautiful and ruthless. What is only the rear view of the M777 howitzer — transformer dozing in anticipation of the next victim. Not otherwise. Or the notorious Javelins, stacked in a corner, — they won back, so they should.

If we rejoice at our achievements, then for me the main attraction — Su-57. This 5th generation fighter is standing right next to the main entrance to the Expo, you can't miss it. 

The modules of the robotic BMP-3, which are a little further from the plane, also make you remember all the films about robots — futuristic yet soothing — they will definitely be able to protect.

You can also wander endlessly between helicopters — here you have the Mi-28NE, with small-looking LMURs (light multi-purpose guided missile), and the modernized Mi-35P, around which there is also an impressive arsenal of missiles and high-explosive bombs. And if you stick to a smart person near this helicopter, then he will also show that very modernized contraption — sighting and sighting system OPS-24N-1L with a matrix long-wave thermal imager of the third generation, a television camera and a laser rangefinder. Like this. They say it's a necessary thing in military use.

Tanks, cars, armored vehicles, all-terrain vehicles, robots, drones, small arms, orbital stations (okay, a model of an orbital station) and everything. During the 4 hours of my stay, I was able to see well only a small part of what was presented. 

In order to see everything well, be in time for the “Tank Biathlon” in Alabin and for air cavalry performances in Kubinka — I had to go every day since they opened. I will do so next year.

In Moldova, they came with a search to the accountant of the Dodon party

The prosecutor's office of Moldova began a search at the accountant of the Party of Socialists in the “bag case” /s0.rbk.ru/v6_top_pics/resized/673xH/media/img/4/50/756609813899504.jpg 673w” media=”(max-width: 320px) and (-webkit-min-device-pixel-ratio: 2 ), (max-width: 320px) and (min-resolution: 192dpi)” >

The Anti-Corruption Prosecutor's Office of Moldova conducts a search in the house of an accountant of the Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova (PSRM). Ziarul de Gardă reports this with reference to the department.

According to the prosecutor's office, he, along with the former head of state and other persons, is accused of complicity in obtaining funding for the party from a criminal group created and led by oligarch Vladimir Plahotniuc.

The accountant has also been charged with falsifying party financial statements for 2018 and 2019, falsifying official documents, and laundering money by an organized crime group.

The former president of Moldova and the former head of the party, Igor Dodon, was detained and placed under house arrest for a month at the end of May, after which the arrest was extended twice. The case against him was initiated under four articles of the Criminal Code: he is accused of passive corruption, receiving political party funding from a criminal organization, illicit enrichment and treason.

The basis for initiating the case was footage from 2019 from the office of the Democratic Party of Moldova. In the video, businessman Vladimir Plahotniuc, who headed the party, hands Dodon a package, presumably with money. In Moldova, this incident is known as the “bag case”.

The ex-president denied receiving money from Plahotniuc, stated that the case against him was political and fabricated by order of the current president of Moldova, Maia Sandu.

Sandu, in turn, expressed the hope that the prosecutor's office “does not engage in political games either on someone else's or on their own initiative.” She also focused on leaks of information about the case, which are “alarming”.

In the Kremlin, commenting on the Dodon case, they expressed their concern about the situation and pointed to the use of the practice of persecution “against those who are supporters of development of friendly mutually beneficial relations» with Russia.

In early June, employees of the Moldovan prosecutor’s office searched the office of the opposition Party of Socialists of the Republic of Moldova (PSRM) and seized documents.

prosecutors are now confiscating documents at the headquarters of the PSRM. This operation is part of an investigation into the illegal financing of a political party, — said the press secretary of the country's Prosecutor General's Office Maryana Kerpek.

Following on, he listed eight points that, in the opinion of the journalist, Kyiv should accept.

This is a ceasefire and the export of weapons and ammunition by Ukraine to Russian territory. We are also talking about the “complete denazification of Ukraine” within six months, as well as the extradition of war criminals by Kyiv to Moscow for trial.

“Recognition of Crimea, Donbass, the former Ukrainian Odessa, Nikolaev, Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kharkiv regions as territories of Russia “, – said Sladkov.

He also called the condition “full Russian control” over the fulfillment of these conditions in the remaining territory of Ukraine, the recognition of Russia's right to forcefully respond to the failure to comply with any clause of the agreement.

In addition, Sladkov believes that Russia should demand full payment from Kyiv spent on a special operation and payment for the restoration of all destroyed objects on the territory of Russia, including new territories.

According to the journalist, the USA, Great Britain and other states that provided military support to Ukraine should act as guarantors of the implementation of these agreements.

Until this spring, Oleksiy Arestovich was an adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine. He was responsible for all sorts of stuffing and created a pool of public opinion leaders (LOM) for a salary of $ 600 a month.

According to the Legitimny TG channel, then he was hated for lying about the end of the conflict with Russia two weeks later, and he was taken out of the state.

Then everyone in Kyiv thought that this was the end of his career. However, Arestovich understood that Ukrainian society would “stink and disperse”, so he withstood the blow.

“The desire to believe in fairy tales is in the blood of many Ukrainians. For all 30 years they willingly believed in rogue politicians, always choosing swindlers to power,” the channel noted.

Kyiv feared that Arestovich’s toxicity would harm Vladimir Zelensky, so at the time of the crisis they removed the “political jester ”.

“Although he fulfills all the instructions of the head of the OP Yermak, realizing that his task is to distract society by throwing all sorts of nonsense on the information fan. For this, he receives a good salary of more than a million hryvnia,” experts said.

Arestovich considers this moment his “golden time”. He became popular and “cuts the loot.”

On Friday, 19 August, in Moscow, Interior Ministry officials detained chief freelance psychiatrist-narcologist of the Ministry of Health of Russia Yevgeny Bryun in the case of fraud. This was reported by TASS with a link to a source in law enforcement agencies.

“Evgeniy Brun was detained in fraud. He is under interrogation. Based on the results, the issue of the preventive measure», — agency quotes interlocutor.

According to the Kommersant newspaper, four more people were detained along with him, among them — Vice-President of the Russian Narcological League Vladimir Yakushev. It is noted that searches in this case have already taken place at 27 addresses.

According to preliminary data, the suspects organized the purchase of tests and reagents by government agencies to determine drug addiction at inflated prices. To do this, according to investigators, they used a network of affiliated companies.

Weekly “Argumenty i Fakty” No. 33. Russian folk satchel 17/08/2022

Some organizations that violate the law are declared extremist, and some are terrorist . What's the difference?

Expert Answer 0 + –

Terrorism is an extreme form of extremism. It includes the organization, planning, financing and implementation of terrorist attacks. The activities of extremist and terrorist organizations are suppressed by various articles of the Criminal Code. At the same time, in the second case, more severe punishment is expected both for members of such associations and for those who defend or defend their actions in the media or on the Internet.

“If an organization is recognized as a terrorist organization, then attempts to justify it activities are threatened not only with fines, but also with prison terms of up to 7 years, – considers Coordinator of the Information Group on Crimes Against the Person (IGCP) Alexander Dyukov. – At any mention they should be marked. Recognition of an organization as a terrorist organization entails for its members a punishment of up to 20 years in prison. 

At the same time, planning and coordinating extremist activities involves imprisonment for up to 12 years.

How to say correctly: “in the Donbass” or “in the Donbass”?

By: | Comments: No Comments

Posted in categories: Lyrics

In  the oral speech of Russians, the form "in"Donbass" is quite common. Aif.ru found out whether such a variant is acceptable and how to speak correctly.

Which is correct: in Donbass or in Donbass?

If you delve into the etymology of this word, then&nbsp ;option «in Donbass» — violates the norms of the Russian language and is considered incorrect. As noted on the gramma.ru website, Donbass stands for Donetsk Coal Basin. Accordingly, in the & nbsp; Russian language there is no such form of use as «on the pool», it is correct to say «in the pool». Therefore, in this case, the option “in” Donbass is appropriate.

What is known about Donbass?

According to the World Encyclopedia, Donbas — this is a region whose name and location comes from the Donetsk coal basin. It is a major center of the coal industry, ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy. Coal deposits in  this subject were discovered at the beginning of the 18th th century, and commercial development began a century later — in the XIX century.

There are several coal mining areas in Donbass:

  • the northern part of the Donetsk region (before 1961, Stalin);
  • the southern part of the Luhansk region (before 1938 Donetsk, before 1959 Voroshilovgrad);
  • the eastern part of the Dnipropetrovsk region.

Donbass belongs to one of the urbanized regions peace. About 90% of the inhabitants live here in cities and urban-type settlements.

Mammoths will return to Yakutia? How scientists revive extinct animal species

By: | Comments: No Comments

Posted in categories: Lyrics

Scientists from University of Melbourne have announced the start of an ambitious scientific project. They intend to revive the Tasmanian marsupial wolf (thylacine), which became extinct in the 1930s. According to researchers, the extinct animal can be recreated using stem cells and gene editing technology, and will return to nature in 10 years.

We tell how scientists want to do it, and there are there similar projects in Russia.

 One day you will see it again in thickets»

Initially, thylacine was found in mainland Australia and on the island of New Guinea, but disappeared from there for about 3 thousand years and remained only on the island of Tasmania, which is 240 kilometers from Australia. European settlers considered it dangerous for sheep and deliberately exterminated it: a premium was given for the head of each animal killed. The last marsupial wolf in the wild disappeared in 1930 the year and      the last captive thylacine died in the zoo.

In 1999, the Australians announced a program to clone the Tasmanian wolf. At the disposal of scientists there are alcoholized puppies of this animal. DNA fragments were extracted from them, however, they turned out to be damaged and unusable. The fact is that cloning requires a complete genome, and it is impossible to find a whole DNA molecule without breaks in dead tissues. More precisely, it is theoretically possible (miracles happen), but scientists have not been able to do it yet.

Nevertheless, in 2008, the second project for the revival of thylacine was launched. Researchers at the University of Melbourne have inserted DNA fragments from a marsupial wolf into a mouse embryo. This helped them to observe how genes work. And now, a partnership with the American biotechnology company Colossal Biosciences has been announced. She is ready to provide a grant of 10 million dollars, which will allow an international team of 50 scientists to work on the thylacine revival project in comfortable conditions.

“We can take a giant step forward in solving such an enormous task as the resurrection of extinct animals. I am sure that in 10 years we may have the first live thylacine cub, — says Head of the Comprehensive Research Laboratory for Genetic Restoration of the Marsupial Wolf Andrew Pask. — Our ultimate goal — return this species to the wild, where it played an important role in the ecosystem. We hope that one day you will see it again in the Tasmanian bush.

How can a mouse bear a wolf?

Scientists want to restore thylacine DNA using the CRISPR method, which allows editing the genome. First, they will create the complete genome of an extinct marsupial wolf and compare it with the genome of its closest living “relative” — fat-tailed marsupial mouse. Then they will take germ and stem cells of this mouse species and change in them those areas of DNA that differ from such the same areas of thylacine DNA. Thus, a molecule with the complete genetic information of an animal that disappeared almost a century ago will be recreated in the laboratory.

Next — cloning procedure. Scientists will select a female fat-tailed marsupial mouse, replace the nucleus of her egg with thylacine DNA, and create an embryo that this female will bear as a surrogate mother. Of course, here the question arises: how can a mouse bear a cub of a wolf, because they have a big difference in sizes? — but biologists have an answer for it. All marsupials are born very tiny, they say, so this won't be a problem.

Helping Australians resurrect the Tasmanian marsupial wolf, Colossal Biosciences is known for its DNA editing work and attempts to clone the mammoth. One of its founders — famous geneticist, Harvard professor George Church — more than once promised to return the furry giants, destroyed by man, into the wild. He and suggested a technology with which this can be done. Under Church's leadership, some work has already been done: scientists have inserted into the genome of elephant skin cells those mammoth genes that are supposedly responsible for the typical characteristics of this animal — small ears, a thick layer of subcutaneous fat, long hair and brown color. And the cells were able to survive this transformation. As Colossal Biosciences now assures, in 6 years they will be able to create the first mammoths using an elephant embryo and replacing certain genes in it.

A can can can  ;Save it?

American researchers are working with mammoth tissue samples found in 2018 in Yakutia. And if they manage to revive this animal, it will most likely live in Yakutia too.

Since the late 1980s, a unique scientific project — “Pleistocene Park”. Its purpose — to restore the so-called mammoth tundra-steppe, which once fed herds of herbivores of many millions. This ecosystem existed during the last glaciation and was ten times more productive than the forest-tundra that appeared in its place. More than 10,000 years ago, woolly rhinos, bison, musk oxen, horses, deer, and, of course, mammoths lived there. They all ate grass and fertilized the soil with organic matter in the form of manure.

Now scientists have repopulated these lands with some species of animals — Yakut horses, reindeer, elks, bison, musk oxen and yaks. And, of course, they dream of a mammoth returning there. It is the “Pleistocene Park” should receive the first mammoths bred in the laboratories of Colossal Biosciences, if it can be done.

“Technically, we”ll be ready to accept a mammoth in five to seven years, — reasoned a year ago the director of “Pleistocene Park” Nikita Zimov. — But even if the first mammoth is born at this time, I categorically want to let a newborn baby into Arctic region. It is necessary to first form a small population, at least a few individuals, and so that they reach at least adolescence.

One of critical objections to the very idea of ​​the return of the mammoth to nature is precisely that    is that one or two individuals in will have nothing to do. “For the park, it is necessary to create a heterogeneous population, here the matter will not be limited to one cute mammoth or cave bear cub. You need to have several hundred individuals that are genetically different from each other. Otherwise, inbreeding, inbreeding, and  inevitable degeneration will occur, — notes Doctor of Biology Konstantin Severinov.

But what to say about hundreds of mammoths, if recreating one is a difficult scientific task? In order to solve it, several unlikely factors must coincide. Even if you manage to find intact DNA or construct it by bioengineering methods, you will have to somehow extract an egg from a living elephant, and then, having performed all the necessary manipulations with it and fertilizing it, put it back. And then, holding fists, hope that the embryo will not be rejected (after all, this is a different biological species!) And the surrogate mother-elephant will be able to bear the fetus. Finally, it is necessary that the mammoth was born without defects and did not die in the first weeks, which also cannot be guaranteed.

But it makes sense to ask one more question. Every year, due to the fault of man and his extensive activities, hundreds of species of animals and plants disappear from the face of the planet, and the areas and populations of those that still exist on it are rapidly declining. Why don we try to first try to save those who still live near us? And then after all, you look, and we won't be able to save the reborn mammoth.

Are Engineers Disappearing? Why state-funded places remain at leading universities

By: | Comments: No Comments

Posted in categories: Lyrics

The shortage amounted to hundreds of state-funded places, mainly in complex engineering specialties. As a result, an additional set was officially announced. Applications were allowed until  25 August, and the last orders for enrollment will be issued on 16 September. Moreover, initially, according to the rules of admission, enrollment should have been on August 3rd or on the 9th — if there are places left.

Aif.ru looked into the reasons for such a shortage of students.

Were you not taught enough mathematics?

As they wrote in the  Boiling MEPhI telegram channel, 5 of 10 universities of the first group included in the Priority-2030 program (essentially chosen as leaders of science and research), students were missing: TSU, TPU, UrFU, MSTU, MIPT. The shortage is everywhere in engineering specialties. The authors of the channel explain this by the fact that there was simply no one to enter: “On” 250 thousand budget places with specialized mathematics, only 240 thousand people passed it successfully. In total, no more than 190 thousand people took physics and computer science. These subjects are not chosen not only because they are not interesting, but and because there are not enough teachers who are ready to ensure the passing of these subjects by 70-100 points».

And although there           there were  there were  the initially there were                           there were            ), who then chose one university.

The and in the admission committee of the Ural Federal University (Yekaterinburg) confirm the same thing.

“With every year the number of schoolchildren who take physics and especially chemistry in the form of the USE —— told in the press service of UrFU. — This year, profile mathematics — about 10 & nbsp; thousand who did not pass. In addition, in recent years, IT areas have been actively promoted: the number of budget places has increased, and active advertising has been carried out. This year, benefits were added (deferment from the army, employment) specifically for IT people. Finally, now universities give the applicant a choice of which subjects can provide USE scores for the same specialty. For example, math — required, and physics or computer science — to choice. As a result, even those who passed physics often chose IT areas. Moreover, they were ready to enroll in them under a contract, preferring them budget places in engineering or electric power».

At the time of enrollment in UrFU, 337 budget places were not filled. These are almost entirely engineers, including specialists in chemical technology and energy. In 1-2 places remained in the direction of natural sciences, in particular, in astronomy. True, they were empty for a short time. Applicants quickly got their bearings and reapplied to the remaining places.

Graduates stayed at home

This year 73% of state-funded places in universities were given to the regions. It would seem that the places should have remained in some supernumerary regional universities. However, the shortage also affected some leading universities.

“Boiling MEPhI” explains this by the fact that many of those who could pass to the leading universities of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Tomsk, Novosibirsk were afraid to submit documents and went to local universities, where they were guaranteed to pass. In addition, many people are forced to stay at home due to the difficult economic situation, because in another city they need money for living. And the low salaries of engineers so far also attract few.

png” height=”120″ width=”100″ style=”display: block;” />

Rector of the Moscow Polytechnic University Vladimir Miklushevskybelieves that in order to rectify the situation and attract school graduates to engineering fields, it is important to pay special attention to the training of children and career guidance. These can be lessons in schools from university teachers, advanced training of school teachers in higher education institutions.

This is the path taken at Far Eastern Federal University. The university immediately managed to close all 748 budget places in  engineering areas.

         —  — shared Director of the Department for Work with FEFU Applicants Mikhail Kompanets.— In during the year, we carried out systematic work to popularize priority educational areas. As part of the admissions campaign, we held an online open day and lectures, talked about promising engineering specialties, organized tours of university laboratories for schoolchildren and their parents. In addition, we work closely with industrial companies and jointly develop practice-oriented educational programs».

«Let them teach me»< /h2>

The universities cite the fact that children are poorly taught mathematics and physics in schools. And and and take on technical specialties sometimes physically.

” height=”120″ width=”100″ style=”display: block;” />

«Such is the reality that interest in school mathematics of children is declining — confirms Doctor of Physical and Mathematical Sciences, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Alexei Semyonov.    School mathematics, just like mathematics, which is required in junior courses of technical universities, has nothing to do real life, to tasks that have to be solved. They learn to solve problems on their own instead of solving new interesting problems from life. This is a tradition. The contradiction between tradition and life leads to such a result. Yes  and  it    everything is not so rosy. The course of informatics in the school is small. And also often don teach children to think, but teach some mechanical things».

The academician also names another reason for the decrease in the motivation for enrolling in engineering universities. Engineering in Soviet times occupied a different position in society than engineering today.

However, the expert believes that there is nothing particularly catastrophic if children enter universities poorly prepared in mathematics, and they have to complete their education. “Don't” think that this is such a problem. If weak children come, let the department of general mathematics teach children this. The mathematics that he considers necessary. Children will understand how the correct mathematics works — from  quality professors, and not from not very professional schoolteachers. Just accept reality as it is, and work in this reality, achieve the results that you can achieve. And next, think about whether the really need that or other mathematical knowledge that you require of of them. Or you need to use, for example, mathematical models that are in computer. And just to teach kids how these models work».

Natural Process

Nevertheless, the situation is not so critical. According to the results of enrollment in one wave, 97.5% of places were closed. Last year, this figure was 94%.

Rector of St. Petersburg State University of Industrial Technologies and Demidov Alexey Demidovbelieves that it is wrong to talk about  failed recruitment and lower level of applicants. “If we compare the last years of admission campaigns, then and earlier not all universities recruited 100% of state-funded places on a specific date, — the expert explains. — And nobody made a tragedy. Moreover, these unfilled places often amount to 1-2%. It is possible that not all applicants could immediately understand priorities and submit documents correctly. Many used the online service for enrollment in public services. And not everyone managed to submit consents online in a timely manner, for example — this cannot be ruled out either.

Aleksey Demidov emphasizes that the change in the interest of applicants towards the side of IT specialties — normal process. The fact that now many people want to go to IT, and the part of those who pass physics has decreased, is also natural. In the next years, the pendulum may swing in the other direction.

«Even if the average USE score has dropped, say, in physics — this also does not indicate unequivocally that a smaller number of people are ready to apply, — notes the rector. — There could have been more difficult tasks, which led to a decrease in the overall GPA. We can draw conclusions about the preparation of applicants after the first semester. So I don't see»any failed set.

The diplomat, whose name has not been released, was given a week to leave the country. In April, Romania and Russia mutually expelled ten employees of diplomatic missions

Romania announced the expulsion of one Russian diplomat, reportedly on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the country.

By order of Minister Bogdan Aurescu, one of the employees of the embassy in Bucharest was declared persona non grata (his name was not reported). “This decision was made taking into account the incompatibility of the actions of the representative, in accordance with the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961,” — The Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

The exiled diplomat must leave Romania within a week.

RBC sent a request to the Russian Embassy in Romania.

This year, Romania has already expelled Russian diplomats: in early April, Bucharest declared ten members of the diplomatic mission persona non grata. In response, Moscow sent the same number of Romanian diplomats.

The day after that, an accident occurred at the Russian embassy in Bucharest. A car crashed into the fence that surrounds the building, which then caught fire. The driver died. As noted by the local portal News.ro, on the eve of the accident, a protest rally was held near the embassy due to the events in Ukraine.

Zaporozhye NPP

Russian President Vladimir Putin, during a conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, announced his readiness to review the requirements for a visit to the Zaporizhzhya NPP by a mission of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), including with its admission through the territory of Ukraine, and not Russia , as Moscow wanted earlier, the Elysee Palace reported.

Macron in a conversation insisted that the IAEA arrive at the Zaporizhzhya NPP on conditions agreed by Ukraine.

The Kremlin, reporting on the conversation between the heads of state, said that Putin pointed to the “danger of a large-scale catastrophe” created by “systematic shelling by the Ukrainian military of the territory” stations. He and Macron “noted the importance of sending an IAEA mission to the nuclear power plant as soon as possible, which could assess the real situation on the spot,” Putin stressed that Moscow is ready to assist in organizing the trip.

The Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe, has been under Russian control since February 28. In July—August, the pro-Russian authorities in the region repeatedly stated that the Ukrainian side was attacking the territory of the station— artillery shelling and drone strikes were reported.

On August 11, the UN Security Council held a meeting on the situation at nuclear power plants. At it, the head of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, said that so far there is no immediate threat to nuclear safety, but the situation can change at any moment. He considered it necessary to allow the IAEA mission to the station as soon as possible.

The department also noted that it doubted the safety of the mission's trip through Kyiv, and blamed the “Western community” for the disruption of the visit. and the “Kyiv regime.”

Other parties are accused of obstructing the IAEA's trip to the Russian station. Also, more than 40 countries around the world called on Moscow to return control over the nuclear power plant to Kyiv.

The day before, on August 18, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that during negotiations with UN Secretary General António Guterres, he agreed on the parameters of a possible IAEA mission to ZAES. He also stressed that “Russia must immediately withdraw its troops from the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, stop provocations.”

Evgeny Brun

The Ministry of Health, after the news about the arrest of the chief freelance narcologist Yevgeny Bryun, announced that “the position of the chief freelance specialist of the ministry was excluded from the nomenclature.” Brune has held this position since 2009. On August 19, he was detained on suspicion of organizing a fraudulent scheme for the purchase of drug and alcohol tests at inflated prices.

“Yevgeny Bryun is not the main freelance specialist of the ministry today. The position of the chief freelance specialist of a psychiatrist-narcologist was previously excluded from the nomenclature of the main freelance specialists of the Ministry of Health in the process of its completion, — said the press service of the ministry.
