The supercomputer is captured by the FSB

The Russian Federation’s lea­ding spe­cia­list in super­com­pu­ter sys­tems was first che­cked by the FSB “for trea­son”, then kept under house arrest for six months on sus­pi­cion of “finan­cing an extre­mist orga­ni­za­tion”. After fruit­less attempts to plant accor­ding to the pro­ven Soviet tra­di­tion, the “fool” is used. Sergei Abramov, cor­res­pon­ding mem­ber of the Russian Academy of Sciences, foun­der of a num­ber of inno­va­tive com­pa­nies, is plan­ned to be sent to a psy­chia­tric hos­pi­tal for three weeks on November 30 for “conduc­ting an inpa­tient exa­mi­na­tion.”Because the out­pa­tient moti­va­tion of the scien­tist who orga­nizes the super­com­pu­ter forum in Pereslavl-Zalessky, even while under inves­ti­ga­tion, the FSB could not unders­tand even after eight months.


« At first I thought it was a fake » — scien­tists on reli­gious fun­da­men­ta­lism of the Institute of General Genetics director 

A.M. Kudryavtsev, cor­res­pon­ding mem­ber of the RAS, direc­tor of the Vavilov Institute of General Genetics of the RAS, made a bla­tant­ly fun­da­men­ta­list pre­sen­ta­tion at a theo­lo­gi­cal confe­rence. He clai­med that muta­tions are cau­sed by sins, that human lifes­pans are shor­te­ning because bibli­cal cha­rac­ters lived for hun­dreds of years, and that Russia is for­ced to war because people in neigh­bo­ring coun­tries have mul­ti­plied too much. « At first I thought it was a fake,» write without col­lu­sion in res­ponse to the obs­cu­ran­tism Acad. Alexei Khokhlov and bio­in­for­ma­ti­cian Alexander Panchin. There is also a res­ponse from the head of the RAS Commission against Pseudoscience, Acad. Eugene Alexandrov.

Mikhail Sokolov has pos­ted detai­led remarks fol­lo­wing an inter­view with Victor Vakhshtayn publi­shed by T-inva­­riant. Spoiler alert : « Russian social scien­tists … do not need to aban­don Russian mate­rial in the past by era­sing it along with the part of their lives dedi­ca­ted to col­lec­ting it. If you unders­tand how the men­tal maps of the social sciences are arran­ged, … you can, hope­ful­ly, avoid such sacrifices. »
