We will remind that the fire in the Institute at the following address: Nakhimovsky Prospekt, 51 occurred on 30 January 2015. The result was a destroyed of 5.42 million specimens stored in the Institute of publications, including 2.32 million are considered hard-to-recover. The blame for the incident, namely the charges of negligence laid on the Director Yuri Pivovarov, in April 2015, was forced to resign by going to the position of scientific Director of the Institute. According to unofficial data, the criminal case against Pivovarov is still not closed, despite the protest of many of his colleagues, spoke in defense of the former Director.
Place Pivovarova year ago temporarily entrusted to the former Deputy, Dmitry Efremenko. Employees of the Institute were confident that Efremenko’s here to stay and will soon be appointed, however, a year later, in may 2016, it is shifted to Velihan Mirzekhanov – historian, former Dean of Saratov state University. This candidate was appointed from above, despite the dissatisfaction of the team in that it previously did not consult anyone. However, it later emerged that Mirzekhanov not satisfied with the top management. The cause is not yet known.
According to the staff of the Institute, with the appointment of Velihan Sammanhanget showed a good side, managed to hold several academic councils, was engaged in a project to restore the fire ravaged building. By the way, the translation of the book Depository in the former building of Akademsnab near the metro station “Kantemirovskaya” is treated very negatively. According to most employees, separated by a large distance the stacks and the reading room (it is scheduled to leave on Nakhimovsky Prospekt) will create a lot of difficulties to the readers and researchers of the Institute. In any case, Mirzekhanov promised subordinates that base decisions on this and other fundamental issues will not be accepted behind the scenes, and the opinion of employees will be taken into account.
To quickly review Mirzekhanova about his resignation failed.
