The Minister of culture Vladimir Medinsky commented on the allegations that on October 4, the WAC for the meeting of the dissertation Council of the Ural Federal University (Urfu) will consider the issue of deprivation of a scientific degree of the doctor of historical Sciences. Recall that the number of doctors of historical Sciences and activist “Discerneth” spoke about the fact that the thesis of Medina about the problems of objectivity in the coverage of Russian history has no scientific value.
Medinsky has declared “to Interfax” that he hoped the experience and wisdom of the Council, noting that the question itself seems phantasmagoric and brings us back to the best times of the Soviet Union, when it was considered correct only one point of view.
He added that he would like to some scientists impose their point of view to the whole community.
Medina added that because the schedule will not be able to go to the meeting of the dissertation Council, but it will be his representative.
