When after a speech in advance was the “fans” on the rostrum academician Vladimir Zakharov, he suddenly… turned off the microphone. Conducting the meeting the acting President of the Russian Academy of Sciences Valery Kozlov suggested the meeting first to vote on debates. There’s been some confusion, which could lead to failure, some of the academics was even ready to abandon discussion of the candidates and their programs. In the end, Kozlov still decided to give the floor to the ten academics who have previously expressed a desire to speak.

In turn I came to the microphone Vladimir Zakharov, who called to remove the “keepers” from management science (academician of the so called managers of managers from FANO), academician Eric Galimov, Mikhail Marov, who spoke for the candidacy of Robert Nigmatulin. After went speaking in favor of Alexander Sergeyev. For it was made by academician Nikolai Dobretsov, noting that he was impressed by the former President of the Academy of Sciences Vladimir Fortov, who urged all to vote for Sergeeva. For Sergeyev also said the academician Trutnev, calling on all to understand that at the helm of the Academy should be part of a young, sane academician. “And stop talking about someone else!” – Trutnev has declared. He was supported by academician Gennady Mesyats. “If we now again assume an error, as in 2013, this will be the final destruction of the Academy. To save the situation, we should choose its President, academician Sergeyev, heads the Institute with outstanding traditions, which have achieved outstanding scientific results. The choice of some of its competitors can be considered a control shot in the Academy. Believe me, I know the situation inside.”
