A Moscow band hunting for heads. For scientists’ heads

In Moscow, there is now a real hunt for science, to be more exact for scientists’ heads. Recently, the head of microbiology sub-faculty of Russian State Medical University (former Second Moscow Medical Institute), V.Korshunov was killed. The body of the killed professor with cranial injury was found on Friday, at 8.15 (Moscow time) in the entrance of the house in Academician Bakulev Street, in Southwest Administrative District, where the 56-year-old scientist lived. The police immediately arrived to the spot. Forensic medical experts found out that the scientist died 8 hours earlier. Afterwards, proceedings were instituted. It was already third death of a scientist, that witnessed it hardly could be a coincidence. Only within this January, Russian Academy of Science lost two scientists with world name – academician I.Glebov (who died as a result of a bandit attack in St Petersburg) and Corresponding Member of the Academy of Science A.Brushlinski (who was killed in Moscow). So, what is happening? At first, one was fighting against pseudo-science, than against brain drain, and now against what will we fight? This scientist has probably invented a vaccine protecting from any biological arm, or – quite the contrary – created such an arm, like Brushlinski who suffered for his creation. Russian science seems to literally die out. Academic degree is becoming too dangerous for its possessors.
