REFORM OF THE RUSSIAN ACADEMY OF SCIENCES

 Russian Government has initiated reforms of the Russian academy of sciences. Besides the aims of reforms, new bill presented to the Russian Parliament for approval will certainly affect many (if not say all) scientists, research groups and change the ongoing work on all project including international researches. Here we provide collection of materials to let our partners know what is going on here, in Russia, with the academic science.

THE APPEAL of the constantly working Conference of scientists of RAS “The present and future of science in Russia”

On 17th of September the Russian parliament, the State Duma is going to make an unprecedented decision leading to the destruction of the Russian Academy of Sciences and causing an irreversible damage to Russian science and whole country.

Administration of the President presented the variant of the bill №305828-6 to the Federal Assembly. According to this bill all institutes of RAS will be transferred under the control of the newly created bureaucratic agency which is certainly unable to manage science. The massive protest of the Russian scientific community rose against this decision was supported by thousands of foreign scientists including dozens of Nobel laureates. More than 119 thousands of Russian citizens have signed the petition to withdraw this bill.

The agreement between the President of the Russian Federation and the President of the RAS achieved by September 4, 2013 has been grossly violated in this version of the bill. This substantially undermines the reputation of the President of the Russian Federation.

We call on deputes of the State Duma and Federal Assembly not to pass a law that is rejected by scientific community and we ask the President to come back to agreements with the President of Russian Academy of Sciences.

ON CONTINUING THE CONFERENCE (from the Russian text on www.rasconference.ru)

Resolution of the Conference of scientists of theRussianAcademyof Sciences "The present and future of science in Russia. The place and role of the RussianAcademyof Sciences"

Moscow, 29-30 August, 2013

Considering:

  • the uncertainty of the perspectives for further promotion of the draft law "On the Russian Academy of Sciences" at the State Duma,
  • the unpredictability of legislative and executive powers' further steps concerning the RAS,
  • the necessity for an effective interaction between the scientific community and the RAS General Meeting and the RAS Presidium,

we believe it necessary to not close the Conference of scientists of the RAS, but make it permanently standing. In order to do this we instruct the Organizing Committee of the Conference to:

1) continue its work and, if necessary, resume the meetings of the Conference;

2) keep in working order the internet resources of the Conference and publish there updates on the situation around the RAS;

3) maintain and develop the newly emerged horizontal communications and the other resources which assure the continuity of the Conference functioning.

 

Apeal of Academicians to the President of Russia and Parliament Chairmen (First of July Club)

To:
the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin
the Chairman of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko
the Chairman of the State Duma of the Russian Federation Sergey Naryshkin
the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev

We hereby express our categorical rejection of the draft federal law "Concerning the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Reorganization of the State Academies of Sciences and Amendments to Various Legislative Acts of the Russian Federation" submitted to the State Duma. Since we cannot regard the proposed "new Academy" as a legitimate or worthy successor and replacement for the existing Russian Academy of Sciences as founded by Peter I, we want to make it clear that should
the law be passed, we will refuse to join this "new Academy".

MOMENTS OF THE SPRING
Adonis amurensis

"На проталинах, чуть тронутых дыханием весны, сквозь жухлую прошлогоднюю листву пробивается желтоцвет амурский. Желтоцвет открывает весну. В народе его называют подснежник, так как это первое растение, которое появляется сразу после таяния снега. Желтоцвет радует нас крупными золотистыми цветками, ярко горящими на солнце, отсюда одно из названий растения – горицвет.

... В период цветения стебли покрыты чешуевидными листьями, из пазух которых позднее развиваются крупные, рассеченные на узкие доли, зеленые листья. При этом облик растения меняется до неузнаваемости.

Цветет со второй половины марта..."
