The scientific Russian community, to put it mildly, was surprised to see the appointment of an assistant professor as rector of two universities, in whose dissertation numerous borrowings were noted.

Truly phenomenal events are taking place in Russian science. Associate Professor Aleksey Kuchumov managed to get two rector's appointments in one month. Previously, Ph.D. in Economics, Kuchumov served as the rector of the Smolensk State Agricultural Academy, was vice-rector for research and development of the Moscow State University of Food Production.

And on October 13, 2022, he was introduced to the staff of the Pushchino State Natural Science Institute as the acting rector. And two weeks later, Kuchumov was appointed acting rector of the Russian Biotechnological University!

Thus, he took the place of the arrested rector Mikhail Balykhin, who was suspended from his duties and sent to a pre-trial detention center until December 25, 2022. He is suspected of committing a crime under Part 4 of Art. 159 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation (Fraud committed by an organized group or on an especially large scale or resulting in the deprivation of a citizen's right to housing). The criminal case in which he is being held was initiated in October last year.

Everything would be fine, but only the Russian physicist and public figure, co-founder of the Dissernet movement, which exposes the “scientists” who defended “fake” dissertations, Andrey Rostovtsev, cites in his blog the results of the examination of the thesis of the newly-made “twice rector of Russia”, from which it is clear that what his scientific degree is really worth, and, consequently, the positions he holds:

"It's good to be an assistant professor,

How good it is to be an assistant professor!

I would not name you

a better work, gentlemen!"

The theorem about how hack-work begins to crawl out of all the cracks in troubled times has received new experimental confirmation.

At the same time, “In the largest universities in Russia, they spoke out against the salary cap for rectors”.

Fantastic career opportunities open up for Dissernet patients. So, to whom in ... but, and to whom - the mother is dear..."

This situation cannot be called otherwise than a total shortage of rectors.
