More than 50 full members and corresponding members of the Russian Academy of Sciences have appealed to the authorities with the appeal «Stop nightmare education!»
The reason for the open letter was the case of the rector of the Moscow Higher School of Social and Economic Sciences (MSSES, in common parlance — «Shaninka») S. E. Zuev, accused under Art. 159-4 of the Criminal Code of the Russian Federation («Fraud on an especially large scale»).
Zuev is charged with participation in embezzlement in the total amount of 21 million rubles, and in small things — violations in the states (dead souls).
Academicians unconditionally reject these accusations: “The very fact of this accusation seems to us absurd: it is impossible to imagine that Sergei Eduardovich Zuev was involved in any fraud or embezzlement. state awards), an impeccable academic and public reputation completely exclude such a possibility. «
Or, as the cult worker Umrikhin said at Ilf and Petrov about another cult worker: «This one will not steal. Bernardov will steal, even Bernhardov can steal! I will steal!
May be so.
True, the similarity of this collision with the history of four years ago is embarrassing.
Then the director of the Gogol Center KS Serebrennikov was drawn to Jesus in the Seventh Studio case, where, according to the investigation, everything was very wrong with the accounting department. It is the same now.
There were even more appeals in defense, and they were composed exactly in the spirit of the cultural worker Umrikhin.
Another similarity: then Maslyaeva, the accountant of the Seventh Studio, who did not want to sit down, began to give confessions. Today the same testimony is given by Kryuchkova, executive director of the MSSES.
And both then and now the testimony of Maslyaeva (resp .: Kryuchkova) was either ignored altogether by the supporters of the director (rector), or viewed as having no value, since they simply dictated what the investigation needed.
The Zuev case is still far from over, the Serebrennikov case was completed with a condescending verdict, and the director admitted that he probably did not look too closely at the monetary documents he was signing and, as a result, signed something that did not need to be signed.
Serebrennikov refused to appeal.
Perhaps a similar picture took place now. S.E. Zuev is not a predator at all, but he did business very carelessly, which is why he fell under the punishing sword.
Although the very name of the structures in which he participated — «Fund for New Forms of Education Development», «Teacher of the Future» — as well as the extremely muddy figure of M. N. Rakova, the former Deputy Minister of Education and then Vice President of Sberbank responsible for educational the undertakings of German Oskarovich — could persuade a more reasonable person that all this smells like a scam and it is better to stay away from such persons and structures.
Approximately as GE Zheglov spoke about IS Gruzdev — “He just had to deal with his women in time and not throw pistols anywhere”.
This does not negate the opportunity to listen to the petition of the members of the Russian Academy of Sciences to choose a softer measure of restraint. Moreover, S.E. Zuev is old, he has a sick heart and taking into custody seems to be unnecessary cruelty.
The director Serebrennikov avoided preliminary detention.
And in general, in such cases, the pattern «The law is that the spider web, the bumblebee will fly by, and the fly will get stuck» acts too strongly.
When you look at different «territories of meanings» and «boiling points», it is difficult to believe that everything is purely there under Art. 159-4. Probably no better than the Fund for New Forms of Education Development, but the roof is painfully good.
One can also recall the remarkable artist and popular favorite (as well as the favorite of the authorities), the head of the Moscow Art Theater, OP Tabakov. There were such miracles with the accounting department that KS Serebrennikov never dreamed of. But universal love forced us to close our eyes to amazing deeds.
So popularity is a very important factor when investigating boring financial matters.
The Minister of Culture of Crimea A.V. Novoselskaya, if popular, was rather scandalous. Either she expressed herself according to her mother at a meeting with the head of Crimea S.V. Aksenov, then she attended the opening of the school-lyceum named after Makarenko, in a suit more decent for a priestess of love than for a minister, then called the Kerch griffins «eagles».
Therefore, when she was accused of abuses during the construction of the Crimean Center for Children’s Theatrical Art in Simferopol, and the price of the issue was approximately the same as with the «Fund for New Forms of Education Development» — 20 million rubles. with a penny, there were no cult workers who, in their proclamations, noted Novoselskaya’s high virtue and impeccable reputation. Completely excluding her involvement in any dubious negotiations.
Her fate once again underlines the importance of the imperative «Take care of honor from your youth.» Then it will be easier to defend against law enforcement agencies.
