Plagiarism allegations haunt Russian lawmaker

Feb 7 2013, 12:50pm CST | by

Moscow, Feb 7 (IANS/RIA Novosti) In the latest plagiarism scandal, yet another State Duma deputy, Rishat Abubakirov, is facing allegations of copying chunks of his dissertation from another source.

Moscow, Feb 7 (IANS/RIA Novosti) In the latest plagiarism scandal, yet another State Duma deputy, Rishat Abubakirov, is facing allegations of copying chunks of his dissertation from another source.

The Dozhd TV channel quoted bloggers as claiming that Abubakirov plagiarised about 45 percent of his 2009 economics doctorate dissertation from the work of Stanislav Sirota.

Both men had defended their theses at Kazan State University, but Sirota defended his dissertation three years before Abubakirov.

The ruling United Russia party member's work is said to mirror not only the content, but also the punctuation marks and even the mistakes in Sirota's text.

Bloggers have urged the Higher Certification Committee -- known as VAK -- to strip Abubakirov of his doctorate degree, and also blamed the VAK for its poor performance in allowing such things to happen.

There has been no comment from Abubakirov, whose aides, according to Dozhd, said he is "too busy".

This latest controversy comes on the heels of plagiarism allegations made against other Duma members Vladimir Burmatov, Nikolai Bulayev and Tatyana Alekseyeva, and even Culture Minister Vladimir Medinsky, all of them also United Russia members.

Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev has called for a robust effort to fight plagiarism, saying the number of fake dissertations was "over the top".

He stressed that plagiarism should be "nipped in the bud", starting with first-year college students, and that entirely new "quality standards" for research should be set.

In November, a group of alumni from a specialised research centre at Moscow State University alleged that the centre's director, Andrei Andriyanov, had plagiarised parts of his dissertation.

A special commission was subsequently formed by the science and education ministry that established that 25 dissertations defended at the Moscow State Pedagogical University had been plagiarised.

Not a principled principal

Sep 16 2014 4:22pm CDT | Source: WND

Mr. Unruh: Having just read your article on the almost incomprehensible decision by Principal Fulmer to remove U.S. flags from the students’ vehicles, I had to quickly reread to see if this took place in Syria or Russia. Hopefully not here only 13 years later from the worst terrorist act committed on U.S. soil as thousands of families continue to grieve over their loss. I shudder to think what kind of message this Fulmer is communicating to these brave stu ...

When Putin falls into obscurity

Sep 14 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: WND

Recently Vladimir Putin announced a defense program to upgrade the Russian Federation’s defense systems, a 10-year program. Promptly after that, three missiles were launched from a Russian Federation submarine. This was called a test. This was done to show that Russian Federation submarines can fire missiles. That’s nothing new! Technologically speaking, the Russian Federation cannot really menace anyone at this time. The Russian Federation lags behind the United States of America and the Peop ...
