On Wednesday, March 3, a new exposing article appeared in the LiveJournal of oppositionist Alexei Navalny, which tells in detail that Pavel Astakhov, a children's uniform, doctor of law, stole his dissertation, to say the least.
In his today's publication, Alexey Navalny points out in points that the doctoral dissertation, which Astakhov defended in 2006, is not only almost completely plagiarized, but does not carry any practical value and scientific novelty. Borrowing was not found only in a small part of the “scientific work”, and then, as the blogger notes, “it has not yet been discovered.”
To prove that Astakhov's dissertation is not a worthy scientific work, Navalny gives a lot of illustrations.
In his publication, the blogger not only tells specific pieces of copy-paste, but also cites sources, from which, without any changes, references and quotation marks were taken pieces of text.
Astakhov’s doctoral dissertation was also assessed by some experts: “The coloring style varies considerably from Chapter to Chapter,” he wrote. “For example, Section II, Chapter II: worked with large strokes, copied with page-by-page blocks. Another thing is Section I, Chapter III: master copies from the original source only the first sentences of different paragraphs. ”
There are similar questions to the master’s thesis, which the children's overalls defended in 2002.
True, not everyone appreciated the new expose in the Navalny blog. User LJ Kostomarov commented: “Not having time to figure it out, he starts throwing mud from the rocket launcher, in vain accusing a worthy person of sins!”.
Meanwhile, after Navalny was in dual citizenship and in owning real estate abroad, a member of the Federation Council had to leave a warm place.
