Luoksa blog continues the story of consequences for Russian physical chemist Valentin Kochnev for his scientific discoveries.
The building of the Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Moscow, Leninskii Prospekt, 31) is an example of Soviet architecture. In this building, the disgusting Soviet traditions of harassing the unwanted are still alive. Image: Valentin Kochnev
Just after Valentin Kochnev was illegally denied for access to his temporary housing, the N.S. Kurnakov Institute of General and Inorganic Chemistry of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IGIC RAS) began to prepare V. Kochnev’s dismissal. Former Valentin’s supervisor, head of the lab, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences, N.T. Kuznetsov began to write reports on the absence of Valentine in the workplace.
On May 24, 2017, Director of the IGIC RAS, Corresponding Member of the Russian Academy of Sciences V.K. Ivanov issued an order number 26-k by which allegedly fired Valentin Kochnev for «absenteeism».

Why «allegebly»? Because the order No. 26-k has not terminated the labor contract between the IGIC RAS and V. Kochnev. The term of the employment contract expires in the middle of 2020. By the law, only the termination of an employment contract is the dismissal of an employee.
This is the body of the order:
The characteristic: the order has no name at all and does not correspond to the legally approved T-8 form.
In other words the order No. 26-k is fictitious and Valentin Kochnev was not fired actually.
IGIC RAS simply stopped to pay Valentin Kochnev’ salary.
But this does not mean that Valentin Kochnev is not charged the salary that someone puts in his pocket.
In addition, in a few months Valentin Kochnev had to receive a housing certificate for the state federal program, which is called now “Providing housing for certain categories of citizens”.
But again, it is not the fact that no one stole the housing certificate.
The fact is that the actions of the IGIC RAS administration who did not terminated the employment contract with Valentin Kochnev, but also did not paid his salary, are criminal.
A small “feature to the portrait” of the IGIC RAS administration. In the violation of a lot of the Russian laws, including the law on the protection of the personal data, the director of the institute has organized the collection of signatures («visas») of his deputies, other employees of the administration and clerks about their agreement with the dismissal of Valentin Kochnev and presentation of the order to the institute employees.
These actions of the IGIC RAS Director are not only illegal themselves. The actions of him are a real persecution and a baiting that dishonors Russia. It seems such the actions in the institutes of the Russian Academy of Sciences have not been observed since the time of the persecution of Academician Andrei Sakharov.
This is the «visas» on the order No. 26-k:
This is pure Soviet tradition of the harassment: illegal actions of the Director are covered up by «the will of the team».
The Luoksa blog will tell about the consequences of the illegal actions of the IGIC RAS in the following publications.
