    "..... Show your suitability since childhood,
    Be a step or a wall - a support in the right place.
    We’ll all leave this life, alone like smoke,
    leaving a vision in mind, others - not hoping for luck,
    From dancing their dance is full, and they will drink their cup to the bottom.
    The main thing is not to live long, but not to survive the children.
    And in memory of children to preserve their suitability. "

    A generation is leaving ... Unfortunately, this is a law of nature ... A new one is coming. Will it be the same, regardless of time, forgetting about itself, work hard? Not for rewards, not for fame - but because it is necessary!

      Young people see how the USSR Scientific and Technical Fund is being stolen and sold before their eyes. In this sense, the new Russia is also not insured ... "Work hard" for what? So that the Serdyukovs and Vasilievs feel good? Where are the films about such as Baklanov, Kalashnikov, Grabin, ...? Bankers, lawyers, actors - these are the most popular characters among young people ...

    Thank you, Vasily Ivanovich for your work.
    Something over the past couple of months, "pestilence" has gone among the "elders" of our military-industrial complex. It is clear that this cannot be avoided, but somehow it hurts a lot of them to leave.
