She’s a far rightwing anti-Democracy activist that likely started her industrial espionage site with the aid of the GRU in it’s ongoing multipronged assault on the Western world that has at it’s root a goal of total destruction of the United States, NATO and the capital “L” Liberal values that dragged the world out of the Dark Ages starting at the dawn of the Renaissance. The Soviets were and modern Russia is governed by the same people with the same ultra-expansionist motivations. Every time they prop up someone like Snowden or an organization like Wikileaks it is to attack America and degrade it’s ability to govern.
You guys that don’t spend any time around the people who still remember living in the Soviet Union like my soon to be ex-wife’s family really do not understand just how much is done to stymie progress and fan the flames of destruction. This woman is NOT a friend of science or academic advancement. She’s just hiding one splinter of GRU’s espionage program behind the thin veneer of free speech. She has no interest whatsoever in the free sharing of scientific information, any more than Al Qaeda is interested in freedom of religion.
If you think I’m just some paranoid cold war fossil, please, by all means, buy your ticket to St Petersburg today and spend as much time talking to the locals about the the United States. Their version of Fox News punditry is a pure cocaine of anti-American hate so convoluted it puts the fabled Gordian Knot to shame.
