Job Offer For Akayev

by Nathan Hamm on 3/28/2005

The Russian Academy of Sciences wants to bring him on as head of the Electric Physics Institute.

“He is too polite and kind for politics, but a scientist of his kind will always find himself a place in the modern world,” Mesyats said. “Akayev is a far-sighted scientist, who has a philosophical idea of science, profound knowledge and a wide range of interests.”

“There was a large scientific conference in Kyrgyzstan recently, and Akayev put forward plenty of proposals about the promotion of science,” Mesyats said.

“Askar Akayev is a representative of a Central Asian country but he belongs to the European culture, and it has been a pleasure for the Russian Academy of Sciences to cooperate with him,” he said.
