HE DIDN'T TURN PINK... TO THE 85TH ANNIVERSARY OF ACADEMICIAN E. M. PRIMAKOV
ALEXEY VASILIEV, Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Often, a person who has done a lot in his life and has risen to great heights, by old age becomes a monument to himself. He no longer speaks, but utters, does not walk, but carries himself, does not come anywhere, but appears, perceives someone else's opinion or someone else's logic with a grin, and more often simply dismisses it.
