Professor A. Z. Yegorin, a prominent Russian orientalist, began his book "Muammar Gaddafi" (Moscow, IV RAS, 2009, 464 p.) with a survey conducted by his colleague, pravdist journalist Igor Belyaev. He tried to find out what our compatriots know about the leader of the Libyan revolution, Muammar Gaddafi.
