Russian scientists should collaborate with everyone who wants to work with Russia, Vladimir Putin claimed during his working meeting with the President of Russian Academy of Sciences Alexander Sergeev. Russian President emphasized that joint work should be done on an equal footing, so that Russia didn’t lose in such collaboration, the official website of the President of Russia reports. 

“We must strive for not being used only as a source of skills and knowledge. If we share something with our partners, we have to receive equally important information back,” Vladimir Putin said.

This was the President’s reaction on a statement that the President of Russian Academy of Sciences made about the intensification of “scientific diplomacy” involving Russian scientists. 

“We are establishing the offices of the Russian Academy of Sciences abroad now... We have serious plans for to create inter-academic research exchange centres,” Alexander Sergeev told. He said that some of the joint programs, that are important for Russian science, have been practically put on hold. Alexander Sergeev also noted that the Academy is striving to create several research centres in the country to be able to host the international working groups for brainstorming.

Since the beginning of the unrest in Kazakhstan, some media and Telegram channels have speculated about the threat to Russians living in the Republic. Allegedly, the introduction of CSTO forces would put them in danger due to the rise of Kazakh nationalism. Izvestia talked to Russians living in the country to find out how the January events had affected their relations with Kazakhs. Interviewees claimed that the introduction of CSTO peacekeepers had no effect on interethnic dialogue because the Russians living in the Republic were not associated with Russia - they were locals. However, according to Izvestia's interlocutors, there is still intolerance at the mundane level.
