Graduates of leading universities of Russia, MSU and MIPT, physicist Ida Pavlichenko and molecular biologist Olga Dudchenko are among the 35 leading young innovators. The list is annually announced by the MIT Technology Review magazine, RIA Novosti reports.

The list of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology is considered one of the most respected in the scientific world, and scientists noted by MIT are widely known. The editorial board notes representatives of science who have managed to achieve significant discoveries or other successes in the scientific field, before reaching 35 years of age.

It is noted that Olga Dudchenko, who now works at the American Medical College of Baylor, got on the prestigious list for creating a technique for gluing short pieces of DNA. She also participates in scientific programs to save rare animals from extinction.

Ida Pavlichenko was called a young innovator for the creation of special tubes that do not allow the penetration of infections in children's ears. Russian woman is working on promotion of this invention, which has already attracted the attention of investors, together with her colleagues at Harvard.

In addition, the project participants will hold online discussions. For example, they will discuss how artists can participate in the design of the cities of the future for the BRICS countries. Anna Kurumchina, director of the Agency for Cultural and Science Diplomacy (Yekaterinburg) and the organizer of the exhibition, shared the details of the international project.
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.
