Five Russian scientists have entered the international ranking of young chemists, TASS reports. It was composed with the participation of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) and the International Younger Chemists Network (IYCN).

The rating, presented in the form of the Periodic Table of the Periodic Table, includes one hundred and eighteen people.

The “periodic table” of young chemists reflects the variety of paths in science that scientists are moving towards in the next century, their creative abilities and devotion to their beloved work.

The highest place among the representatives of the scientific world of our country was taken by Alexander Mazhuga. The rector of University of Chemical Technology of Russia named after Mendeleev, who is considered one of the youngest leaders of Russian universities, is located at the forty-fourth position. Mazhuga is engaged in bioorganic and medical chemistry, is interested in the development of modern approaches to the synthesis and conducts research on biologically active substances.

Andrei Vorotyntsev who is engaged in the development of highly efficient catalytic systems at the Nizhny Novgorod Technical University, took the 90th place. Anna Romanchuk from Moscow State University with specialty in radiochemistry was at 101st place.

Leonid Skripnikov from the Petersburg Institute of Nuclear Physics named after Konstantinov took 114th line. The PIK reactor is being built on the basis of the institute - one of the mega-projects of the Science national project. He is followed by Galina Kniazheva from Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, who conducts research in the laboratory of nuclear reactions.

Russkiy Mir reported that the UN General Assembly declared 2019 the International Year of the Periodic Table of Mendeleev. In honor of the famous scientist various events are dedicated to the half-century anniversary of the Mendeleev Periodic Table in Russia. The beginning of the year of Mendeleev was timed to the Day of Science, which is celebrated in our country on February 8, the birthday of the scientist.

Meet BRICS Art is an international project that brings together artists from Russia, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa. Their virtual exhibition was opened in January. 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.
