An Israeli citizen Boris grits, detained in Moscow for attempt at the Deputy chief editor of radio station «Echo of Moscow» Tatiana Felgengauer, about ten years ago he defended his doctoral dissertation at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. The journalist of the website NEWSru.co.il spoke with one of the professors who worked with him.
Our interlocutor noted that ten years ago it was clear that the graduate student is not completely healthy and has mental problems. He remembered how Boris grits, developed the theme «Physics of droplets in turbulence», sent to a seminar devoted to the issues of turbulence, one of the colleges of France.
A few days after the start of the workshop supervisor grits received from the graduate student e-mail read: «I feel much better Now. Two of my soul was found. Don’t worry. Now all will be well.»
At the same time a letter came to the University from the organizers of the event, in which they reported that the graduate student did not appear on the workshops, and warned that can require from the Hebrew University to return the money that was paid for the participation of Israeli.
Our source confirmed that Boris grits was born in Georgia, but didn’t like to talk about this period of his life. We only know that he and his mother moved to Moscow.
The question of why he has not formed a scientific career, made me think of our interlocutor. He remembered that Boris was trying to find a job in Israel, USA, Moscow and St. Petersburg, and, according to him, some time worked in the specialty. But, as suggested by our interviewee, employers soon realized that the young scientist «unhealthy», and preferred not to deal with it.
On the question of how grits could defend the thesis, our interlocutor said, «you Can be a physicist and nuts. Not a hindrance».
The source asked not to specify his name, adding that he agreed to this interview in the hope that it will be possible to convey to the Russian law enforcement bodies: we are talking about a sick person.
