“Wikipedia alone is impossible to use”: Putin wants to give another open lesson

Russian President Vladimir Putin.


The head of Knowledge, Maxim Dreval, told Vladimir Putin how the revival of the scientific community is going.

– Are you satisfied with the results of your work? the president asked.

“Our wildest expectations have been exceeded,” Dreval replied without undue modesty.

“Knowledge” is now actively filming educational lectures (600 hours of content have been prepared over the past year). They were seen by 40 million people. Society is experimenting with video formats; there are, for example, lecture tours. Dmitry Rogozin from Vostochny spoke about our projects in space; Valery Gergiev from the Mariinsky Theater spoke about music; YaNAO Governor Dmitry Artyukhov described the Arctic from an icebreaker in the Kara Sea.

Dreval said that “Knowledge” rewards its best speakers. But for now, there is enough bonus money for 50-100 people.

– Now we are also looking for (additional funding – Ed.), if you support, we will actively search, we will find such an opportunity, – the official asked in some awkward way.

“Of course, there is a lot of demand for information that is factual, important, in-depth, and even beautifully and talentedly presented, because it is impossible to use Wikipedia alone,” the president agreed.

In the end, Putin was offered to give another open lesson for schoolchildren in mid-May. An educational marathon will be held on the theme of Russia’s role in the world.

– Thank you very much for the invitation. I will definitely look at the schedule, – sincerely, and not just out of courtesy, the president replied.

The Russian leader gave an open lecture for the last time in Vladivostok on September 1 last year. Also, by the way, in the Knowledge marathon. He talked to the children about history: the schoolboy later trapped the politician in a reservation when Putin called the Northern War with Sweden the Seven Years.
