MOSCOW, December 30. /TASS/. Russia is not faced with the threat of a shortage of experienced technological and research staffs, the Russian President’s aide Andrey Fursenko said on Wednesday.
"We have steady statistics today and it shows the arriving qualified specialists outnumber those who are leaving Russia," he told Rossiya’24 news channel. "All the talk about a horrifying outflow of specialists from here is but phantom pains coming from the end of the 1990’s."
"It’s true that there is a definite mobility among scientists but no real brain drain today," Fursenko said.
The sanctions imposed on Russia by the EU and the US in the wake of the Ukrainian tumult have affected researchers in a very small measure and there is a very intense interest on both sides towards maintaining and promoting collaboration in the scientific and educational sphere.
"We should give a really serious thought to creating the most lucrative conditions for work here in Russia, not only to high salaries," Fursenko said. "The best possible equipment and the most tantalizing research objectives are also highly important.".
