On the one hand, etc. Lysenko played a critical role in the fate of Acad. Vavilov. With Vavilov, genetics would have developed faster and more successfully. She developed without Vavilov, and all the same Lysenko, oddly enough. After Vavilov was dismissed from all posts and after his death, Prezent (Lysenko's protege) was put as extreme, and genetics was returned back to science. But Vavilov, of course, could have done a lot, if not for TD.
On the other hand, Lysenko was a very good practitioner, this cannot be taken away from him. And he received orders and awards for ensuring the supply of food to the Red Army during the Second World War. Would Vavilov, who was a genius, but nevertheless, above all, an academic scientist, cope in his place? Not sure.
Only for the fate of Academician Vavilov and his associates, in addition to the actual destruction of genetics in the USSR, Lysenko should be fried in hell in a separate, especially hot frying pan along with the most terrible executioners of history.
Comrade Lysenko (who is not our friend at all) is a man of tragic fate. Once he climbed onto the tree for dill, did not calculate his strength, and collapsed. He would have repeated his attempts more than once, but he was filled with watermelons from the same tree. Death.
