State Duma deputy, intellectual Anatoly Wasserman supported the idea of creating a center in Novouralsk (Sverdlovsk region) dedicated to the General Commissar of State Security of the USSR Lavrenty Beria. According to him, the Soviet leader was one of the world’s best leaders of major projects, which means he deserves a separate center.
“It was Beria who headed three special committees under the USSR Council of Ministers: on nuclear energy, on rocket science and on-board electronics. Their work in total gave what is now called the “Nuclear Missile Shield of the Motherland”. For this alone, he deserves the creation of a full-scale museum, and, above all, a scientific and technical one, ”Wasserman told NEWS.ru reporters.
Especially the intellectual noted the success in stopping the Great Terror, which was in the country at the end of 1938. “And the meat grinder was stopped only by a series of managerial maneuvers and the transfer of the NKVD to the jurisdiction of Beria. So he undoubtedly deserved a full-fledged museum, ”said the State Duma deputy and added that the proposal to create the Beria Center looks much more serious than the very existence of the Yeltsin Center.
Wasserman also stressed that he considers the EC a bucket of slops and clarified that he is not specifically talking about the personality of Boris Yeltsin, but about the activities of the center itself, which is led by insane people. URA.RU tried to contact Anatoly Wasserman, but he did not answer the correspondent’s call.
Earlier, the former adviser to the rector of the Ural Mining University, Vadim Averyanov, proposed the creation of the Beria Center in Novouralsk. State Duma deputy and member of “Own Game” Anatoly Wasserman said that the governor of the Sverdlovsk region, Yevgeny Kuyvashev, had to endure the presence of the Yeltsin Center in Yekaterinburg.
