The official did it, answering the question of Vladimir Zhirinovsky: “Lysenko and Vavilov, the final point of the set? Still Vavilov – a famous scientist in agriculture? Lysenko or something was right?”
“We certainly understand that one, and the other person – they of course legendary, the great scientists who have made great contributions to science, including in the agricultural. We still use these studies, scientific discoveries. So we bow our heads … I would not like someone to allocate.

The infamous Trofim Lysenko (1898 — 1976) rejected Mendelian genetics and chromosomal theory of heredity. His unscientific methods (“vernalization”, summer planting of potatoes, Gazovye planting) in Stalin’s time, have seriously hampered the development of Soviet agricultural science. Moreover, Lysenko and his supporters organized this persecution of the adherents of classical genetics, effectively destroying them, and science itself. But Lysenko was a knight of the eight orders of Lenin, three Stalin prizes.
