Please check up whether I am being correctly informed in private that Academician Lazarev, who has long been working on the Kursk Anomaly, is discouraged by the reported refusal of any financial support.
Find out the amount he expected to receive and what he has been given.
 The funds required for the purchase of equipment abroad to explore the Kursk Magnetic Anomaly were assigned. Academician P. P. Lazarev later reported that the financial side of the undertaking was in order.
