According to Smirnov, the dissertation 24% consists of plagiarism – Skarlet “borrowed” part of the doctoral work of the Russian scientist Silkina.

The analysis of the work lasted more than half a year. In it, experts found six sources that contained text matches.
“The materials contained in the state repository were separated into several files. It took a long time to recognize that this is a single, coherent document. We tried to do it in such a way that it could not be challenged in court.” – Andriy Butenko, chairman of NAZYAVO, explained at the time in the commentary “UP. Life”.
We will remind you that the NAMELY committee found plagiarism in four works by Serhii Shkarlet.
