In what can only be attributed to a clerical error in the Russian Ministry of Science and Education, the speaker was mistakenly identified as a 'leading foreign scientist' in 2013 and named the director of a silicon photomultiplier laboratory at the Moscow Engineering and  Physics Institute, under  the auspices of the Russian "megagrant" program. Science results from that collaboration, as well as impressions of the sociology and politics of Russian science will be presented.
