Gennadiy N. Lepeshkin: There were individual cases of researcher... well, let's say, misconduct... and we had... some disagreements on that issue. There were times when violations of discipline had to be punished. Such cases did occur.
Interviewer: And were there cases of drunkenness?
Lepeshkin: There were. Once I fired someone for just that, for drunken behavior.
(Sonia) There were similar problems of scientists/technicians drinking on the job in the US bioweapons program. It will be interesting to ask this question to the US guys too.
