Gennadiy N. Lepeshkin: Here's the thing: I was doing highly specialized science and the aspect of politics in question had little to do with us.
We were scientific researchers, implementing assignments. It was our senior managers who developed plans and strategies, and we were not a part of that.
Interviewer: So could you say that you never discussed those matters?
Lepeshkin: Yeah, well, we did have conversations among ourselves, but our goals and assignments were of a different nature.
