Frolov Russian Fraud RE: Chernetskii
- Frolov, what you write below is nonsense. Edward Kruglyakov is
not only Chairman of the Commission Against Falsification in
Scientific Researches; he is also one of the best experts
in Russia on plasma physics and is recognized worldwide as such.
See "plasma" and "kruglyakov" in Google. And you are just
an undereducated fraud. Kruglyakov has long explained how
the Chernetsky device really worked. For instance, see
Kruglyakov's article of 1998, in Russian:
And before Kruglyakov, many others (Netushil, Zaev, etc)
conclusively demonstrated that the Chernetsky device was a dud.
The Zaev letter wherein he calls Chernetsky a fraud like Blondlot
has been published in many journals. Strange that you claim to
be a "free-energy expert" but you do not know of these facts.
Or maybe you do know, but are just trying to deceive people?

- The fact remains the fact, and nothing can change it:
Frolov knew that Roschin and Godin are NOT members of Russian Academy
but still he presented them as members... that is deliberate fraud.
He also presented that man from Sibiria, fraud also, who said
he collected bug's wings, and made a flying device with it,
I don't remember his name... what a fraud, what a fraud, what a shame!
