Like other pro-Russian and Russian Orthodox extremists, Dvorkin discredited the Maidan movement, saying that the Acting President, Alexander Tourtchynov was a Baptist – which is true -, his Prime Minister Arseni Yatseniuk is a Scientologist his sister chairs a major scientologist organization in the USA – both accusations spread by Interfax-Religion, a Russian press agency, and checked as false by Human Rights Without Frontiers (**).
Many were surprised by the recent lecture given by the sect expert A.L. Dvorkin on the history of Islam at the Northern Arctic Federal University that offended Russian Moslems by its contents and received negative responses from leading Islamic figures. It surprised, first of all with the fact that Dvorkin, apparently, practically did not concern Islam earlier in his antisectarian speeches and now suddenly unexpectedly “debuted” in this field.
The lecture about history of Islam which was given by leader of anti-sect movement in Russia Alexander Dvorkin is still fresh in memory. The lecture took place on 5 February 2013 in the Northern Arctic Federal University (Arkhangelsk city, Russia) under the title “Origins of Islam. Not-told stories” (length is 1h 25min).
