This article deals with the main problems currently occurring in Russian science. Meanwhile, the main focus is on the field of natural sciences, in particular, biology. This is due to the fact that the development of this scientific field has been given a special place in the government regulations, over the past two years. The article discusses the goals of the Science National Project and the Program for the Development of Genetic Technologies. Arguments are given in favor of the incorrectness of the criteria for evaluating of effectiveness both the researchers and some of the challenges which are presented in these documents. It is pointed out why Russian science would never be able to take a leading position in the world, why the really updating the staff and the true development of the Russian science would be impossible, under the current conditions. The latter, in general, is due to the inability to conduct the multicast researches. The paper provides the recommendations for solving a number of issues raised.
science management, bibliometric indicators, scientist efficiency, scientist motivation, financing of Russian science
