On political issues in medical mycology

Until recently, certain former members of ECMM council abstained from political declarations and references, with most public activity restricted to talks, paperwork and exploitation of funds. Just selling 'FECMM' titles for self-promotion of guillible doctors, extorting money from mycology labs for branding them excellent and organizing conferences to exchange 'grants' and 'gala dinners' inside unelected circle of nouveau-eurocomissars of mycology appears not enough to simulate mycological research in Western Europe. That may expain their pivot to discussing and rating events that do neither depend nor even apply to them - literally, what is happening in Eastern Europe. After a paper on "The Current State of Clinical Mycology in Eastern and South-Eastern Europe" where 15 authors from USA to India and only 4 of them from 3 states of Eastern Europe proclaim medical mycology there 'Still a long way to go' they turned their attention on purely political issues in Russia, citing highly politicized social networks. Let us just kindly inform those self-proclaimed € 300 fellows in mycology that clinicians and researchers from Elbe to Urals do no need their supervision and develop strongly all these years by their own effort.
