Lipsits said that this happens with the textbooks of other authors, and wording in their examinations also raise questions. “For example, in the textbook there are no errors, comments no objections, but recommended to not be,” he provided as an example. “This is an attempt to remove from the Federal list of textbooks that make it difficult to publish something else. I understand that”,
