1 - This is bullshit - if it is Komsomolskaya Pravda reporting. There is no truth (Pravda) in those "Pravda" words. It was a prominent Komsomol newspaper in Soviet times (I remember it when I was a Pioneer :p), but now it has shitted to yellow.

2 - Alexander Kharchevskiy will soon be disqualified as a pilot, yes. But not fo moral or professional issues, but age and transfer to a new position (Gagarin/Zhukovskiy-named AF Academy Chief).

During 1976-1991 years - he served as a test pilot at the Mikoyan Experimental Design Bureau (MiG aircraft). During this time he tested over 50 types of aircraft. The first in the Soviet Union to make a nonstop flight crossing the North Pole and with two in-flight refueling, the first in the Soviet Union who took off of the aircraft-carrier "Tbilisi" on a MiG 29K.
