There are many great scientists in my country. The names that come into my mind are Zhores Alferov, Nikolay Basov, Vladimir Bechterev, Mikhail Kalashnikov, Yevgeny Kaspersky, Yuri Lomonosov and many others. But the person who impressed me most is Pavel Durov. He is an entrepreneur who is best known for being the founder of the social networking site VK, and later the Telegram Messenger. He is young enough and was born in 1884. At school he was very skillful and his classmates called him erudite. He took part in different Maths and computer programming contests and Olympiads and won them. After university graduation he started site VK together with his brother. The first user joined the site in 2006 and two years later there were more than 20 mln users in VK. Later he sold it and founded Telegram. Now Pavel doesn’t live in Russia, he got a citizenship of a small country The Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis, but he doesn’t live there. The passport of this country allows him to travel around the world. Pavel Durov is in the list of the richest people of Russia.
