The Luzin affair

I was not aware that Luzin was persecuted by Stalin and some of his detractors were big names like Kolmogorov and Sobolev.

"Aleksandrov, Kolmogorov and some other students of Luzin accused him of plagiarism and various forms of misconduct. Sergei Sobolev and Otto Schmidt incriminated him with charges of disloyalty to Soviet power. "
