On 19 October, 2007, the "TurkRus.com" web site discussed a report about Adnan Oktar from Komsomolskaya Pravda, Russia’s top-selling daily. Under the caption “Adnan Hodja’s Criticism of Darwin in the Russian Press: ‘Science Searches for God’,” the report said:
“In a full two-page report on the debate raging around Darwin’s theory, Komsomolskaya Pravda, one of Russia’s highest-circulation dailies, particularly concentrated on Adnan Oktar. The article in question said ‘The evidence collected over 20 years with the aim of refuting Darwin’s theory by Adnan Oktar, a member of the Science Research Foundation, has not just been published in book form in 13 languages and in 54 countries, but is now on the Russian internet,’ and went on to state:

… The article stated that the debate revolved around the following questions:
