The theory of relativity is composed of two parts - the Special Relativity Theory (SRT) and based on it, the relativistic theory of gravity or General Relativity (GRT). As generally accepted, SRT is confirmed by all known experiments and observations. Unlike SRT, in which all processes are described by very simple mathematical expressions, GRT uses a very complex mathematical apparatus, but all experimental "confirmation" of SRT have a simple classical explanation. Since its inception to the present time, the theory of relativity has undergone sharp criticism. Where the authors of most critical papers first admit that STR is confirmed by all experiments and therefore correct, then they begin to criticize the statements and conclusions of GRT (L. Brillouin, A. A. Logunov etc). In our opinion, if the validity of special relativity is recognized, it does not make any sense to criticize general relativity because it is a logical extension of the former.
