completeness of arithmetic??

Recently Esenin-Volpin wrote a paper The Completeness of Classical Arithmetic.

The chances that this is correct are not very high, obviously. The discussion of Goedel incompleteness results is on page 43 (Volpin thinks something is wrong with them, and not with his proof). The core of the Volpin's proof is on pages 39-43, if anyone who likes syntactic logical manipulations wants to look at it.
