1. General Relativity has spacetime distortion due to the presence of massive bodies. Therefore it cannot be euclidean, except if the entire universe were a vacuum, which is not of interest.

2. This quote is puzzling "On the contrary, we arrived at the result that according to this latter theory the velocity of light must always depend on the coordinates when a gravitational field is present. " because there is no gravitational field in General Relativity. There are massive objects and geometric distortion, and nothing else.

In GR light parallel to a set of coordinates, follows the coordinates at the constant speed of light.

Is this the rendition of a theory that claims that GR is incorrect?
