It is shown that the criterion for the suppression of turbulent fluctuations in tokamaks is not simply the shear of the radial electrical field. The shear of the parallel flow must be taken into account. One of the most efficient ways to influence turbulence fluctuations through the shear of the angular frequency is to fix the parallel flow and change the poloidal EXB rotation.
