In this paper, the effect of deformation of a fullerite crystal on the dynamic properties of a rotating C60 molecule located in the center of a selected fragment is analyzed. The spherical potential of pair interaction is used to determine the dynamic characteristics of surrounding molecules. The angular oscillations and rotation of the central C60 molecule are described using the dynamic Euler equations. The effect of the direction of deformation of a fragment of a fullerite crystal on the precessional displacement of a rotating fullerene molecule is investigated depending on the direction and magnitude of the initial angular velocity.
