A renormalization group (RG) approach that gives a possibility to describe the flattening of the electron spectrum and does not suppose the presence of strong antiferromagnetic fluctuations was developed. As a result of the peculiar structure of the spectrum, the pinning of the Fermi level to Van Hove singularities in 2D systems occurred, the chemical potential being practically constant in a range of dopings near VH filling. In the pinning region, the electron density of states was determined by the quasiparticle damping and the system demonstrated essentially non-Fermi-liquid behavior.
