I don't understand russian, but it seems to me he wanted
to do something on files, not the directories:

for f in $(find $dir -type f); do echo $f; done

Or, if you want it to work too when there are *many* files
(above the bash comand line limit), then you probably have
to use:

find $dir -type f | xargs echo


find $dir -type f | xargs -n 1 echo

(try to see the difference).
