Talent of the Russian genius is boundless. Greatest Russian inventors and scientists changed the world, contributing to the human civilization. How much mother Russia has given to the world is impossible to count. Russian scientists invented all you have and use now – first plane, television, radio, etc. I do not touch the contributions to the arts, social sciences, and this contribution is not small. And above all, there is a contribution in the form of events and objects, which aren’t touched here. Such as the “Kalashnikov”, “First Astronaut”, “The first winged” and many others. Of course, it is impossible to enumerate all. But even such a cursory glance, proves the fact Russia has much to be proud of. It’s a pity that many of the “scientists” of the west appropriated the greatest inventions of Russian scientists, without a twinge of conscience. But the truth always prevail and genetics of Russians can’t be patented.
