And it's minuscule that was invented by Russian minds.
If we analyze the practical, rapid growth of Russian inventions that have made a breakthrough in the world of scientific and technological progress, we can see that Russia, being at the peak of growth and development of science and technology, "falls" in the revolution of 17 years. And almost up to the 30s, "squeezing" or "crushing" all the brilliant minds of the country, in Russia, invented nothing. After the 30s, except for inventions aimed at the destruction of man by man, invented the great potential is much smaller than in the XVIII and early XIX centuries. And to this day in Russia and could not learn to really appreciate and evaluate the geniuses born Russian land. Though, as history shows, the Russian genius no invention for the sake of personal enrichment or made. Russian inventors as the Russian doctors - treat patients, not those who have money.
