The icebreaker, backpack parachute, tramcar, and foam fire extinguisher—all of these things have long belonged to the list of human achievements. Most people don’t know that they owe their existence to Russian inventors. At the turn of the twentieth century, Russia had one of the strongest schools of inventors in the world, although in many ways it developed in spite of circumstances.

Four years have passed since then, and this year the Russian program celebrated its first graduating class.

And this is too bad, since Russo-Polish relations are very instructive.
