Nobel Prize in Physics Goes to Russians

This year Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov won the highest award in the scientific world the Nobel Prize. Researchers, currently affiliated with University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom were awarded for "for groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene".
      Last time, when a Russian was awarded the Nobel Prize, was 2007 it was an economics nomination for for having laid the foundations of mechanism design theory, and Leonid Hurwicz, who shared the prize with two more researchers, was only born in Moscow, but made his career in the United States, so we cannot say he was pure Russian.
      2003 was notable for the Nobel Prize in Physics, when Alexei Abrikosov and Vitaly Ginzburg got the award for for pioneering contributions to the theory of superconductors and superfluids.
      Until the government stops daydreaming about innovation parks like Skolkovo and pays attention to the real problems of the Russian science, no more Nobel Prize laureates will appear in our country.
      This years Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine went to Robert Edwards of Britain for for the development of in vitro fertilization.
