Famous People From Russia

When we talk of famous Russian men, it is but impossible not to think of Yuri Gagarin, the first human being who journeyed into outer space. Russians have always been known for their technological innovations, especially in the field of space research. But space research is not the only area where Russian men have left their mark even though they have always been pioneers in this field. Russian men since time immemorial have contributed a lot to the world in the areas of literature, science, arts, and what not!
