Greatest Russians of All Time
He made Russia great! The greatest ruler in the world! He brought up Russia from medieval ages and smashed the greatest European army of that time - Sweden army headed by Carl XII
He was the only catalyst who brought Russia, then a medieval state, to the forefront of the western powers of the day, due to his unswerving program of westernization inspired by his vision and daring.
The work this single man has done is incredible!
His last name explains his perfection.
He is the best
I support Vladimir Putin, under whose watch the oligarchs are put in check (if not outright arrested), Russian army regains ability to project power on a global scale, quality of life in Russia is on the rise, new military technologies being developed, all national debt is paid-off (Russia's debt level is now 3-5 %), under Putin, Russian economy is not collapsing DESPITE coordinated economic sanctions, new developments in economy and space technologies, Russian population has started growing.
He is a true statesman... unlike many politicians in the Western countries! Despite the unprecedented pressure from the West he stays proud and defiant and so does his nation aka Russia!
At least, he tries if he don't turned russia to a "greatest country of all time". He made this country great again, tries to solve conflicts in Syria, improwed Russian economy...
Definitely deserves to be in top 10! He transformed Russia form a degrading country on the brink of extinction to a world superpower again.
Gorbachev tried to save an economically crippled USSR with his reforms. It wasn't his fault that Yeltsin stabbed him in the back and screwed over the people of the Soviet Union... come on people!
He's a jerk, destroyed great country!
he made brilliant music to make as a ballet show like the nutcracker and swan lake. greatest russian ever!
First man in space. Enough said.
First human in space...
Tolstoy & Tchaïkovsky are the ultimate best
Yes, I know, it might sound weird, but I always imagine the Soviet until on when stressed, imagining their hard times, I'm weird, I know, I'm weird, just don't judge me
Papa lenin, founder of the Soviet Union
Creted the best country in history
He made the Soviet Union and ended the messed up reign of Tzar, meaning that he overthrew the descendents of other people such as Catherine the great
Brought coherence to chemistry research and its educational delivery. He ordered the foundational document of biological research, materials science and applications, and so many innovations past, present, and yet to come. Say that about a politician! He has had greater lasting global impact than communism and all that.
He's a jerk, that destroyed the whole country.
No. He killed millions of innocents. Also he wasn't even Russian, he was Georgian.
He was born in Georgia, in the city of Gori, not Russia.
the idiot who put this on the list must be psycho
He's korean actually, he just sung on russian.
He is Serbian not Russian
