Quote by the head of the laboratory:

Your country has traditionally had very strong science, and I have always been in awe of the Russian mathematics: after Perestroika a lot of people have left for the West or started interacting with colleagues from there and scientific work that had been done in isolation suddenly became widely known and changed a lot of things.
