Great inventions that were stolen from Russians 

These inventions have forever changed the life of people, but to this day many people do not even know that their creators were Russians.
Bicycle
At the very beginning of the 19th century, serf Efim Artamonov from Nizhny Tagil designed a metal frame and attached wheels to it. At first, it was only possible to move on this device by pushing off the ground. But soon the inventor built the pedals and attached them to the structure. That is how the first bike appeared in the world. But no one at that time took care of obtaining a patent, and German baron Carl Drays, who announced that it was he who first invented the bicycle, immediately took advantage of this.
Anesthesia
If you study the history deeply enough, you can find out that the first anesthesia was used by physicians in ancient Egypt. True, it was so insignificant that it only barely alleviated the suffering. A good anesthesia was invented by the surgeon Nikolai Pirogov , who began using it in the middle of the 19th century. The doctor’s innovative decision saved the lives of thousands of people who had escaped postoperative pain shock with the help of anesthesia. Of course, the idea of ​​Pirogov immediately picked up by foreign doctors, and now the world hardly remembers who first began to apply the most important invention in medicine.
Radio
In Russia, almost everyone knows that the inventor of the radio was a scientist Alexander Popov , who in 1895 conducted the first broadcast session. However, in the West, few people know about this. Alas, Popov was a very non-pragmatic man. Devoting all his free time to science, the scientist completely forgot about obtaining a patent for his invention. And two years later, the Italian Guglielmo Marconi appropriated the invention of wireless communication to himself.
