This is not about the Russian issue in a sense that there is some issue with Russians or Russia (even though there might be one). This is a Russian issue in a sense that all its articles are written in Russian. The first is recollections about Altshuller. The second is one of my childhood stories written in the 1960s.
As always, the articles/stories teach a method (not always explicitly expressed though) and, thus, are relevant to TRIZ. I hope that the readers will enjoy them.
