How US made us of Nuclear bombs for Civilian purposes, and how Drones have saved lives
Then again, back to Russia, a lot of their Inventions do have Civilian purposes, though in the propaganda part, they failed repeatedly
Take for example the number of AN 124s flying Civilian cargo, and important civilian cargo.
And the Mils, which are doing excellent service where others dare not fly, and costing a fraction of their western equivalent, provide much needed air lift for countries who can't afford Western equipment. Even the UN has been leasing Russian Gear a lot, for their dependability and ruggedness.
And on the other end, how the Kalashnikov has saved lives as the inventor believes .. (the last one was really tongue in cheek... )
To Quote Kalashnikov: "I created a weapon to defend the borders of my motherland. It's not my fault that it's being used where it shouldn't be. The politicians are more to blame for this."
