Well, in the sense of a perturbation, rather than a block. Like hitting a big gong with a hammer. The vibrations are still going on.

It still surprises how able they've been and Russians still are in many respects, while compared to our typical science making they've needed to work in really backwater conditions. I'd say they've had and have an advantage from being aside from some of the mainstream phenonema plaguing western science and technology making.
