Timeline of Russian inventions and technology records encompasses key events in the history of technology in Russia, starting from the Early East Slavs and up to the Russian Federation.
The entries in this timeline include mass products, technology items and single objects, most of them falling into the two categories:
- Indigenous inventions, either of worldwide importance (like arc welding, assault rifle, maser, tokamak, satellite, semiconductor heterostructures, exterrestrial robotic rover, graphene) or more local significance (like onion dome, khokhloma, ushanka);
- Products and objects with unique superlative characteristics and associated with record-breaking (like Tsar Cannon, AK-47, Arktika class icebreaker).
This timeline examines products and technologies introduced by any peoples of Russia and its predecessor state, regardless of ethnicity, and also lists inventions by naturalized immigrant citizens.
Certain innovations, achieved by a national operation, may also may be included in this timeline, in cases where the Russian side played a major role in such projects. The inventions made abroad by Russian émigrés are not mentioned here, but may be found in the list of Russian inventors.
