presidency, Putin claims that U.S. nuclear scientists working
the Manhattan Project to develop an atomic weapon - also
the Soviet Union acquire it.

Nuclear Scientists Helped Soviets Obtain the Bomb
was the cream of the scientific world that was gathered in America, and I
personally get the impression that they consciously gave us information on the
atomic bomb. They did it deliberately because the atom bomb had been used on
Hiroshima and Nagasaki and at the time, scientists from mankind's intellectual
elite understood the consequences of unilateral possession of such a weapon."

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin praised the role played by American nuclear
scientists in developing the nuclear bomb in the USSR and eliminating the U.S.
monopoly on the most destructive weapon in human history.
At a meeting with commanders
of Army brigades and divisions, the head of government began by speaking of the
need to preserve the global strategic balance, using as an example the
participants of "Manhattan Project," who even in the 1940s, Putin asserted,
understood and recognized the need to cooperate with the Soviet Union.
“You know, back at that time,
when the States already had nuclear weapons and the Soviet Union was just
building them, a significant portion of the information we received came to us
through Soviet foreign intelligence channels. In fact, they carried the
information away not on microfilm, but literally in suitcases. Suitcases!” said
the prime minister.
Continuing his excursion into
history, he recalled an episode in which Soviet scientists confronted serious problems
with their calculations, so they appealed to Danish nuclear scientist Niels Bohr, who was working
for the Americans, and who helped them.
“When our scientists couldn't
calculate, they directly approached him at one of the international conferences
for young, little-known specialists. They told him bluntly: “You know, we have
gone over our calculations again and again and nothing seems to work.” So he
calculated for them - he helped them,” Putin said.
He expressed confidence that
the members of the global intellectual elite, who were recruited by the Americans
to work on the nuclear bomb, deliberately set out to cooperate with the Soviet
Putin presidential campaign

At the same time, Putin has no
doubt that Soviet scientists, headed by Igor Kurchatov, was on
the cusp of independently developing nuclear weapons. “Simply, the work would
have lasted a little longer and would have cost more," the prime minister
