The Russian Academy of Science was founded in Saint Petersburg by Peter the Great in 1724. The name varied over the years,
becoming the Akademiia Nauk SSSR (the USSR Academy of Science) in 1917.
The national academy of the USSR had a network of scientific research institutes across the Soviet Union, with headquarters
in Moscow. The Academy was a civil and self-governed, non-commercial organization chartered by the Government of the USSR,
consisting of specialized scientific branches.
The Sibirskoe (Siberian Branch) was established in 1950. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, by decree of the president
of Russia on December 2, 1991, the institute once again became Rossiĭskaia akademiia nauk (The Russian Academy of Science),
inheriting all facilities of the USSR Academy of Science in the territory of Russia.
