The maxim «Science knows no country» appeared in Europe in the first decades of the 19 th century. It was disputed in extremely rare cases, although in relation to historical science it was used with reservations. In the late Stalinist USSR, this saying was banned as a manifestation of «arrant cosmopolitanism».
