The paper is dedicated to the analysis of the condition of the Russian scientific sphere. After the breakup of the Soviet Union, science was in stagnation because of numerous problems such as lack of systematization, bad conditions for scientists’ work, and many others. To solve those problems nowadays, funding has been increased, additional motivational factors have been added, and measures have been implemented to decrease corruption in scientific sphere. According to forecast, in 2019–2020 condition of science will improve, and Russia will strengthen its positions in the global ratings. This article covers the issues of establishment of the Russian science and presents generalized data in graph forms. These data concern global rating, expenditure, budget, and position of Russia in comparison with other developed countries. The analysis is an inseparable part of a scientific article as it allows to follow the dynamics of the development of the Russian science. It is essential that this paper has a very clear focus and practical importance strengthened by target setting, analysis of the problem, and marked directions of its problem-solving in order to improve indicators of statistic data as well as indicators connected with leadership and dominance implied in real life.
