Having Pavlov in the clue gives it away if you accept Pavlovian Conditioning as a type-in, but it is a valid name for that answer. Per Simply Psychology: "Classical conditioning (also known as Pavlovian conditioning) is learning through association..."

Argh, so close on the pancakes! I tried bellini, so was on the right track, but couldn't come up with the correct answer.

Also I did not realize that the roller coaster originated in Russia! A couple of the others were news to me, too. Thanks for the fun and informative quiz!

The singular of blini is blin, so by accepting that (as you accept most singulars) you would automatically accept blintz as well.

Seconded. Apparently Blintz is the stuffed version, but that seems like an acceptable answer, and the only name I've ever known them by.

I was expecting the question "What Russians are really good at."

The obvious answer would be "Copying".

It's a Cold War joke, and only a joke! I look forward to all the backlash this will create.

Two questions are unclear as to what they point to: "The first way to manufacture these diamonds" could allude both to the way or the diamond. Likewise, "the first ICBM that could be launch from these" could allude to the ICBM or the location they're launched from.

Certainly, some of these are not invented. Perhaps a more accurate title would be along the lines of "Russian Firsts."
