"We should make the utmost so that knowledge, experience and scientific ties of our countrymen continue serving the Russian science, the whole of Russia," the president stressed.

"Creating conditions for scientists who emigrated to return to and work in Russia is the prospect should be considered as our immediate task, Vladimir Putin said.
