With no influence of Reinassance, Russia was culturally and technologically behind the Western European countries. When the Russian Tsar Ivan the Grate visited Western Europe he was astonished how advanced they are compared to the Russian society. When he returned to Russia he brought technicians, teachers, and soldiers for the purpose of westernization Russia. Thus Russia adopted many new European technologies, cultures, and ideas.
