This year, a Russian received a humorous "anti-scientific" Ig Nobel Prize for the sixth time in 22 years of the award’s existence. A team of scientists, along with the Russian Yuri Ivanenko, won the award in physics for publication in the journal PLoS ONE. In it, the scientists proved that people would be able to run on the surface of water, if the attempt was carried out on the moon.

Russians have received the Ig Nobel Prize a total of five times before (http://rbth.ru/arts/2013/09/13/six_ig_nobel_prize_awards_received_by_russians_29823.html).
