Plasma screen by the right features list of countries Mikhail Kalashnikov has ever visited, and respective visit dates.
Kalashnikov was granted exit permit only by early 1990s - prior to that time he'd been abroad only once, back in 1978 he went to Bulgaria for holidays - incognito, nobody knew he's the gun designer.
Actually, for a long time the West was under impression what Kalashnikov as a person does not exist, it's just what the assault rifle was named after the design bureau "Kalashnikov".
