How many excellent universities does Russia need?

Currently rankings are the only objective measure to see how Russian universities perform on an international level. In THE’s newest ranking (find it here ) we can see that no Russian university made it to the top 100, and there are only two of them in the top 300. As Russian universities are highly specialized, they rank far better in subject rankings while this characteristic makes it harder for them to advance on the general institutional list. The questions arise: how many world-class institutes does Russia have and how many should it have after all?
