A wonderful scholarly work on the history of computing in the Soviet Union is now available as a free ebook. It doesn’t talk about the “cybernetics” Soviet school of theoretical computer science, except for a section on Akushsky (who worked on computer arithmetic) in which Kolmogorov is mentioned in passing, but it is still a very interesting book.
