No, it's (probably) not Russia.

Also, as I understand it, the Russian word in this situation was more
like asking researchers to propose for research grants. The translation
'bounty' or 'contest' was a bad translation and caused a string of
misleading articles. It is like saying that the National Science
Foundation is holding a contest for Tor research.

Please correct me if I am misunderstanding the translation.
