It stands to reason that since Russia was first in, they got many blueprints, prototypes, and production models of the new rocket technology, and other associated technologies like explosives/propellants, materials (composites/alloys), and missives (heh, not a typo in case anyone was wondering). While I agree the US certainly got most if not all the scientists, it seems logical that Russia got most of the good booty before the Americans even set foot in the city.
