Don't claim to know it all, but pretty sure everyone knows the stg was an enormous influence on the ak. Plus Kalashnikov was one of many engineers working on the rifle. Knowing soviets, he probably looked the part of whatever communist model they had envisioned.

Being that the one blog begins with "When did the Russians ever invent anything?", I'd say it's a pretty biased blog post. A simple Google search will turn up several Russian and Soviet era inventions.

If my history knowledge is accurate, the US and Russia spit up all the great German engineers. Project paper clip and so forth. China and Russia have always been copycats, I'm sure that blog post was just referring to that.
