Introduction. History Take Home Test 23. To what extend did Gorbachev overcome the internal problems he faced as leader of the USSR between 1985 and 1991. In 1982 - 1985 the Soviet Union faced political decay due to a series of deaths of political figures. In February 1982 Andropov, followed by his replacement Chernenko, in March 1985. Due to these deaths the Soviet Unions economy was left in a vulnerable states, which had become increasingly hindered due to the arms race. For many years there had bee an on going battle between the East and West to see who could produce the most outstanding technology, besides sputnik the soviets were drastically behind. Thus, to close the gap between the two, the Soviets had invested a large amount of money in microelectronics and computers, in turn draining the economy. Evidently, apart from the inefficiencies resulting from too much bureaucratic and central control the attempt by the Soviet Union to keep up with the US military might had distorted and ...
Comrade Ranjeet Brar addresses this meeting of the Stalin Society, which marked the 60th anniversary of Josef Stalins death.. His presentation concentrates on the internationalism of the Soviet Union, and, specifically, Stalins role in the solution of the national question, whereby the contradictions between formerly oppressed and oppressing nations were solved, enabling them to live in harmony, by concentrating on the essential commonality of interests of the vast masses of their populations, as being workers first and foremost.. The Soviet Union, led by Comrade Stalin, who had was appointed commissar for nationalities immediately after the October Revolution on 1917, made a seminal contribution to the understanding of the national question, helping to create a brotherhood of nations, free from national, racial and religious strife. It was a dramatic transformation from the prison of nations that had characterised tsarist Russia.. This practical example and leadership of the USSR had a ...
Prevalence of infectious diseases in migrant populations has been addressed in numerous studies. However, information is sparse on their mortality due to chronic diseases that are aetiologically associated with an infectious agent. This study investigates mortality related to infectious diseases with a specific focus on cancers of possibly infectious origin in voluntary migrants from the Former Soviet Union residing in Israel and in Germany. Both groups of migrants arrived from the Former Soviet Union in their destination countries between 1990 and 2001. Population-based data on migrants in Israel were obtained from the Israel Central Bureau of Statistics. Data for migrants in Germany were obtained from a representative sample of all migrants from the Former Soviet Union in Germany. Cause of death information was available until 2003 for the Israeli cohort and until 2005 for the German cohort. Standardized mortality ratios were calculated relative to the destination country for selected causes of death

GAO discussed U.S. assistance to the former Soviet Union (FSU), focusing on: (1) how the executive branch has ensured program and policy coordination among federal agencies; (2) whether the Agency for International Developments (AID) assistance projects have met their objectives and contributed to systematic reform; and (3) whether the Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) program has achieved its objectives on schedule and what its long term projects are. GAO noted that: (1) the FSU assistance programs coordination has improved since the President strengthened the role and authority of the FSU coordinator; (2) successful AID projects for promoting economic reform and fostering the transition to democracy were strongly supported by the FSU government, were broad in scope, and considered their own sustainability from the outset; and (3) CTR has progressed over the past year and it will likely achieve its objectives, although it still has challenges to overcome, especially in chemical weapons ...
Downloadable! Male life expectancy at birth fell by over six years in Russia between 1989 and 1994. Many other countries of the former Soviet Union saw similar declines, and female life expectancy fell as well. Using cross-country and Russian household survey data, we assess six possible explanations for this upsurge in mortality. Most find little support in the data: the deterioration of the health care system, changes in diet and obesity, and material deprivation fail to explain the increase in mortality rates. The two factors that do appear to be important are alcohol consumption, especially as it relates to external causes of death (homicide, suicide, and accidents) and stress associated with a poor outlook for the future. However, a large residual remains to be explained.

The Soviet Union was heavily dependent on rail transport, not least during the Russian Civil War and World War II, but also for industrialization according to the five-year plans. During the Soviet era, freight rail traffic increased 55 times (over that of the Russian empire just before World War I), passenger traffic increased almost 10 times, and the length of the rail network almost doubled. The Soviet Union had a railway network of 147,400 kilometres (91,600 mi) (excluding industrial railways), of which 53,900 kilometres (33,500 mi) were electrified. After the foundation of the Soviet Union the Peoples Commissariat of Railways (NKPS) (after 1946 renamed the Ministry of Railways (МПС)), the railway network expanded to a total length of 106,100 km by 1940 (vs. 81,000 km in 1917 which was exceeded in length only by the United States). The volume of freight hauled (in tonne-km) increased over 4 fold during this period. A notable project of the late 1920s and one of the centerpieces of the ...
The Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences (Kharkevich Institute) was founded on the initiative of Professor A. A. Kharkevich (1904-1965), member of the USSR Academy of Sciences. It was designed to solve problems bearing upon the progress of information theory and its applications as well as to develop the fundamentals of the progress of telecommunications in the country. The formal birthday of the Institute is December 29, 1961 - the date when the decision No.1144 of the Presidium of the USSR Academy of Sciences was issued. By the same decision, Academician A. A. Kharkevich was nominated director of the Institute. 1963 saw the commencement of studies on information processes in living nature after the laboratory of vision biophysics headed by Professor N. D.

There was one famous incident that caught my attention. Accounts of it can be found Googling. There are conflicting results on what happened, and why it happened though. One write up goes like this. Back in the cold war days, the former USSR reported that non thermal energies caused multiple health issues. American scientists disagreed with the USSR scientists findings. The American scientists then began to ridicule the Russian scientists. Not enjoying the ridicule, the Russian scientist began aiming microwave beams at the American embassy. According to the Russians the levels of microwaves being beamed would cause health issues in those that worked in the building. According to American scientists the microwave levels would not cause health issues ...

People of German heritage had resided in Eastern Europe for years, many years before even the outbreak of World War II. In the year 1937, two years before war, the NKVD began their mass operations as part of Stalins Great Purge. The first of these operations called for the arrests of all German citizens and former citizens. The Germans were said to be Nazi agents. [4][5] In total, the national operation against Soviet citizens of German descent resulted in the sentencing of at least 55,005 persons, including 41,898 sentenced to death.[6] During the war, the strategies of the Soviet Union have been criticized as racist, the extreme tactics used are theorized not only to target the Nazi forces but the German people in general. The war crimes committed such as mass rapes by Red Army soldiers are used as evidence that the Red Army viewed the German people as the enemy not the Nazi Army. Although all of this is unproven debated theory.[7] The ethnic German minority in the USSR was considered a ...

On 2 November 1942 the Extraordinary State Commission (ESC) was set up by a decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR. It had the responsibility to detect and investigate the crimes of the German Fascist Invaders and their accomplices as to the damage they had inflicted on citizens, collective farms, public organizations, state enterprises and institutions of the USSR. On 4 November 1942 Pravda announced the creation of this commission on its front page.. The ESC was nominally headed by ten prominent Soviet personages (politicians, scientists, academicians etc.) under the leadership of communist functionary N. M. Chvernik. In fact, these ten famous persons were little more than figureheads whose signatures were needed to give the reports of the commission the necessary prestige. The real work was done by an office which had at its disposal a staff of about 150 workers (approximately as many as a small Soviet ministry). More than 100 subcommissions were active on all local ...

When I was in my early 20s -- still youthful enough to consider myself an angry young man -- I discovered the novels of Sinclair Lewis. My father had had an old slipcased edition of Main Street alongside titles like Omoo and Wuthering Heights -- so Id always thought of Lewis as too musty to bother with. Yet when I finally read one of his books -- Babbitt was the first -- I was shocked by how modern it felt. Despite the references to derbies and pipe tobacco, it was as indignant and cynical as I was. When youre an angry young man, this qualifies as a good thing. I soon read Lewiss other classics -- Arrowsmith, Elmer Gantry, Dodsworth, Main Street, and It Cant Happen Here. Lewiss skepticism, his disdain for hypocrisy, and his ringing pessimism felt in step with a hypocritical and pessimistic world: it was the early 2000s, and George W. Bush was dragging us into war. Given the timing, It Cant Happen Heres dystopianism struck a chord with me. In the book, Senator Berzelius Buzz Windrip wins ...

General Information: Atypical strain isolated from the former Soviet Union, USSR. This strain lacks a plasminogen activator and is virulent by the aerosol route. Specific virulence factors are encoded within pathogenicity islands (PAIs) that are required for the invasive phenotype associated with Yersinia infections. One key virulence plasmid contained by the three human-specific pathogens is pCD1/pYv, which encodes a type III secretion system for the delivery of virulence proteins that contribute to internalization into the host cell. It is the causative agent of plague (bubonic and pulmonary) a devastating disease which has killed millions worldwide. The organism can be transmitted from rats to humans through the bite of an infected flea or from human-to-human through the air during widespread infection. Yersinia pestis is an extremely pathogenic organism that requires very few numbers in order to cause disease, and is often lethal if left untreated. The organism is enteroinvasive, and can ...

Focus on Children The tradition of leadership of Beilinson Hospital continued to the end of the 20th century. In 1991, Schneider Childrens Medical Center of Israel, the largest and most advanced childrens hospital in the Middle East, opened on Beilinson Campus. The new childrens center, which was formed on the basis of the pediatric departments of Beilinson and Hasharon Hospitals, was made possible thanks to the generous contribution of the Schneider Family. Humanity without Borders Throughout its history Beilinson Hospital has been committed to national and international humanitarian needs. It played an important role in the treatment of immigrants from the former Soviet Union and Ethiopia, many of whom came directly from the airport to the hospital, and it has sent numerous medical teams to countries in distress. In 1986, the city of Chernobyl in the former Soviet Union experienced the most severe nuclear leakage in history. Beilinson Hospital was among the first facilities to provide help ...

A portion of the above class reserved for majors Above class open to graduates only About two million Jews one third of the Jewish victims of the Holocaust had been living in the Soviet Union in 1940. Yet the role of the Holocaust in what the Soviet Union termed The Great Patriotic War has only recently emerged as a major topic of historical study. This graduate colloquium will examine some of the major issues surrounding those aspects of the Nazi genocide of the Jews that took place on Soviet territory. In addition to the history of the genocide itself including its regional variations, we will examine some of the conditions in the prewar Soviet Union that allowed for violence on this scale to take place, including comparisons between Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union, and postwar Soviet memory of the Holocaust, including its representation in literary, musical, film, and scholarly works, as well as in public commemorations and memorials of the Great Patriotic War ...

In October of 1949, USSR sent 878 experts to China to build a flight academy and supply 434 training aircraft. Eventually, 6 fighter academy and 2 bomber academies were built. Due to Korean War, they rushed 350 pilots through the first academy in one year and did not even train in night combat or complex weather conditions. By May 1951, PLAAF had 17 aircraft divisions and 34 regiments. They served mostly in secondary role to Soviet Air Force in confrontation against USAF. As USSR was withdrawing from its former base in Lushun to return to China, it provided valuable training to 105 PLAAF pilots from 1954 to 1955. Soviet instructors provided PLAAF pilots with night training, advanced combat maneuvers and training in adverse weather conditions. In a defensive cooperation agreement signed in 1957, USSR agreed to increase cooperation in aerospace tactics training and theater level exercises. By that year, PLAAF had developed its first flight training manual based on the Soviet training manual plus ...

The defeat of the Russian Empire in World War I led to the seizure of power by the Communists and the formation of the USSR. The brutal rule of Josef STALIN (1924-53) strengthened Russian dominance of the Soviet Union at a cost of tens of millions of lives. The Soviet economy and society stagnated in the following decades until General Secretary Mikhail GORBACHEV (1985-91) introduced glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring) in an attempt to modernize Communism, but his initiatives inadvertently released forces that by December 1991 splintered the USSR into 15 independent republics. Since then, Russia has struggled in its efforts to build a democratic political system and market economy to replace the strict social, political, and economic controls of the Communist period. A determined guerrilla conflict still plagues Russia in Chechnya.
Historians, political scientists, Western experts and anti-communist liberals in Russia have always attributed the Katyn massacre to the NKVD, the secret police of the Soviet Union, providing alleged evidence and documents that would prove such authorship. However, all indications suggest that the Katyn massacre is another historical falsification similar to the Ukrainian Holodomor or to the figures given on the millions of deaths of Soviet communism. The responsibility for what happened in Katyn, in light of the evidence and testimonies provided, was the work of the Nazis. 80 years after the events of Katyn (supposedly happened in April 1940) near the city of Smolensk (border with Belarus), where more than 20 thousand Polish soldiers were executed in a nearby forest, the propaganda of the cold war returns with force, and the renewed counterfeits of the West against Russia and the former USSR.. Definitely, there is not a single consistent proof of Soviet authorship in the Katyn ...
This breed group was produced in the All-Union Poultry Breeding Institute by transfusing the blood of Moscow White cocks to Grey Spotted guinea-fowl. Over a long period of time, the transfusion resulted in specimens with white pigmentation of the breast. They formed the foundation material for this breed group. Three lines have been developed by selection; they differ in production characteristics. The stock of these guinea-fowl is about 50 000 adults. They are raised on many farms in the Russian Federation and Ukraine.. The Zagorsk White-breasted guinea-fowl are similar to the Grey Spotted variety, but they are distinguished by better meat conformation and by the colour of the plumage and skin. The breast, part of the body under the wings and the abdomen have white plumage, resembling that of Moscow White fowl. The round spots on the feathers are barely visible. The shanks and beak are yellow and the skin is almost white. Zagorsk White-breasted guinea-fowl are strongly built.. Their production ...

After just one week of post-lockdown life, economic activity in Moscow is almost back to normal, with trade and services turnover reaching 98 percent of pre-pandemic levels in the Russian capital.
It would also be of great interest to know whether these individuals were in the closet or whether some found social acceptance--unspoken or not--among the peasantry. While peasants had been chained to the land under medieval conditions in the tsarist era and force-fed superstition and prejudice as a class, they were keen observers of variance in nature. And Healey himself notes that the sexual patterns and practices of the mass of Russians was marked by pagan survivals. The pre-class beliefs about the sexes, gender expression and sexuality still held some sway amongst the peasantry ...
Mencius and I are both continentalists (as opposed to globalists). Cartoon supervillains try to take over the world, Hitler was a real person who is better compared to Napoleon than Brain. Still quite bad, but Im no fan of Frederick the Great either. I dont quite buy into Mencius framing of Germany as being a rebel against the British World Order provoked into fighting, but there is a shade of truth to that counter-narrative. We have other disagreements about Hitlers regime though. Mencius refers to it favorably as a contrast to the USSR, orderly and prosperous. I dont think Hitler provided effective governance, and his vampire economy was unsustainably built on theft. I see similarity with Stalins Russia, although Stalin seems to have been creating new order in Russia to prepare for war, while Hitler wanted to fight a war for a new order. The most important difference between them was that Nazism is quite explicitly nationalist while (even post-Trotsky) the USSR was internationalist. As ...

JULY 22, 1999. Mr. Chairman and Members of the Committee, I am pleased to appear before you today to discuss the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic, recent developments in HIV research, and the many challenges that remain in the fight against HIV and the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).. The Scope of the Epidemic. AIDS was recognized eighteen years ago this summer, and continues to exact an enormous toll throughout the world, in both human and economic terms. In the United States, the rate of new HIV infections-approximately 40,000 per year-remains unacceptably high, despite an encouraging downturn in new AIDS cases and AIDS-related deaths.. In the developing world, the HIV/AIDS epidemic continues to accelerate, notably in sub-Saharan Africa, southeast Asia and on the Indian sub-continent. There are also signs of expanding epidemics in Russia and other New Independent States of the former Soviet Union. As of the end of 1998, more than 33 million people worldwide were living ...
Conclusions This study contradicts the idea that smoking is associated with greater happiness. Moreover, of relevance for policy in the fSU countries, given the lack of public knowledge about the detrimental effects of smoking on health but widespread desire to quit reported in recent research, the finding that smoking is associated with lower levels of happiness should be incorporated in future public health efforts to help encourage smokers to quit by highlighting that smoking cessation may result in better physical and emotional health.. ...

Temelin is an experiment in two ways: it is both an untested hybrid of old Soviet technology and Western safety systems, and it is the focus of a newly-emerging theory of non-violent resistence to environmental issues in a country where very recent history has confirmed the power of mass protest. On July 6 - 13 activists will once again block the gates of Temelin. They will do it with barrels, with concrete tubes, with their own bodies. The core Czech group will be joined by hundreds from Germany, Slovakia, Poland, the European Union, the CIS (former USSR), Sri Lanka, and the USA. They will come because they believe, as we do, that moving the industry from one backyard to another is not the answer. They will come because they believe that we must all stand together, reaching across the artificial barriers of race, religion and nation. Only when we have made it impossible to build a nuclear reactor anywhere in the world, when the uranium mines have all been closed, the warheads decommissioned, ...

The purpose of this article is to call attention to the revolutionary idea of multi-reflection. This idea allows the design of new engines, space propulsion systems, storage of a beam and solar energy, transmission of energy over millions of kilometers, a new weapon, etc. This method and its main innovations were offered by the author in 1983 in the former USSR. Now the author shows in a series of articles the huge possibilities of this idea in many fields such as space, aviation, energy, energy transmission, beam amplification, light transformation and so on. This article considers the direct transfer of light beam energy to mechanical energy and back ...
and Occupy Should Target and Destroy the Ruling Money Fetish. I also recommend a very fundamental analysis of capitalism, Sanders A Crisis of Value.. One short note: readers should not confuse Marxs analysis of capitalism with the state capitalist monstrosities of the former USSR and allied states, with state ownership of capitalist enterprises, or even with workers ownership of such enterprises. His analysis isnt another school of economics, like the Austrian or Keynesian schools. Nor is it based upon competition and other conditions specific to Nineteenth Century industrial capitalism. It uses a single global capital as its starting point. Hopefully the suggested readings will do away with such confusion.. The Ecological Crisis needs little introduction to readers of Nature Bats Last. While climate collapse is the most obvious facet, there are others, such as the destruction of habitats and ensuing, accelerating collapses of ecosystems and species extinctions, the acidification of ...
Baratovite is a very rare silicate mineral. It is extremely new on the mineral scene since it was only described in the last twenty five years. Baratovite is a cyclosilicate which means that the structure is composed of silicate tetrahedrons linked together so that they form isolated rings. Baratovite is one of the rare minerals that are coming out of the former USSR and finding their way onto the mineral markets. Baratovite has the look of muscovite but is easily distinguished by its brilliant blue fluorescence under ultra-violet light. ...
See also: Mass rape of German women by the Soviet army The Soviet Union practiced state atheism and militant atheism. According to the University of Cambridge, historically, the most notable spread of atheism was achieved through the success of the 1917 Russian Revolution, which brought the Marxist-Leninists to power.[40] The journalist Peter Hitchens is the ex-atheist brother of atheist Christopher Hitchens and he covered the Soviet Union during its latter years before it collapsed. According to Peter Hitchens, an atheistic society degraded the morals of the Russian people during the Soviet period (see: Soviet Union and morality).[41] As Allied troops entered and occupied Germany during the latter part of World War II, mass rapes occurred in connection with combat operations and during the occupation which followed. Historians in the Western World generally conclude that the majority of the rapes were committed by Soviet servicemen. The majority of the rapes happened in the Soviet occupation ...

On April 12th, 1961, the first human being broke free of the gravity bond with Earth, and orbited the planet. Though most everyone is familiar with the American Apollo astronauts who walked on the Moon, what it took to get there, and the One small step… of Neil Armstrong, fewer people are familiar with Yuri Gagarin, the Soviet cosmonaut who was the first human in space. He orbited Earth in his Vostok 1 spacecraft for 108 minutes.. Gagarin became an international celebrity at the time. He received the USSRs highest honor, the Hero of the Soviet Union. Quite an honor, and quite an achievement for someone who, as a child, survived the Nazi occupation of Russia by living in a tiny mud hut with those members of his family who were not deported for slave labour by the Germans. The Space Race between the USA and the USSR was in full swing at the time of Gagarins flight, and only one month after Gagarins historic journey, American astronaut Alan Shepard reached space. But Shepards journey was ...
The occupation of Baltic states by the Soviet Union was another unpleasant episode in the history of these countries. It has been publicly confirmed by the governments of all three Baltic states that the Soviet Union had occupied Baltic States causing harm for their development. Although some people consider life in the Soviet Union to be good, because of employment it provided to its citizens, harmful things done by the Soviet Union are enormous. The development of Baltic states was slowed down during that time, because there was no flow of ideas from abroad. Planned economy caused insufficient supply of goods and people werent able to buy goods they wanted. Limits were put on the freedom of individuals, which also slowed the development process, because creative and innovative people were often put in jails. The intelligence from Baltic states mostly was either killed or sent to Siberia, which also harmed the development of these regions. The great part of soil was deprived because of ...
