the Western and Bryansk fronts defeated the 2nd Panzer Army in its fortified positions around Orel. Russian history LARP has been played in Russia since at least the 1980s. The Russian word for LARP translates simply as "role-playing", since tabletop RPGs were unknown in Russia at the time LARP was invented or introduced there. Russian live role-playing is often practised under the banner of "Tolkienism (J. R. R. Tolkien)" or Tolkien fandom, though it is definitely no longer confined to Tolkien or fantasy only. Regional traditions vary greatly in their history and practice, though the now defunct Soviet (Soviet Union) "Young Pioneers (Pioneer movement)" organisation and the networks between former members seems to have played some role in spreading and coordinating the idea of live role-playing. Much more involvement is usually attributed to SF fandom clubs, which flourished in Russia in that period. Nuland was the Deputy Permanent Representative to NATO from July 2000 to July 2003.

'''''The Foundation Pit''''' (1929–1930) (''Kotlovan'') is a gloomy symbolical and semi-satirical novel by Andrei Platonov. Citation: Bullock, Philip Ross. "Andrei Platonov". The Literary Encyclopedia. 5 January 2004. accessed 29 March 2009. The plot of the novel concerns a group of workers in the early Soviet Union attempting to dig out a huge foundation pit, on the base of which a gigantic House for the whole Proletariat will be built. The workers dig daily, but they slowly cease understanding meaning in their work; the enormous foundation pit sucks out all their energy.

War crimes perpetrated by the armed forces of Soviet Russia and the Soviet Union from 1919 to 1991 include acts committed by the regular army—the Red Army (later called the Soviet Army (Soviet Armed Forces))—as well as the NKVD, including the NKVD's Internal Troops. In some cases, these crimes may have been committed on express orders of the early Soviet Government's policy of Red terror. In other instances, they were committed by regular army troops as retribution against military or civilian personnel of countries involved in conflict with (or the invasion of), the USSR, or during anti-partisan warfare.
