in 1937. Ivankovo Reservoir and Ivankovo hydroelectrical plant were also created as a part of the project. Many villages and the town Korcheva were submerged under water. Russia In the "Trust Operation" (1921–1926), the Soviet State Political Directorate (OGPU) set up a fake anti-Bolshevik underground organization, "Monarchist Union of Central Russia". The main success of this operation was luring Boris Savinkov and Sidney Reilly into the Soviet Union, where they were arrested and executed. Plot Tintin, a reporter for ''Le Petit Vingtième'', and his dog Snowy are sent on an assignment to the Soviet Union. Departing from Brussels, his train is blown up en route to Moscow by an agent of the Soviet secret police, the OGPU (State Political Directorate), who believes him to be a "dirty little bourgeois". Tintin is blamed for the bombing by the Berlin police but escapes to the border of the Soviet Union. Here he is brought before the local Commissar's office, where the same OGPU agent that tried to kill Tintin on the train secretly instructs the Commissar that they must make the reporter "disappear... accidentally". After escaping again, Tintin finds "how the Soviets fool the poor idiots who still believe in a Red Paradise", by burning bundles of straw and clanging metal in order to trick visiting English Marxists (Communist Party of Great Britain) into believing that Soviet factories are productive, when in fact they are not even operational. Hergé 1999 1930 (#Her30) . pp. 4–30. Additionally, it is doubtful that all of the writers involved in the project were unaware of the brutality or actual living conditions present in the camp. In fact, one of the contributors, Sergei Alymov, was a prisoner at the Belomor camp and was the editor for the camp newspaper ''Perekovka,'' ("Re-forging"). Similarly, Aleksandr Avdeenko's account of the trip to Belomor includes conversations between OGPU (State Political Directorate) chief Semyon Firin and Prince Mirsky (D.S. Mirsky) that reveal at least some of the writers were aware of the true nature of Belomor. While in Astrakhan, Rakovsky was employed by the Regional Planning Committee (Economy of the Soviet Union) (''Gubplan''). He was also active as a writer, starting work on a volume detailing the sources of Utopian socialism and the thought of Saint-Simon (Claude Henri de Rouvroy, comte de Saint-Simon). Rakovsky, in Fagan, ''Opposition and Exile''; Tănase, "The Renegade Istrati" Rakovsky remained involved in Trotskyist politics, was contacted by Panait Istrati and the Greek (Greece) writer Nikos Kazantzakis, and corresponded with Trotsky (who had himself been exiled to Almaty). Most of his writings were confiscated by the State Political Directorate, but the letter on Soviet "bureaucratism" he addressed to Nikolai Valentinov survived, and became notorious as a critique of Stalinism (under the title ''"Professional Dangers" of Power''). Rakovsky, in Fagan, ''Opposition and Exile''; Tismăneanu, p.61-62 Mistrusting Stalin's new leftist policies, he foresaw the renewed moves against the Left Opposition (inaugurated by Trotsky's 1929 expulsion). In January 1930, restored in the party and appointed to the Nizhniy-Novgorod Planning Committee; in 1932 member of the Board of the People's Commissariat of the Light Industry, acting head of the People's Commissariat of State Farms. In January 1933, expelled, arrested and interrogated by the GPU (State Political Directorate); sentenced to 3 years exile; finally expelled in 1936 and arrested again on 20 December 1936; he refused to confess and on 13 July 1937 he was sentenced to death and shot. He was rehabilitated by the government of Mikhail Gorbachev in 1988. With the creation of the Soviet Union all the Cheka departments were consolidated into the State Political Directorate of NKVD that consisted of the respective republican ministries. The republican security services were finally integrated into the Ministry of Internal Affairs of USSR on July 10, 1934 through March 13, 1954. At first it was named as the Chief Directorate of the State Security for NKVD, but was later reorganised during World War II and the death of Stalin. The propaganda story The most popular account of the story is as follows: born to poor peasants in Gerasimovka (Gerasimovka, Sverdlovsk Oblast), a small village 350 kilometers north-east of Yekaterinburg (then known as Sverdlovsk), Morozov was a dedicated communist (communism) who led the Young Pioneers at his school, and a supporter of Stalin's collectivization of farms (Collectivisation in the USSR). In 1932, at the age of 13, Morozov reported his father to the political police (GPU (State Political Directorate)). Supposedly, Morozov's father, the Chairman of the Village Soviet, had been "''forging documents and selling them to the bandits and enemies of the Soviet State''" (as the sentence read). The elder Morozov, Trofim, was sentenced to ten years in a labour camp (Gulag), and later executed. However, Pavlik's family did not take kindly to his activities: on September 3 of that year, his uncle, grandfather, grandmother and a cousin murdered him, along with his younger brother. All of them except the uncle were rounded up by the GPU and convicted to "the highest measure of social defense" - execution by a firing squad. After the assumption of power by the Bolsheviks, Golitsyn remained in Russia, earning his living by repairing shoes and by maintaining public vegetable gardens. Although he was not occupied with political activity, during the period from 1920 to 1924 he was twice arrested by the organs TO VCHK-OGPU (State Political Directorate), on the suspicion of connection with counterrevolutionaries. After his third arrest (on 12 February 1925), on the decision of the OGPU board of 22 June 1925, he was executed on 2 July 1925, in Leningrad. '''Active Measures''' ( ; 1885, Pavlograd - March 22, 1925) headed the Soviet foreign intelligence service, the ''INO'' of the GPU (State Political Directorate), from 1921 until May 1922, when he was sent to head the GPU in the South Caucasus region where had been involved in the suppression of the 1924 August Uprising in the Georgian SSR. He died in a plane crash near Tiflis (Tbilisi) in unclear circumstances. Mogilevsky was born to Jewish parents in Pavlograd. In 1903 he joined the RSDRP, and in 1904 Mogilevsky was arrested. In 1906 he left Russia for Switzerland where Mogilevsky met Vladimir Lenin who recommended him to be admitted into Bolshevik section of the party. At the outbreak of the World War I he returned to Russia and was a soldier on the front. Mogilevsky participated in the 1917 October Revolution. During the Russian Civil War he was appointed to various positions in the GPU (State Political Directorate). Since May 1922 Mogilevsky headed the Caucausian GPU and was responsible for intelligence in Iran and Turkey. He participated in stifling the August Uprising in Georgian SSR. Mogilevsky was decorated with the Order of the Red Banner in 1924 for his outstanding activities in the suppression of the uprising


Gagauzia

(with Gagauz (Gagauz language)) is an official language of Gagauzia (autonomous republic within Moldova) The MSSR's drive towards independence from the USSR was marked by civil strife as conservative activists in the east (especially in Tiraspol), as well as Communist party activists in Chişinău worked to keep the MSSR within the Soviet Union. The main success of the national movement in 1988-1989 was the adoption on August 31, 1989 by the Supreme Soviet of the Moldavian SSR of the Moldavian language as official, declaration in the preambule of a Moldavian-Romanian linguistic unity, and the return of the language to the pre-Soviet Latin alphabet. In 1990, when it became clear that Moldova was eventually going to secede, a group of pro-USSR activists in Gagauzia and Transnistria proclaimed independence in order to remain within the USSR. Gagauzia was eventually peacefully incorporated into Moldova as an autonomous territory, but relations with Transnistria soured. The star and the moon are two sky elements symbolizing the Tengriist (Tengriism) beliefs of the sky-worshiping ancient Turks. In Turkic Mythology (Mythology of the Turkic and Mongolian peoples) four colors are associated with four cardinal directions such as "gök-blue" (east), "ak-white" (west), "al-red" (south) and "kara-black" (north). These colors represent the direction towards the zenith (Zenith) where the Tengri is residing in the sky. Red and white colors on the flag of Turkey symbolize the south-western branch of Turks (Turkic people) called Oghuzes who are the founders of present-day Turkey as well as Azerbaijan, Turkmenistan and Gagauzia. Black Sea and Turkish (:tr:Akdeniz) Qırımtatar (:crh:Aq deñiz) names of Mediterranean (''Akdeniz'') got their name from the same mythology; '''Kara'''deniz being in the north and '''Ak'''deniz being in the west respectively. Turkestan (East Turkestan)'s flag is similar to Turkey's, with only difference being blue. birth_place Ceadîr-Lunga, Gagauzia, Moldavian SSR death_date DATE OF BIRTH August 12, 1957 PLACE OF BIRTH Ceadîr-Lunga, Gagauzia, Moldavian SSR DATE OF DEATH ::: Possibly a bad thing, but the cure may be even worse if it means putting the Moldova flag on stubs which deal 100% with Transnistria. That (whose flag Transnistria is under) is a sore point for Transnistria, but not so much for Moldova. This is because Moldova lets Transnistria fly its own flag just as they let the autonomous region of Gagauzia also fly its own flag. If we remove any mention of Transnistria, and replace it with the word Moldova, that would not only invite more conflict but would also in many cases even be outright misleading; especially in bio-stub cases where, in some cases, political leaders weren't even born in Moldova. Note also that in Transnistria you now have a new generation coming of age which was born under independence. Putting a Moldovan flag on these people who have ''never'' in their life been subject to Moldovan jurisdiction would indicate POV, especially if we know better and if we already know which solution that will satisfy both sides. Considering the alternatives, I therefore still vote for '''keep''' even though I fully understand your concerns and even share them myself. - Mauco (User:William Mauco) 13:01, 27 April 2006 (UTC)


Da Nang

for upkeep. Economy With a GDP per capita of 9.57 million VND in 2007 Binh Dinh is ranked 4 out of 8 provinces and cities in the South Central Coast (Nam Trung Bo). While being significantly behind the main success stories of the region, namely Da Nang and Khanh Hoa Province, it is more developed than most other provinces in the region. It has been benefiting from its strategic position as one of the main gateways to the Central Highlands (Tay Nguyen) and its port (Quy Nhon Port). It is the region's third largest industrial center (mainly based on furniture manufacturing) and also has strong agricultural, forestry, livestock, and fishing sectors. Industry Binh Dinh has transformed itself in a regional center of furniture manufacturing. The industry has been successful in creating large numbers of jobs, with furniture manufacturing enterprises employing around 40,000 workers and manufacturing in total around 107,000, making Binh Dinh leading in the South Central Coast in terms of industrial employment. More than two thirds of the province's gross industrial output is produced in Quy Nhon, which is the regions third largest industrial center after Da Nang and Nha Trang. Phu Tai Industrial Park is central to Binh Dinh's industry in general and the furniture industry in particular. Several chemical enterprises that supply the furniture and wood processing industry have been set up in the vicinity of the industrial park. People’s Committee Binh Dinh (2007): Yearbook of Information on Enterprises in Binh Dinh Province. Labour Publishing House, Hanoi: 162-165 In early August Major General Don Robertson, commanding the 1st Marine Division (1st Marine Division (United States)), turned his attention to the Que Son Valley following several major operations around Da Nang. In an attempt to draw the PAVN into another destructive confrontation Robertson launched Operation Cochise on August 11. However the PAVN largely managed to avoid contact with the three Marine battalions tasked with the operation which ended on August 28 with only modest results. Pre-primary education Public kindergartens usually admit children ranging from 18 months to 5 years of age. Sometimes, four- or five-year-old children are taught the alphabet and basic arithmetic. This level of education is not compulsory and tends to be popular in major cities such as Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hai Phong, Can Tho and Vung Tau. The missions from Tan Son Nhut began 21 April 1965, using the call signs ''Ethan Alpha'' and ''Ethan Bravo'', which became standard. After refueling at Da Nang Air Base, Ethan Alpha made a wave-top approach to its orbit station, where it remained five hours. Because of the threat of MiG interception, EC-121s were protected by a MiGCAP (Combat Air Patrol) of Lockheed F-104 Starfighters, and if for any reason the MiGCAP could not rendezvous, the EC-121s cancelled their mission. Air conditioning systems aboard the EC-121 were virtually useless in this profile and the heat produced by the electronics, combined with the threat of being shot down, made Alpha orbit missions in particular highly stressful. Michel 1997, p. 48. On 10 July 1965, in its first airborne-controlled interception, an EC-121 provided warning to a pair of US F-4C (McDonnell Douglas F-4 Phantom II) fighters, resulting in the shooting down of two MiG-17s. The 2nd Battalion 3rd Marines made a night helicopter assault in the Elephant Valley south of Da Nang on 12 August 1965 shortly after Marine ground troops arrived in country. On 17 August 1965 in Operation Starlite the 2nd Battalion 4th Marines landed in three helicopter landing zones (LZs) west of the 1st VC Regiment in the Van Tuong village complex, Commons:Category:Da Nang
