Azov

the first Russian governor of Azov in 1700. While Peter was combating Charles XII, Apraksin was constructing fleets, building fortresses and havens in South Russia, notably Tavrov and Taganrog. In 1700 he was also appointed chief of the admiralty, in which post (from 1700 to 1706) his unusual technical ability was of great service. Apraksin held the chief command in the Black Sea during the campaign of the Pruth (Russo-Turkish War (1710–1711)) (1711). In March 1710 he was in command at the Siege of Vyborg (Siege of Vyborg (1710)). Taking this Swedish fortress in June, he was invested with the Order of St. Andrew and appointed governor of the conquered provinces (Estonia, Ingria, and Karelia). He commanded the Imperial Russian Navy in the taking of Helsinki (1713) - materially assisting the conquest of Finland by his operations from the side of the sea - and the great Battle of Gangut (1714). That same year he assisted the ''tsar'' in launching a new harbour in Revel. Earlier, in 1712, he held parley with Turkey, which ended in the destruction of Taganrog and the surrender of Azov to the Ottomans (Ottoman Empire). During the rule of Peter's successors, Russia took a more active role in European events. From 1726 to 1761, Russia was allied with Austria against the Ottoman Empire and Crimean Khanate, which France usually supported. In the War of Polish Succession (1733–1735), Russia and Austria blocked the French candidate to the Polish (Poland) throne. In the Russo-Turkish War of 1735-1739 (Russo-Turkish War, 1735-1739), Russia reacquired the port of Azov, but Russia's greatest reach into Europe was during the Seven Years' War (1756–1763), which was fought on three continents between Great Britain (United Kingdom) and France with numerous allies on both sides. In that war, Russia continued its alliance with Austria, but Austria shifted to an alliance with France against Prussia (Prussia (state)). In 1760 Russian forces were at the gates of Berlin. Fortunately for the Kingdom of Prussia (Prussia (state)), Elizabeth died in 1762, and her successor, Peter III (Peter III of Russia), allied Russia with Prussia because of his devotion to the Prussian king, Frederick the Great (Frederick II of Prussia). In 1736, as the Commander of the Russian army he headed the Turkish campaigns (Russo-Turkish Wars) besieging the important ports of Azak (Azov) and Özi (Ochakov). On May 21, 1735 he stormed and sacked Or Qapı (Perekop) penetrating into the Crimea peninsula. Münnich destroyed the important Tatar cities of Kezlev, Aqmescit (Simferopol), and Bakhchisaray. He was forced out of the peninsula due to poor logistics and battle fatigue of his formations, while another General, Count Peter von Lacy (Peter Lacy), took Azak (Azov) earning himself a rank of the General-Fieldmarshal. Münnich refused to resume the campaign the very next year, but he returned to the lower Dnieper steppes in 1737, and on July 2 took the fortress of Özi (Ochakov) with the help of the Russian artillery. There is also a medieval Hungarian (Hungarian people) legend that says the Huns, as well as the Magyars, are descended from twin brothers named Hunor and Magor respectively, who lived by the sea of Azov in the years after the flood, and took wives from the Alans. The version of this legend in the 14th century ''Chronicon Pictum'' equates this ''Magor'' with Magog, son of Japheth. In Islam 0.96 Lacy had reached the rank of Field Marshal with the outbreak of the Russo-Turkish War (Russo-Turkish War, 1735-1739), in which his success exceeded even the most unreasonable expectations. In 1736 he was in charge of the Don Army which took the key citadel of Azov, and in the next year his corps crossed the Syvash marshes into Crimea, where he fell upon the 15,000-strong Crimean army and routed them in two battles, on June 12 and June 14. In 1738, Lacy's corps again landed in Crimea and took the fortress of Çufut Qale near the Khan's capital, Bakhchisaray.

in Voronezh, where he would supervise the construction of the first Russian fleet. He won his colonelcy at the siege of Azov (Azov campaigns) (1696). He was nominated the first Russian governor of Azov in 1700. While Peter was combating Charles XII, Apraksin was constructing fleets, building fortresses and havens in South Russia, notably Tavrov and Taganrog. In 1700 he was also appointed chief of the admiralty, in which post (from 1700 to 1706) his unusual technical ability was of great service. 19th-century groups In the early 19th century, a number of communities appeared in Tula (Tula, Russia), Voronezh and Tambov, which followed Jewish traditions and halacha. They were also called ''zhidovstvuyuschiye'' and were persecuted severely in the times of Nicolas I. Since the beginning of the 20th century, they have been also called ''iudeystvuyuschie'', from ''iudeystvo'', a neutral term for the Jewish religion. Now they are generally considered a part of Jewish people (although with no real Israelite descent) and some of them have emigrated to Israel (Aliyah). These groups, however, are not linked to the Sect of Skhariya. birth_date wikipedia:Voronezh commons:Воронеж


Arkhangelsk

and Taganrog. In 1700 he was also appointed chief of the admiralty, in which post (from 1700 to 1706) his unusual technical ability was of great service. North Russia After Jutland the battleship threat from Germany receded somewhat and the danger from mines (Naval mine) and submarines grew. Especially vulnerable were the two ports of Murmansk and Archangel (Arkhangelsk) in North Russia used by British merchant ships bringing materiel to their ally. Mine sweeping naval trawlers were sent out to counter this threat and two old cruisers were modified to act as repair workshops and headquarters for this flotilla. Agar joined one of them, HMS ''Iphigenia'' (HMS Iphigenia (1891)), in December 1916, as executive officer. The ''Iphigenia'' dated from 1892, displaced 3,400 tons and in her early days could make 20 knots. In 1913, Vilkitsky's expedition discovered Severnaya Zemlya, perhaps one of the most important Russian discoveries in the Arctic at the time. Other discoveries were an island that now bears his name (Vilkitsky Island), as well as the islands of Maly Taymyr and neighboring Starokadomsky (Starokadomsky Island). In 1914—1915, Vilkitsky's expedition made the first through voyage from Vladivostok to Arkhangelsk, discovered Novopashenniy Island (now Zhokhova Island), and described the southern coastline of Severnaya Zemlya. A case that made news in Russia was that of an Arkhangelsk entrepreneur Nikolay P. Sutyagin, who built what was reportedly the world's tallest single-family wooden house for himself and his family, only to see it condemned as a fire hazard.
