and the lake was chosen by Iona Sysoevich as a place for his fairy-tale residence (House). All the construction works were carried out between 1667 and 1694. Major buildings include the ornate Savior Church-na-Senyakh (1675), the sombre Church of St. Gregory (1670), and the barbican churches of St. John the Apostle (1683) and of the Resurrection of Christ (1670). The residence, often erroneously called kremlin, also includes eleven ornate tower bells, numerous palaces, several small belfries, and the diminutive baroque Church of Our Lady of Smolensk (1693). All the churches are elaborately painted and decorated. The cathedral and four tall kremlin churches with their silver "blind" domes were imitated throughout the city. This is particularly evident in the Savior-on-the-Market church and the cathedral church of the Nativity convent, both dating from the 17th century and situated near the kremlin walls. The oldest church within the town center was consecrated to St. Isidore the Blessed in 1565. They Wikipedia:Rostov (disambiguation)

(File:Bundesarchiv Bild 101I-452-0985-36, Russland, Generäle Löhr und W. v. Richthofen.jpg) In the winter, 1941–1942, the stalemate on the north and central sectors was not mirrored in the south. Army Group South had overrun the Ukraine, were outside Rostov, considered the gate to the Caucasus and its rich

oil fields, and had occupied most of the Crimea. However, in December the Soviets made an amphibious landing at the Kerch Peninsula, on the extreme east coast of the Crimea. The landing threatened to cut off the German Eleventh Army (11th Army (Wehrmacht)) commanded by Erich von Manstein, which were engaged in the siege of Sevastopol (Siege of Sevastopol (1941-1942)) on the southern-central tip of the Crimea. Manstein called off the siege and prepared, though outnumbered and refused army reinforcements by Hitler who was building Army Group South for a different operation (Case Blue), to repel the danger. On 31 March, he laid down his plans and called his offensive Operation ''Trappenjagd'' (Bustard Hunt). Hayward 1998, pp. 48, 67. In 1108, Yuri was sent by his father to govern in his name the vast Rostov-Suzdal (Vladimir-Suzdal) province in the north-east of Kievan Rus'. In 1121, he quarrelled with the boyars of Rostov and moved the capital of his lands from that city to Suzdal. As the area was sparsely populated, Yuriy founded many fortresses there. He established the towns of Ksniatin in 1134, Pereslavl-Zalesski and Yuriev-Polski in 1152, and Dmitrov in 1154. The establishment of Tver, Kostroma, and Vologda is also popularly assigned to Yuri. In 1934 after the reorganization of security apparatus (the OGPU was joint to NKVD as a GUGB), Abakumov started his work in a 1st Section of Economics Department (''EKO'') by the Main Directorate of State Security (GUGB) of NKVD. Then on the first of August 1934 he was transferred to The Chief Directorate of Camps and Labour Colonies well known as GULAG, where he served to 1937, mainly as operative officer in 3rd Section of Security Department of GULAG of the NKVD. In April 1937 Abakumov was moved to the 4th Department (''OO'') of GUGB of the NKVD where he served until March 1938. After the next reorganization of NKVD structure in March 1938, he became assistant to the chief of the 4th Department in the 1st Directorate of the NKVD, and then from September 29 to November 1, 1938 he fulfilled duties of assistant to Pyotr Fedotov, the head of the 2nd Department (Secret Political Dep – or. ''SPO'') of GUGB of the NKVD. Next, until the end of 1938, he worked in ''SPO'' GUGB NKVD as a head of one of the Sections. Abakumov had survived the great purge by participating in it. He executed each order without scruples, probably saving him from facing an execution squad himself. Near the end of December 1938 Abakumov was moved from Moscow to Rostov, where soon he became the head of UNKVD of Rostov Oblast, (the head of the local NKVD Office). * 1238: Vladimir and Moscow were devastated, Battle of the Sit River is fought shortly after * 1238-1239: Rostov, Uglich, Yaroslavl, Kostroma, Kashin (Kashin (town)), Ksnyatin (Sknyatino), Gorodets, Galich (Galich, Russia), Pereslavl (Pereslavl-Zalessky), Yuriev (Yuriev-Polsky), Dmitrov, Volok (Volokolamsk), Tver and Torzhok were devastated.

Rostov

'''Rostov''' (

While the official name of the town is Rostov, it is also known to Russians as '''Rostov Veliky''', i. e. ''Rostov the Great.'' This name is used to distinguish it from Rostov-on-Don, which is now a much larger city. '''Rostov Yaroslavsky''' is the official name of its railway station (due to its position in Yaroslavl Oblast).
