work. It has been acclaimed all over the world, from authors as diverse as Sigmund Freud, Andrew R. MacAndrew, and Konstantin Mochulsky, as a masterpiece of literature and one of the greatest novels ever written. The basic structure of the book is arranged in two arcs. On the surface the book relates the story of a patricide in which all of the murdered man's sons share varying degrees of complicity. But on a deeper level this is a spiritual drama chronicling the moral struggles


wooden

; ref The wooden fortifications of Russa burned to ashes in 1190 and then in 1194, after which they were replaced by the stone fortress. In 1478, it was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Moscow together with Novgorod. The word Staraya (''Old'') was prefixed to the name in the 15th century, to distinguish it from newer settlements called Russa. Nevertheless, the current name firmly established only in the 19th century, when the salt mining settlements around the town became collectively

seen many battles. Well after its wooden walls had been burnt down and later replaced by stone fortifications, the town fought bloody battles against Swedish invaders for centuries, but the most devastating years of its history would come after the reign of Ivan the Terrible, during the Russian ''Time of Troubles'' in the early seventeenth century. Until the establishment of the Romanov Dynasty, the surrounding area was under the control of armed gangs and brigands, and the once-important city

dwindled to a mere 38 people. Over time Staraya Russa recovered, but its fate as a town on the invasion route would come back to haunt it one last time in the twentieth century, when Hitler's forces invaded during WWII and virtually levelled the historic town. Despite the destruction throughout the years, though, many old wooden houses (including the Dostoevsky residence) and several important churches remain intact, and other institutions, like the balneologic resort, have been rebuilt

There is no passenger traffic, but the railway is in use for cargo traffic. Encirclement The encirclement began as the Demyansk Offensive Operation, the first phase being carried out from 7 January-20 May 1942 on the initiative of General Lieutenant Pavel Kurochkin, commander of Northwestern Front. The intention was to sever the link between the German Demyansk positions, and the Staraya Russa railway that formed the lines of communication of the German 16. ''Armee'' (16th Army (Wehrmacht)). However, owing to the very difficult wooded and swampy terrain, and heavy snow cover, the initial advance by the Front was very modest against stubborn opposition. thumb right 300px A Bf 109G-2.

JG 54 was assigned bomber escort duties against Soviet airfields and the Baltic Fleet in the Baltic Sea ports. On this date he claimed a Yakovlev Yak-1 and a Soviet bomber. Despite his two victories, Kittel got off to a slow start in combat. On 30 June 1941 he downed his first Ilyushin Il-2 ''Shturmovik'' (Ilyushin Il-2). His third victory earned him the Iron Cross Second Class. The German advance had now taken JG 54 to Staraya Russa, just south of Leningrad. JG 54 was to stay there for nearly two years.

The peasants had to undergo military training, which caused tardiness and unseasonableness in agricultural activities. Corporal punishment was a common phenomenon. Military settlements were being created on fiscal lands (казённые земли), which would often provoke riots among the state-owned peasants (казённые крестьяне), like the ones in Kholynskaya and Vysotskaya volosts of the Novgorod guberniya in 1817 and among the Bug Cossacks in 1817–1818. Alexander I, however, stood his ground and announced that "military settlements will be created, even if we have to pave the road from Saint Petersburg to Chudov today’s Chudovo; some 100 km away from Petersburg with dead bodies". By 1825, Russia had already built military settlements in Petersburg, Novgorod (along the Volkhov River and near Staraya Russa WikiPedia:Staraya Russa Commons:Category:Staraya Russa
