Vilnius

The Soviets annexation included all Polish (Poland) territory east of the line of the rivers Pisa (Pisa River), Narew, Bug (Bug River), and San (San River), except for western part of the Wilno Voivodship with its capital Wilno (Vilnius), which was given to Lithuania (see map (:File:Lithuania territory 1939-1940.svg)), and the Suwałki region, which was annexed by Nazi Germany. Following the start of the Polish-Bolshevik War in 1919, it was occupied by the Red Army, which was pushed back by the Polish Army. In 1920, it was again occupied by the Red Army, but Soviets officially recognized the sovereignty of Lithuanian Republic (Lithuania) over the city immediately after defeat during Battle of Warsaw (Battle of Warsaw (1920)). During their retreat, the Bolsheviks passed the sovereignty over the area to Lithuania

, but it often proved incapable of restoring peace and order. On April 9, 1989, the army, together with MVD units, killed 20 demonstrators in Tbilisi in Georgia. The next major crisis occurred in Azerbaijan, when the Soviet army forcibly entered Baku on January 19–20, 1990, resulting in the death of 137 people. On January 13, 1991 Soviet forces stormed the State Radio and Television Building and the television retranslation tower in Vilnius, Lithuania, both under opposition control, killing 14 people and injuring 700. This action was perceived by many as heavy-handed and achieved little. Overview The town was built on the main road leading from Vilnius to Minsk. It is divided into two sections: the "lower neighborhood" along the river and the "upper neighborhood" toward the hills. Half of the town square is framed by the remains of 12th century buildings, including a bell tower, a palace, and a monastery. Most of the other remaining impressive buildings in the town are from the 19th century. Pre-WWII images of old Valozhyn On the "Belarus Travel" website Following the Partitions of Poland, the area was annexed by Imperial Russia and the palace was abandoned soon afterwards. The castle was also neglected. During the final stages of Napoleon's invasion of Russia it was there that the Grande Armée made its last stand in former Grand Duchy of Lithuania. In early November 1812 Napoleon Bonaparte gave his last orders to his marshals there, after which he left for Vilnius. On November 21 of that year the Polish-born Russian general Yefim Chaplits arrived at the French camp there and defeated the already-routed French forces led by Marshal Victor (Claude Victor-Perrin, duc de Belluno). In the effect of the fights the town was completely demolished, as were the monastery and the castle. Because of that, in mid-19th century the town had not more than 500 inhabitants. thumb 300px Hans von Luck's map of 7th Panzer Division 7th Panzer (Image:Moskau1941vonLuckJackroma.jpg)'s advance to Jachroma, North of Moscow on the Moscow-Volga Canal (Moscow Canal) On 22 June 1941 the invasion of the Soviet Union (Operation Barbarossa) began. Luck, now a Hauptmann, was attached to the Division HQ, and the division was attached to 3rd Panzer Group under Army Group Center. 3rd Panzer Group captured Vilnius, Lithuania before advancing on Minsk. During this advance Luck had a narrow escape, when he and his adjutant in a Mercedes cabriolet stumbled into a large group of Russian infantry along a narrow wooded track. The adjutant firing wildly, they managed to escape. Luck. ''Panzer Commander'', p. 68. After the capture of Minsk the armored spearhead continued east towards Vitebsk. After Vitebsk, Luck was again assigned as commander of the Armoured Reconnaissance Battalion, after the previous commander was killed in action. Kazimierz became Podczaszy of Lithuania since 1699, Grand Treasurer of Lithuania in 1707–1709, nominated by King Stanisław Leszczyński. He was also Deputy Chancellor of Lithuania in 1712–1724. Castellan of Vilnius since 1724 and starost of Krzemieniec, Wieliż and Uświaty. Scientific work He often traveled to London where he ordered astronomical equipment from Jesse Ramsden and John Dollond: a 4-foot transit telescope in 1765, 3.5-foot achromatic telescope in 1770, 8-foot mural quadrant in 1777, and meridian circle in 1788. Other purchases included octant (Octant (instrument)), equatorial (Equatorial mount), two theodolites, 10-foot sextant (Sextant (astronomical)). The observatory was expanded by architect Marcin Knackfus in 1782–1788 to accommodate the new equipment. Poczobutt observed solar and lunar eclipses, comets and asteroids (including Ceres (1 Ceres), Pallas (2 Pallas), Juno (3 Juno)), and calculated geographic coordinates of settlements in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania (including Vilnius and Hrodna). In addition, he made measurements of Mercury (Mercury (planet)) to compute its orbit; later this data was used by Jérôme Lalande. He described 16-star constellation, which he named Taurus Poniatovii in honor of King Poniatowski (it is now obsolete and considered to be part of the Ophiuchus). His recorded observations amounted to 34 volumes. In 1770 he became the first in Lithuania to systematically measure and record weather temperature (continuous records survive since 1777). Poczobutt was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1771 and a corresponding member of the French Academy of Sciences in 1778. He was awarded the Order of Saint Stanislaus in 1785 and Order of the White Eagle (Order of the White Eagle (Poland)) in 1793. On January 5, 1919, the Red Army entered Minsk almost unopposed, thus putting an end to the short-lived Belarusian People's Republic. At the same time the Polish and Belarusian self-defence units sprung up across Western Belarus. Ill-equipped and composed mostly of local recruits, they were determined to defend their homes from what the newspapers described as a ''Red menace''. Similar Bolshevik groups were operating in the sector and a series of skirmishes ensued. The Polish-Soviet struggle over Vilna (Vilnius) in the first week of 1919 was a sign of the things to come, as Polish militia was forced to withdraw after first organised units of the Soviet Western Army entered the city. In response, the Polish Army started sending the units eastwards to help the self-defence, while the Soviets did the same, but in the opposite direction. The open conflict seemed inevitable. '''Kazys Boruta''' (Kūlokai, near Marijampolė, 6 January 1905 – Vilnius, 9 March 1965) was a Lithuanian writer and poet. After the Soviet occupation of Lithuania, his student Antanas Sniečkus propagated Mickevičius' personality cult. In his honor the city of Marijampolė was renamed ''Kapsukas'' (1956–1989) and Vilnius University (1955–1990) bore his name. Two large sculptures of Mickevičius were erected in Vilnius: one in front of the Vilnius Town Hall (1962) and another, depicting Mickevičius with Lenin, in Antakalnis (1979). legislature Council of People's Commissars capital Vilnius, Minsk, Smolensk national_motto Litbel's capital was initially Vilnius. In April it was moved to Minsk, after Vilnius was seized by the Polish Army during the Vilna offensive. Soviet premier Vladimir Lenin hoped to start peace negotiations with Poland via Polish communist Julian Markhlevski and officially liquidated Litbel on 17 July 1919. Minsk was lost during the Operation Minsk, thus the government of Litbel – which in fact no longer existed – evacuated to Smolensk in August 1919. By late July 1919, almost the entire territory of Litbel was occupied by foreign armies. death_date WikiPedia:Vilnius Dmoz:Regional Europe Lithuania Localities Vilnius Commons:Category:Vilnius


Baku

occurred in Azerbaijan, when the Soviet army forcibly entered Baku on January 19–20, 1990, resulting in the death of 137 people. On January 13, 1991 Soviet forces stormed the State Radio and Television Building and the television retranslation tower in Vilnius, Lithuania, both under opposition control, killing 14 people and injuring 700. This action was perceived by many as heavy-handed and achieved little. The ship was renamed ''Admiral Gorshkov'' after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, as the city of Baku was now in independent Azerbaijan. Sergey Gorshkov was responsible for the expansion of the Soviet Navy during the Cold War. Geller's first notable result was sixth place in the 1947 Ukrainian Chess Championship at Kiev with 9.5 15; the winner was Alexei Sokolsky. He shared 3rd–5th places at Baku 1948 with 9 15, an event won by Jüri Randviir. Geller scored 11 18 in the 1948 Ukrainian Championship at Kiev for a shared 5th–8th place; the winners were Alexei Sokolsky and Poliak.

By May 1919, the proposal appeared to be quite empty. A continuation of the previous year's Operation Barbarossa and intended to finally knock the Soviet Union out of the war, the operation involved a two-pronged attack against the rich oilfields of Baku as well as an advance in the direction of Stalingrad along the Volga River, to cover the flanks of the advance towards Baku. For this part of the operation, Army Group South (Army Group South) (''Heeresgruppe Süd'') of the German Army (''Wehrmacht Heer'') was sub-divided into Army Groups A (Army Group A) and B (Army Group B) (''Heeresgruppe A'' and ''B''). Army Group A was tasked with crossing the Caucasus mountains to reach the Baku oil fields (Oil industry in Azerbaijan#World War II), while Army Group B protected its flanks along the Volga.

The capital of Azerbaijan, Baku ranked as the largest centre for the production of oil industry equipment before World War II. The World War II Battle of Stalingrad was fought to determine who would have control of the Baku oil fields. Fifty years before the battle, Baku produced half of the world's oil supply. By the end of 1941, hundred of thousands of Azerbaijanis (Azerbaijani people) had joined the People's Voluntary Corps. About 641,000 Commons:Category:Baku

Christchurch

February 2011, a magnitude 6.3 aftershock struck 10 km south of the city centre at 5 km deep. Already damaged buildings collapsed, killing 185 people, 115 of which resulted from the six storey Canterbury Television building collapsing and catching fire. Many other central city buildings, old and new, were damaged beyond repair and were subsequently demolished. Liquefaction severely affected the eastern suburbs, resulting in 10,000 homes having to be abandoned due to land damage (the "residential red zone"). Some residents moved out of the city post-quake - many moved out to the Waimakariri and Selwyn Districts north and south of the city respectively, but others have moved to other areas in Canterbury and New Zealand, and some have moved overseas. International tourism, especially foreign-student education for the Asian market, was a growing sector of the Christchurch economy until they were scared away by continuing quakes. The electronics and software development industries remain strong. A very hip scene has developed in some of the suburbs close to the centre, and many 'gapfiller' projects (as part of the earthquake recovery) are stunning. Rebuilding in most areas of the city has commenced; in other areas, the rebuild is still being hampered by insurance claims and court cases. Lonely Planet declared post-earthquake Christchurch as one of the top 10 travel destinations in the world.

In 2000, The Calhoun School hired FX Fowle to design a four-story addition, which was completed for the 2004 school year. DesignShare (http: www.designshare.com) , a journal of educational facilities planning, called the four-floor addition a "courageous design," with special mention of the School's Green Roof as "an innovation in the architecture for learning." The Green Roof and FX Fowle were named DesignShare's recipients of a 2007 Merit Award—one of only seven recipients worldwide to receive the award. In fact, the Green Roof has attracted international attention and acclaim, with architects and educators coming from as far away as Japan, Brazil, Italy, Ireland, and Great Britain to see how the school has taken a leadership position in green architecture and sustainability. Between 1914 and 1922, natural rubber prices fluctuated between $0.115 and $1.02 per pound for several reasons. One reason is a blight that affected rubber trees in Brazil that reduced productivity and caused British and Dutch (Netherlands) rubber producers to start new plantations in Malaya (British Malaya) and in the Dutch East Indies. '''Estádio Vivaldo Lima''', usually known by its nickname '''Vivaldão''', was a multi-purpose stadium in Manaus, Brazil. It was formerly used mostly for football (football (soccer)) matches.
