Putin launched a campaign to rein in the oligarchs and, per his policy of the so-called national champions, to establish state control in strategic companies. He launched an attack against what he saw as mismanagement and personal pillaging of state assets. After coming to power, Putin immediately fired Chernomyrdin from his position as the chairman of the company's board and used the stock owned by the state to vote out Vyakhirev. The two men were replaced by Dmitry Medvedev and Alexei Miller, who had previously worked with Putin in Saint Petersburg. Goldman, pp.104-105 Putin's actions were aided by shareholder activism by Hermitage (Hermitage Capital Management) CEO William Browder (Bill Browder) and former Russian finance minister Boris Fyodorov (Boris Fedorov). Miller and Medvedev were assigned the task of stopping the asset-stripping, but also to regain lost possessions. By denying Itera access to Gazprom's pipelines, Miller almost forced Itera to bankruptcy. As a result, Itera's management agreed to sell the stolen assets back to Gazprom.

rich fishing

Saint Petersburg–Priozersk railroads, hosts numerous dachas. Due to its size, favorable climate, rich fishing waters and proximity to Saint Petersburg, the capital of the Russian Empire, the Karelian Isthmus became the wealthiest part of Finland once the industrial revolution had gained momentum in the 19th century. The railroads Saint Petersburg–Vyborg–Riihimäki (Saint Petersburg–Riihimäki railroad) (1870), Vyborg–Hiitola–Sortavala (Vyborg–Joensuu railroad) (1893), Saint Petersburg–Kexholm–Hiitola (Saint Petersburg–Hiitola railroad) (1917) crossed the isthmus, contributing to its economic development. By the end of the 19th century the nearby areas along the Saint Petersburg–Vyborg section had become popular place of summer resort for wealthy Saint Petersburgers. The only motorway on the isthmus is the recently completed E18 "Scandinavia" (European route E18) (M10) going from Saint Petersburg through Vyborg and Vaalimaa. *eastern part of the Saint Petersburg-Riihimäki railroad *Saint Petersburg – Sestroretsk - Beloostrov *southern part of the Vyborg-Joensuu railroad *southern part of the Vyborg-Joensuu railroad *Saint Petersburg – Vsevolozhsk – Ladozhskoye Ozero *Saint Petersburg – Vsevolozhsk – Petrokrepost – Nevskaya Dubrovka *Saint Petersburg – Vsevolozhsk – Ladozhskoye Ozero *Saint Petersburg – Vsevolozhsk – Petrokrepost – Nevskaya Dubrovka *Vyborg (Vyborg railway station) - Veschevo (earlier also through Zhitkovo to Michurinskoye (Michurinskoye, Leningrad Oblast)) Vaganova was a student at the Imperial Ballet School in Saint Petersburg, graduating in 1897 to dance professionally with the school's parent company, the Imperial Russian Ballet.

Biography Born in the Oryol province of Russia within a middle class family, Andreyev originally studied law in Moscow and in Saint Petersburg. He became police-court reporter for a Moscow daily, performing the routine of his humble calling without attracting any particular attention. At this time he wrote poetry and made a few efforts to publish it but was refused by most publishers. In 1898 his first short story, "Bargamot and Garaska" ("Баргамот и Гараська"), was published in the "Kurier" newspaper in Moscow. This story came to the attention of the burgeoning Maxim Gorky who recommended that Andreyev concentrate on his literary work. Andreyev eventually gave up his law practice, fast becoming a literary celebrity, and the two writers remained friends for many years to come. Through Gorky, Andreyev became a member of the Moscow Sreda (Sreda (literary group)) literary group, and published many of his works in Gorky's Znanie (Znanie (publishing company)) collections.

Life Born in Paris, Clapeyron studied at the École polytechnique and the École des Mines, before leaving for Saint Petersburg in 1820 to teach at the ''École des Travaux Publics''. He returned to Paris only after the Revolution of July 1830, supervising the construction of the first railway line connecting Paris to Versailles (Versailles, Yvelines) and Saint-Germain (Saint-Germain-en-Laye). He married Mélanie Bazaine, daughter of Pierre-Dominique Bazaine (mathematician and bridge and canal engineer), and older sister of Pierre-Dominique (Adolphe) Bazaine (railway engineer) and Francois Achille Bazaine (Marshal of France). His most prominent position in France put him in place to create many of the significant monuments of the period, and to set the tone for the restrained French Late Baroque architectural style, somewhat chastened by academic detailing, that was influential as far as Saint Petersburg and even echoed in Constantinople. At the same time, the size of support staff in his official bureaucratic position has often raised criticisms that he was less than directly responsible for the work that was constructed under his name, criticisms that underestimate the discipline control within a large, classically-trained studio. thumb right 200px Château de Dampierre (File:Dampierre en Yvelines Chateau 02.jpg): a domesticated version of Baroque for a patron in Louis XIV's inner circle During the 19th century, the arrival of the Moscow-Riga and Saint Petersburg-Warsaw railways (rail transport) transformed Rēzekne from a sleepy country town into an important city with two stations.

architectural quality

the architecture of the country was dominated by plain functionalism (Functionalism (architecture)). This helped somewhat to resolve the housing problem, but created the large massives of buildings of low architectural quality, much in contrast with the previous bright architecture. After the end of the Soviet Union the situation improved. Many churches demolished in the Soviet times were rebuilt, and this process continues along with the restoration of various historical buildings destroyed in World War II. As for the original architecture, there is no more any common style in modern Russia, though International style (International style (architecture)) has a great influence. thumb left 200px Grand Cascade in Peterhof Palace (File:PeterhofGrandCascade.JPG), nicknamed ''Russian Versaille'', a popular tourist destination in Saint Petersburg.
