500th Anniversary of the Tula Kremlin’s Construction

The Tula Kremlin is an outstanding monument of Russian defenсe architecture of the XVI century. Built on the Muravsky Trail – the most important strategic direction of the Crimean Tatar raids, the Kremlin for several centuries defended the southern borders of the Russian state and was the main link of the famous Great Zasechnaya line. Its history dates back to 1507, when the construction of the ‘stone city’ – the Tula fortress – was started in Tula by the decree of Grand Duke Vasily III. The construction lasted thirteen years and was completed in 1520. During its existence, the Tula Kremlin has never surrendered to the enemy. In 1552, under the walls of the Kremlin, the troops of the Crimean Khan Devlet Giray were defeated, which paved the way for the success of the famous campaign of Tsar Ivan the Terrible against Kazan. In 1607, the rebels led by Ivan Bolotnikov were defending themselves in Tula against the troops of Tsar Vasily Shuisky for more than four months.
The Tula Kremlin is a regular rectangular fortress. The monument’s architecture combines the centuries-old traditions of Russian architecture and the best achievements of Western European fortification art. A distinctive feature of the Tula Kremlin lies in its location in a low place – the floodplain of the Upa River. Active use of fortress artillery in the XVI century made it possible to build citadels in a relatively low place.
Today, the Tula Kremlin is a unique complex of historical and architectural monuments. Its ensemble, besides the walls and towers that have not undergone significant reconstruction since the XVI century, includes two former cathedrals: the Holy Dormition Cathedral (XVIII century) and the Epiphany Cathedral (XIX century), merchant rows (XIX century), and the building of the first city power plant (XX century).

Writer I.A. Bunin — 150th Anniversary of his Birth (22.10.1870)

Ivan Bunin (1870-1953) was a writer, poet and translator. He was the first Russian writer awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.
His first poem dedicated to another Russian writer Semyon Nadson was published in the literary magazine Rodina on 22 February 1887. Bunin’s debut book ‘Poems (1887-1891)’ was published in 1891 as a supplement to the Orlovsky Vestnik newspaper.
In early 1901, the poetry collection ‘Falling Leaves’ along with the translation of Henry Longfellow’s ‘The Song of Hiawatha’ brought Bunin his first Pushkin Prize (established by the Russian Academy of Sciences). In autumn 1909, the Russian Academy of Sciences awarded Bunin with the second Pushkin Prize and elected him an honorary member. However, it was his short novel ‘The Village’ (1910) that made him famous and renowned.
Bunin totally rejected the October Revolution of 1917. Together with his wife, he left Moscow and settled in Odessa in May 1918, then moved to Paris in 1920. The famous writer captured his feelings about the coup in the ‘Cursed Days’ diary, published during his emigration.
Only one poetry collection – ‘Selected Poems’ – came out during Bunin’s exile. At the same time, ten new prose works saw the light, among which ‘Rose of Jerico’, ‘Mitya’s Love’ and ‘Sunstroke’.
Bunin spent 1927-1933 writing his most prominent work – the novel ‘The Life of Arseniev’. In 1933, the writer won the Nobel Prize for Literature ‘for his talent to truthfully and artistically recreate in prose the essence of the Russian character’.

What is the connection between Bunin and the Turgenev museum or Turgenev himself?

There is no connection.
The museum in the city of Oryol is named after the writer Turgev.

100th Anniversary of the Foundation of the Republic of Mari El

The Mari (formerly named the Cheremis) are indigenous people of the Republic; they formed as a community by the end of the first millennium AD. At the same time, they fell under the influence of the Khazar Khaganate, then under the Volga Bulgaria, the Golden Horde, and finally they became the subjects of the Kazan Khanate. For a long time the homeland of the Mari was a battleground between the West and the East, the Slavic and the Turkic peoples. In the middle of the 16th century, the Mari region was incorporated into the Russian State. Since then, its history has been intertwined with the history of Russia, Russians and other peoples of the country.
On 4 November 1920, the Mari Autonomous Area was established. On 5 December 1936, it was reorganised into the Mari Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (the Mari ASSR) in accordance with the Soviet Constitution. On 22 December 1990, the Supreme Soviet of the Mari ASSR approved the Declaration of the State Sovereignty of the Republic. On 22 March 1992, the Mari El Republic, among other constituent territories of the Russian Federation, signed the Treaty of Federation. On 8 July 1992, the republic was officially named the Mari El Republic.
Today the Republic is a tourist gem with its picturesque and crystal clear lakes. The lakeshores host tourist camping sites, sports and recreation camps and retreat centres. Numerous mineral springs mostly coming from the valleys of the Ilet and Yushut rivers are used for medical purposes in recreation and retreat centres and hospitals. Mariy Chodra, the national park located on the Maple Mountain, is the noteworthy nature reserve area. The pilgrimage tours of holy sites (monasteries, churches and sacred springs) and religious groves are always popular among visitors.

The 75th Anniversary of the Nuclear Industry of Russia

2020 marks the 75th anniversary of the Russian nuclear industry.
On 20 August 1945, it was decided to establish First Chief Directorate under the Council of People’s Commissars of the Soviet Union to manage the nuclear project. The Soviet nuclear industry was created to protect the country and the whole world from new global conflicts.
After the nuclear shield had ensured the country’s safety, scientists and engineers were able to put nuclear power to use for peaceful purposes. Our country was the first to build a nuclear power station, a nuclear ice-breaker and a tokamak (a device to study thermonuclear fusion).
These days, State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom, established in 2007, is among the Top-10 Russian companies. It operates in 50 countries on 5 continents. Russian nuclear power stations cover nearly a fifth of the country’s energy requirements without any greenhouse gas pollution.
The nuclear industry still remains at the forefront of research and technology. Rosatom not only builds innovative new generation power units but also develops the most promising areas, such as supercomputers, composite materials, additive technologies, digital products, wind power, and radiation medicine.
Ahead of time, the nuclear industry works for the good of the country and people.

Morozko

‘Morozko’, a traditional Slavic fairy tale, is based on the idea of importance of such human qualities as kindness, industriousness and obedience.
An evil woman wishes to get rid of her kind and hard-working stepdaughter and orders her husband to take her deep into the forest and leave her there to die. In the woods, the girl meets Morozko. She is polite and kind to him, and in response he gives her furs and jewellery. The stepmother, seeing the riches that her stepdaughter has received, sends her own daughter into the forest, but she is rude and unkind to Morozko, for which she is punished.

2020. Commemorative and Investment Coins of the Bank of Russia
« Reply #71 on: October 27, 2020, 07:10:52 AM »
Looking at the size of this thread (may still be work in progress), I am quite sure that Russia issues highest number of commemorative coins (circulating base metal + surcharged collector coins) every year and no other country will even come close to it. France, Poland too issue numerous coins every year but Russia is a next level example indeed! :o

Centenary of the Foundation of the Udmurt Republic

According to the most ancient archaeological monuments, the territory of Udmurtia was populated during the Mesolithic period (8–5 thousand years BC). In the following archaeological periods, the Western Urals saw a differentiation of the ancient Finno-Ugric people. In early Iron Age (800–300 years BC), the Ananyino culture of the ancestors of the current Udmurts and Komi formed in the Kama River region (Prikamye).
Joining Volga Bulgaria, the first state in Lower Prikamye, in the 10th century caused a significant influence on the ancient Udmurts. Since the 13th century, the Southern Udmurts were under the influence of the Golden Horde and, after that, the Khanate of Kazan. During the Middle Ages, the settlement of Idnakar was the largest centre of craft, cult and administration of the Northern Udmurts who remained independent.
The first Russian settlements were founded on the Vyatka River in the 12–13th centuries. The Northern Udmurtia became a part of the young Russian state. By 1557, after Ivan the Terrible had occupied Kazan, the process of the Udmurts’ joining Russia was completed.
In 1920, the Udmurt Autonomous Region was established. In 1934, it transformed into the Udmurt Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic and was renamed as the Udmurt Republic in 1991.
The 20th century saw Udmurtia becoming a major military industrial centre of the USSR and Russia owing to its beneficial geopolitical location. Even today, the national structure of state and the military character of the region’s industry heavily shape the historical, social, economic and cultural identity of the Udmurt Republic.
