Quite right fuser! How did you find the answer?

Georgy Zhukov recalled that on 1 September 1941 he was summoned to the telegraph machine Poskrebyshev and conveyed the request of Stalin on the need to stay in the GHQ. At that Zhukov said the following: "Just now received adverse information about 211th Division, which operated in the area Roslavl The division moved back for 5-6 kilometers and has created a disadvantage for the 149th Infantry Division. Due to the complexity of the situation, I would like to leave on at night to the site of the 211th Division and there to restore order. "

Your turn next!

Thanks. It took lots of googling and translator use. I already found him, but dropped him off because he had previously commanded Cavalry Corps. Then after all returned to him.

Back to 1941...

To build the Rzhev-Viaz'ma line and the Mozhaisk line of defenses, in addition to engineer and contruction units, wide use was made of local population, including residents of Moscow.
But who built the fortifications in the area of Olenino?

Well I understood Lopukhovsky so that prisoners did the actual work under the 4th NKVD supervision. :roll:

Hopefully googling is accepted... :)

My found: Ludmila Pavlyuchenko...?

Soviet sniper with 309 kills, invited to the White House by Eleanor Roosevelt.

Initially I thought you meant Molotov in May 1942...

Cheers,
Sean

A tank design bureau which made various prototypes but most of them never saw the daylight except for one design (I won't say the name) of which total 12000 were produced. Oh and it was here that Mikhail Koshkin, the famous designer of T34 first worked and gained his experience, during the purges, this bureau was gutted.

Identify this bureau.
