              Ha, ha. Yes, it’s clear that it’s not the registry office of Semenovka. Simply, the concept of Ukrainian, roughly speaking, Lenin and the Germans invented. And until 1917, Russian people appeared in documents as Russian.

                Of course, one can disagree with the Germans. But do you argue with Lenin? He is a monument.
                However, it became curious from this point of view. I looked at the pre-revolutionary metric books. As a rule, they were led by priests, recorded the births and their parents by name, place of residence and religion, and also recorded themselves, godparents, and witnesses. Sometimes the interpretation of the correct spelling of names and surnames was given. AND no indication of nationality came across. request The only information about circumcision in Odessa metric books. hi Apparently, Lenin really came up with the idea of ​​writing down nationality in documents.

                Although the Soviet birth certificates of 1941 are also graphs Nationality did not see.

        Why? Everything is simple
        In 1998, Ukraine began dismantling its strategic bombers to allocated US funds under the Nunn-Lugar program.

        In 1999-2000, an agreement was reached by which Ukraine transferred eight Tu-160 and three Tu-95 to Russia in exchange for writing off part of the debt for gas purchases. The Tu-160 remaining in Ukraine was disposed of, except for one machine, which was reduced to an operational state and is in the Poltava Museum of Long-Range and Strategic Aviation. The last of the remaining strategic aviation systems of the Tu-160 Air Force of Ukraine was destroyed 2 February 2001 year.

          An agreement was reached earlier. Just in April - May 1999, we flew to assess the technical condition of these machines in Uzin and Priluki. After our conclusion, an agreement was signed. In addition to the aircraft themselves, they also included missiles for them, and separate equipment. And the selection of all of the above took time in late 99th - 2000th year.
          And the fact that the Americans cut the Tu-160 (and Tu-95MS), it is a purely Ukrainian trait - they will sell their mother for money and mother. Only now the Tu-160 cut the latest series, and we got the planes from the first - this is a different story. Thank God that with the Tu-95MS we still managed to squeeze the aircraft of the latest series.

        The decision to manufacture the new Tu-160 was made last year. When could this interfere with modernization? And also
        In 1997, it was decided to restore production in Kazan, but the intention only resulted in the completion of two backlogs - one car was commissioned in 2000, the second in 2008. It is curious that closer to the completion of the construction of the extreme aircraft, the military and the leadership of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) reiterated the resumption of the Tu-160 program: KAPO im. Gorbunov (the so-called KAZ) was supposed to produce one Tu-160 every two years and eventually bring their group to 30 (this statement coincided with the resumption of regular strategic Russian flights to patrol remote areas of the world). But again, no continuation. (Http://universe-tss.su/main/flot/18365-aviazavod-s-blekd

        In this case, this could interfere with the timing of the modernization of the headboard.
        Although I certainly will not hide it, I sincerely hope that the Kazan citizens have clandestinely prepared everything for mass production. Moreover, they are already riveting. hi
