Во время войны тысячи ростсельмашевцев уходили добровольцами на фронт, их места у станков занимали жены, сестры, дети. Цеха предприятия быстро перестраивались на выпуск военной продукции. 
Когда немецкие войска были уже на подступах к Ростову, ростсельмашевцы выпускали продукцию для фронта и одновременно возводили оборонительные сооружения и бомбоубежища. 13 октября 1941 года коллективу Ростсельмаша был дан приказ начать демонтаж оборудования и отправку его в Ташкент.

23 февраля, на 10-й день освобождения стали работать первые 33 станка Ростсельмаша. Одновременно развернулась подготовка и по выпуску военной продукции, организован ремонт танков, тракторов, автомашин. Для восстановления завода пришлось расчистить 150 тысяч кубометров завалов, уложить 21 млн. кирпичей, 37 тысяч кубометров бетона, смонтировать 8 тысяч тонн металлоконструкций, уложить 185 тысяч кубометров кровли. За короткое время было введено в действие 145 тысяч кв. м. производственных площадей.

This is an overview of Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!

Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.

Although you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.

Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).

The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.

Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)

After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.
