Russia News, Q2/40

Petrograd Post, 12 April 1940

RF Ministry of Oil announce that construction has begun on oil loading facility at Petrograd suburb of Primorsk. According to Ministry press release, this site was chosen because of its proximity to several railroad lines. This development was justified by noting that oil tanker sizes and capacities are growing rapidly, so delays in loading cargoes have significant financial impact.

Moscow Herald, 7 May 1940

Moscow mayor Nikita S. Khrushchev "cut a ribbon" opening Moscow's new subway system. This reporter was awed at artistry employed in its decoration. At present, its six stations serve only central Moscow, but plans for rapid extension into Moscow suburbs are afoot.

(OOC:, yeah, I know I never announced its start, but its about time for some of it to be complete!)
