Alexander Ponomarenko


   After the creation of Pakistan in 1947, the Government of Prime minister Liaquat Ali Khan realized the importance of local production of iron and steel. In 1958, Soviet premier Nikolai Bulganin offered technical and scientific assistance to Prime Minister Suhrawardy regarding the steel mills and expressing interests in establishing the country's first steel mills.


Yevgeny Petrov


   Probably there are no people among the citizens of the former Soviet Union who have not heard about the novels of Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov "The Twelve Chairs" and "The Golden Calf". The works of these authors have been translated into dozens of languages, survived a large number of reprints and have been repeatedly filmed. The authors are often perceived only in tandem, but we will try to "separate" them and stop at Eugene Petrov and his awards.
