USSR in Construction, No 4, 1933

White Russian Soviet Socialist Republic

White Russia is what we now call Belorus, ‘byelo’ means white in Russian, so this makes sense.  One of the founding republics of the USSR, and still around today, without many significant changes from its Stalinist, command economy past.

Nice bit of Constructivist architecture here.

A. G. Chervyakov, President of the Central Executive Committee of  White Russia.
