Documents of the Soviet Era

Federal Archives AgencyThe Federal Archives Agency launched a digital project “Documents of the Soviet Era”


The history of the Soviet Union and the Soviet era remains one of the central themes in world historiography. The goal of Russian archivists is to provide access to the sources of this complex and understudied period of history in electronic form. The site “Documents of the Soviet Era” provides access to materials which are crucial for understanding the Soviet era including databases and digitized copies of publicly available archival documents stored in federal archives, as well as copies of relevant documentary publications and handbooks. The materials which are already available include about 300,000 electronic copies of documents from the Politburo (1919–1932) and Stalin (1866–1996) collections of the Russian State Archive of Socio-Political History.
