V. A. TSYBULSKY. The U.S.S.R. Nizhegorodsk Fair

The article sheds light on the role assigned to the U.S.S.R. Nizhegorodsk Fair in promoting intensive trade relations between town and country, between socialist industry and agriculture, as well as with the Eastern countries. The Fair served as a channel for directing a rational flow of goods from industry to the multimillion peasant masses; it helped to promote economic cooperation and emulation between trading partners from diverse social sectors of the national economy. It reflected to a certain extent the state of the country's domestic market, ascertained its capacity and requirements, facilitated state trade organizations to form contacts with consumers' cooperatives and privately-owned trading establishments, exerted a regulating influence on the development of commodity circulation and the movement of prices. By 1930, when the system of centralized planning embraced practically the whole sphere of exchange in the country, the socio-economic role of the Fair had been exhausted, and it was liquidated.

R. G. SKRYNNIKOV. The Preparation and Start of Yermak's Siberian Expedition

The article aims at defining more precisely the time of the first Siberian expedition undertaken by the Cossacks headed by Yermak. Drawing on his close study of 16th- century documents and new archive records, the author convincingly proves that, contrary to the generally accepted view, the campaign could not take place in 1582. A more accurate definition of the chronology of the campaign and the existence of more detailed information on its participants and organizers make it necessary to reconsider many important questions linked with the history of Yermak's Siberian expedition.
