world radio day.

Commemorative date of the United Nations, established by the resolution of the General Conference of UNESCO on October 19, 2011 at the initiative of Spain. The date was not chosen by chance: on February 13, 1946, UN Radio went on the air for the first time.

The theme of World Radio Day, which will be celebrated for the twelfth time this year, is “Radio and Peace”.

80 years ago (1943) during the Great Patriotic War, Soviet troops liberated Novocherkassk.

The city was captured by Nazi troops in July 1942. The occupation of Novocherkassk lasted more than 200 days.

During the Rostov offensive operation of the Southern Front, which took place from January 1 to February 18, 1943, Novocherkassk was liberated by soldiers of the 2nd Guards Army.

105 years ago (1918) the Council of People’s Commissars of the RSFSR issued a decree “On labor exchanges”.

The first labor exchange, the famous Morozov Labor Exchange, was organized in Moscow by the Khitrovsky Guardianship of the Poor in 1901. Subsequently, 6 more permanent and several of their temporary branches were created.

The first law on labor exchanges, adopted in August 1917, provided for the opening of such institutions in cities with a population of at least 50 thousand people. The exchanges were supposed to register the demand and supply of labor, as well as provide mediation services for hiring, keep statistics and systematize information about the labor market.

On February 13, 1918, the Soviet government issued a decree “On labor exchanges”. They were established in cities with a population of at least 20 thousand people, and were under the jurisdiction of trade unions. The document also provided for the creation of the All-Russian Center for Labor Exchanges.
