Dates in History
1922—The First Soviet All-Union Conference adopts the Declaration of the formation of the USSR.

1905—Daniil Harms, writer, is born.
His poems and short stories are full of grotesque and irony and dont fit in the world of socialist realism, which is the only acceptable form of art at that time in the USSR. He lives in poverty, and dies in prison being incarcerated for "defeatist utterances". Now his works are considered to be the precursor of the absurd literature.

1371—Vasily I, Great Prince of Moscow and Vladimir, is born.
Vasily is the eldest son of Dmitry Donskoy. He carries on uniting Russian lands: he incorporated Nizhny Novgorod, Murom, Vologda, Gorodets, Tarusa, and Meshchera into Russia, but let Lithuanian Prince Vitovt have Smolensk. Two of the most famous Russian icon painters Pheophan Grek and Andrey Rublev lived and created at that time.
