Kalinin City Poligrafkombinat of Sovnarkhoz of the RSFSR

Калининский полиграфический комбинат Московского совнархоза Верховного Совета РСФСР

The Poligrafkombinat (printing plant) of Kalinin was the printer for Sovnarkhoz RSFSR (the Regional Council of National Economy of the Russian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic). Sovnarkhoz was an economic reorganization that came about in 1957 when over 100 "economic regions" were created in the USSR to localize and reduce the inordinate role of state administered, top-down economics. The printer was located at 5 Lenin Avenue (formerly Voroshilov Street) in the city of Kalinin (Tver) northwest of Moscow.
