Printing plant named for V.M. Molotov, Moscow
Located in Moscow at 99 Iaroslavskoe Highway, the Graphic Art Printing Plant was named for Viacheslav Mikhailovich Molotov (1890-1986), Soviet Minister of Foreign Affairs. Based on Soviet-era sources, the printing plant existed at least as far back as the 1930s. During its history, the plant was a contract printer for Glavpoligrafizdat (Main Administration for Matters of Polygraphic Industry Publishing and Book Selling), and it was under the printing trusts of Soiuzpoligrafprom (All-Union Association of Printing Enterprises) and Glavpoligrafprom (Main Directorate of the Printing Industry).
