UPP DVOU (Printing Industry Management/State Publishing Association of Ukraine)
The UPP (Printing Industry Management) managed the printers in cities around the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic carrying out jobs for the DVOU (State Publishing Association of Ukraine). In 1930, a resolution by the Ukrainian Central Committee created the DVOU making it the central administration for publications and literature distribution in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. The DVOU replaced the DVU (State Publishing of Ukraine) that had been in existence since 1922.
