Sobesednik.ru recalls what events marked the last week of the calendar winter 100 years ago. Goodbye, or better - goodbye! February 25, 1921. Units of the 11th Red Army, with the participation of local communists, entered Tiflis (Tbilisi) and overthrew the Menshevik government. The entire operation of "peace enforcement" was completed in a week and a half. On the same day, the Socialist Soviet Republic of Georgia was proclaimed. On April 9, 1991, the Supreme Soviet of Georgia, headed by Zviad Gamsakhurdia, announced its secession from the USSR. As they say, goodbye, our affectionate Misha … Kronstadt does not surrender On February 28, 1921, the Kronstadt uprising (in Soviet historiography - a mutiny) of the garrison of the fortress city, the crews of the Baltic Fleet ships began. The Bolshevik policy of war communism drove the people to the extreme - both in the city and in the countryside. In February 1921, mass workers' strikes took place in Petrograd and Moscow. The garrison of the naval fortress, numbering 27 thousand people, with two battleships, powerful artillery, could sweep away the "comrades" whom it had previously been a faithful support for. If the sea were not frozen, things could have turned out differently. The Red Army men pass through the ice to Kronstadt and take the fortress on March 17. Three hundred sailors were immediately shot. More than 2 thousand of the rebels were executed by the decision of the revolutionary tribunal. They shot and then, in pursuit. What, I wonder, would the country be like if the idea of the rebels: "Soviets without Bolsheviks" came true? Miracle Insulin On March 3, 1921, the Canadian physiologist Bunting managed to obtain the hormone insulin, which was surprisingly effective in treating then-fatal disease - diabetes. A year later, the first injections were made to a seriously ill young man - successfully! In the 100 years since its inception, insulin has saved millions of lives. * * * The material was published in the publication "Interlocutor" 07-2021 under the title "100 years for lunch."
