Establishing a Computer Industry in the Soviet Socialist Republic of Belarus

Abstract : Created in the late 1950s in Minsk, for several years the factory for the production of computers occupied a leading position in the Former Soviet Union by the number of general-purpose computers produced.  For many years, the Minsk Plant at GK Ordzhonikidze produced about seventy percent of all computers manufactured in the Union. This paper highlights the activities undertaken by the leadership of the Belarusian Republic that contributed to this production.  It illustrates the basic technical specifications of computers developed by the Minsk computer factory that includes the Minsk-1, the Minsk-2, theMinsk-22, the Minsk-23, and the Minsk-32 machines. This paper also shows the timing of their development, the number of units produced, and the names of the main developers.
