Nina Lugovskaya, Ниночка Луговская, was Moscow teenager who lived under Stalin in the 1930’s in USSR. Her diaries, which have recently been discovered in NKVD/KGB files, are being likened to those of Anne Frank. When state secret police ransacked Nina’s home and discovered the journals, they were used as evidence to convict her whole family of treason and they were all sent to Siberian gulag for seven years. This is why the diaries have remained in the KGB files until recently. Nina’s diaries have also been published in English.

This small prototype, intended to be the personal field vehicles of collective farm chairmen, demonstrated impressive off-road capabilities when it was built in 1955. It never saw mass production, but it did aid in perfecting both the Москвич-402 and its off-road offspring, the Москвич-410.
