Activities of the Republican Trust Ukrsilprombud in Sumy Region during Post-war time (1947–1954)

The article is devoted to analyzing the characteristic features and peculiarities of the organization and functioning of the “Ukrsilprombud” trust, as well as its role in the recovery and development of the economy and infrastructure in Sumy region in the post-war period. The Republican Construction and Assembly Trust “Ukrsilprombud” existed during 1947-1954 and was an economic unit subordinated to the Ministry of Agriculture of the Ukrainian SSR. The trust specialized in constructing machine-tractor stations, machine-tractor workshops and other objects that were supposed to ensure the mechanization of agriculture. The research highlights the formation and development of the organizational structure of the trust. The regional division of “Ukrsilprombud” — the Sumy Regional Construction and Installation Office — operated in Sumy oblast. The level of financing of this enterprise and the state of its provision of building materials and qualified personnel are characterized. It was revealed that a lagging pace, non-fulfilment of plans, violation of the order and unevenness of work in the districts of Sumy region characterized the trust’s participation in reconstruction. The leading cause of these phenomena was the ineffectiveness of the system of organizing the process at both the state and regional levels, manifested by insufficient funding, a lack of construction materials, a shortage and low qualification of workers. Sometimes the negative impact on the productivity of construction organizations was caused by a subjective factor — negligence and corruption on the part of managers. The research is based on materials from the funds of the Central State Archives of Supreme Bodies of Power and Government of Ukraine and the State Archive of Sumy Region, as well as information from the local press issued in the late 1940s — early 1950s.
