1920—Soviet Governament officially abolishes death penalty.
But people are still being executed.

1863—Constantine Stanislavsky, theatrical director, actor, is born.
Stanislavsky invents a new acting method, which involves actor psychologically putting him(her)self in place of his character. His method becomes classical within artistic circles throughout the world. But in Russia he is probably even more famed for his utterance I dont believe!, which refers to an actor playing his part so bad that his character doesnt resemble anything of the character in play or script.

In 1902 one of the first wind tunnels is created under his direction, and in 1904 the first European Institute of Aerodynamics is established also under his direction. In 1920 Institute of Red Air Forces Engineers is set up, which becomes Zhukovsky Air-Force Engineer Academy in 1922.
