Information about the loss of archival documents

The Turkmen Republic State Breeding Centre and Ashkhabad Regional State Breeding Centre founded in mid-1975 were situated in the same building. In 1976 M.D. Cherkezova and T.N. Riabova arrived at the State Breeding Centre. From the store in the basement they brought out a plywood box containing archive documents, books etc which they loaded into a car and took them away. I heard about this from V.I. Glushenko - Chief Breeding Specialist of the Ashkhabad Regional Selection Centre. I was working that day, unloading chaff from a lorry. Later on I asked M.D. Cherkezova "Why did you take away in my abscence the box with the documents on horse breeding" and she replied that the box contained some of her own books which she took away.
