Ministry of Heavy Machine Building (Soviet Union)

The Ministry of Heavy Machine Building (Mintyazhmash; Russian: Министерство тяжёлого машиностроения СССР) was a government ministry in the Soviet Union.

History

The statute of the People's Commissariat of Heavy Machine Building was confirmed by a decree of the Council of People's Commissars on 23 April 1939.[1] On 5 June 1941, when the People's Commissariat of Machine-Tool Building was organized, it was given jurisdiction over a number of main administrations formerly belonging to the People's Commissariat of Heavy Machine Building.[1]

With the reorganization of the Council of People's Commissars into the Council of Ministers in 1946, the People's Commissariat of Heavy Machine Building became the Ministry of Heavy Machine Building.[1]
