Ukraine 1956-1964

The policy of Destralinization, in Ukraine as elsewhere in the Soviet Union, resulted in a liberalization of the political atmosphere. People enjoyed a higher degree of personal freedom.
The policy of industrialization continued, converting the hitherto agricultural regions of Dniepropetrovsk and Zaporizhzhia into industrial centers. Soviet economic planners eyed at production statistics and spent little thought on environmental and safety concerns.
The living standard of the Ukrainian citizens, compared to earlier years, had increased. Ukrainians, with other Soviet citizens, took pride in the successes of the Soviet space program and Soviet Olympic athletes/ teams.
