    AN account of the war-time activities of the Ukrainian Academy of Sciences has recently been received from the U. S. S. R. Early in the War the Academy was transferred to the interior of the country, where it resumed work. It was faced with complex problems which had to be tackled at short notice, in particular the readjustment of its entire scientific activities to meet the requirements of national defence and an expanding production programme. At the present time a large part of the Academy's work relates to aircraft and tank construction. Comprehensive studies are being made of the power resources of the Urals and Bashkiria, where new war industries have sprung up.
