History of computing in the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic

In 1947, the NASU Institute of Electrical Engineering was founded in Feofaniya. In 1950, the Small Electronic Calculating Machine was developed at the institute by a group of scientists under the direction of Sergey Lebedev. This was the first universally programmable electronic computer in the Soviet Union.

In 1965, at the Institute of Cybernetics of the National Academy of Science of Ukraine in Kyiv, a team of scientists under the direction of Victor Glushkov developed the MIR computer. This was followed by the MIR-1 in 1968 and the MIR-2 in 1969.
