In 1921, the Central Commission for Improvement of Scientists’ Living Conditions (TsEKUBU) was created under the Council of People’s Commissars of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic (RSFSR). The living conditions of Konstantin Eduardovich Tsiolkovsky, one of the most prominent scientists, the founder of the Soviet astronautics (according to encyclopedias), were improved in the very same year.
