  1. grigori aleksandrovich potemkin

    Grigori Aleksandrovich Potemkin was a prominent Russian statesman, military leader, and favorite of Catherine the Great. He was born in 1739 and died in 1791. Potemkin served as governor-general of several regions and helped expand the Russian Empire, particularly southward towards the Black Sea. He is perhaps best known for the myth of the 'Potemkin villages,' where supposedly fake settlements were built to impress visiting officials and disguise the poor condition of the Russian military and its territories.
