Brezhnev from the largest hydroelectric power station in Soviet Central Asia after protests from workers there, Izvestia said Tuesday. It said Brezhnev had visited Nurek only once, in 1970. The plant was named after him in 1982 when Brezhnev's name was being tagged onto towns, regions and streets all over the country.
