Zuhra Bayramkulova (Cyrillic: Зухра Абдурахмановна Байрамкулова, 30 August 1940 - 10 April 2013) was a farmer and politician from Karachay-Cherkessia.

Biography[edit]

Bayramkulova was born on 30 August 1940 in the city of Kislovodsk in the Stavropol Krai.[1] From 1956 to 1963 she held various jobs including at a cotton factory, on a construction site and as a farm worker.[1] She joined the Communist Party in 1960.[1]

Career[edit]

In 1963 she became closely involved with dairy production at the Uchkekensky State Farm in Malokarachaevsky District.[1] As a result of the developments she led at the Uchkekensky farm, Bayramkulova was awarded the title Hero of Socialist Labour with the Order of Lenin and the "Hammer & Sickle" medal.[1] These improvements included agricultural production and the implementation of a five-year-plan for the sale of agricultural products to the state.[1] She also represented the region and the state at agricultural competitions.[2] She worked at the farm for thirty years and retired in the 1990s.[3]

In 1976 she was a delegate at the 26th Congress of the CPSU.[1] From 1978 to 1984 she was Deputy to the Supreme Soviet of the USSR.[1] From 1990 she was a member of the Central Committee of the CPSU, defending the interests of Karachay-Cherkessia.[4] In 2011 she travelled to St Petersberg with Patiy Shidakova and Datka Kishaev, who were both Socialist Labour Heroes to take part in the All-Russian Congress “Labour is the basis of life”, which was held on April 18.[5]

Bayramkulova died on 10 April 2013.[2] Her funeral was attended by representatives from across the Caucasus Republics, as well as faith leaders.[2]

Legacy[edit]

On what would have been Bayramkulova's 85th birthday in 2017, Rashid Temrezov the political leader of Karachay-Cherkessia, led tributes to her life.[4] A street in her home village of Uchkeken was named after her.[2]
