Belitser (1903-83) to the ethnography of the Finnic-speaking peoples of the Volga-Ural region—with special attention for her works on the 1930s-60s on the production systems of the Udmurts, Komis and Mordvins, all primary sources that, in spite of their ideological postulates, preserve their significance for the anthropological study of this region.
