Abstract : Following a general introduction, our first annual technical report is in two parts. The first part, is an overall description of the data that we have acquired so far. We briefly characterize the status of our data collection efforts for twenty four separate areas of the former Soviet Union. For those areas for which we have significant data, we give Tables and Figures characterizing our data. The second part, prepared and laid out as an independent stand alone paper, is a discussion of the numbers of chemical explosions that are misidentified as earthquakes, in bulletins of natural seismicity (earthquake lists) for the territory of the former Soviet Union.
