The Einstein-Maxwell field equations in the presence of one Killing vector are shown to possess covariance under an eight-parameter group of linear substitutions in the field variables.
The equations for a gravitational field in the presence of a two-parameter Abelian group of isometries (e.g., stationary axisymmetric fields or cylindrical waves) are shown to be equivalent to the construction of a connection (with vanishing curvature) on a principal bundle with an appropriate structure group.

Thousands were buried in a cemetery discovered a decade ago in the village of Levashevo, but relatives of victims had long believed that Stalin's executioners took most of the political prisoners to the Rzhevsk army range in Toksovo, just north of Leningrad, where they were shot and buried.
