In what year did telephone numbers in Moscow become seven-digit (cm)?

• Seven-digit numbers in Moscow appeared at the very beginning of the 1960s; for some time six-digit (old) and seven-digit (new) numbers existed in parallel. In this case, 6-digit numbers could begin with the digits 2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9. All new 7-digit numbers started with 1. (as now, the two-digit emergency numbers began with 0).

Since 1968, a 6 has been added to all 2-digit numbers in front, and as a result, all numbers have become 7-digit.

Until about 1967, instead of the first digit in 6-digit numbers, and instead of the first two digits in 7-digit numbers, letters were used, then (even before the transition to 7-digit numbers) they began to officially record only in numbers.
