It had five climate zones such as tundrataigasteppesdesertand mountains. Its diverse population was collectively known as Soviet people. The Soviet Union had its roots in the October Revolution of when the Bolsheviksheaded by Vladimir Leninoverthrew the Provisional Government that had earlier replaced the monarchy of the Russian Empire. They established the Russian Soviet Republic[i] beginning a civil war between the Bolshevik Red Army and many anti-Bolshevik forces across the former Empire, among whom the largest faction was the White Guard.

The Red Army expanded and helped local Communists take power, establishing sovietsrepressing their political opponents and rebellious peasants through the policies of Red Terror and War Communism. Bythe Communists had emerged victorious, forming the Soviet Union with the unification of the Russian, TranscaucasianUkrainian and Byelorussian republics.

The New Economic Policy NEPwhich was introduced by Lenin, led to a partial return of a free market and private property ; this resulted in a period of economic recovery. Following Lenin's death inJoseph Stalin came to power. Stalin suppressed all political opposition to his rule inside the Communist Party and initiated a centrally planned economy. As a result, the country underwent a period of rapid industrialization and forced collectivizationwhich led to significant economic growth, but also led to a man-made famine in — and expanded the Gulag labour camp system founded back in Stalin also fomented political paranoia and conducted the Great Purge to remove opponents of his from the Party through the mass arbitrary arrest of many people military leaders, Communist Party members and ordinary citizens alike who were then sent to correctional labor camps or sentenced to death.

On 23 Augustafter unsuccessful efforts to form an anti-fascist alliance with Western powers, the Soviets signed the non-aggression agreement with Nazi Germany.

After the start of World War IIthe formally neutral Soviets invaded and annexed territories of several Eastern European states, including eastern Poland and the Baltic states. In June the Germans invadedopening the largest and bloodiest theater of war in history.

Soviet war casualties accounted for the highest proportion of the conflict in the cost of acquiring the upper hand over Axis forces at intense battles such as Stalingrad. The territory overtaken by the Red Army became satellite states of the Eastern Bloc. Following Stalin's death ina period known as de-Stalinization and the Khrushchev Thaw occurred under the leadership of Nikita Khrushchev.

The country developed rapidly, as millions of peasants were moved into industrialized cities. The war drained economic resources and was matched by an escalation of American military aid to Mujahideen fighters. In the mids, the last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachevsought to further reform and liberalize the economy through his policies of glasnost and perestroika.

The goal was to preserve the Communist Party while reversing economic stagnation. The Cold War ended during his tenure, and in Soviet satellite countries in Eastern Europe overthrew their respective communist regimes. This led to the rise of strong nationalist and separatist movements inside the USSR as well.

Central authorities initiated a referendum —boycotted by the Baltic republics, Armenia, Georgia, and Moldova—which resulted in the majority of participating citizens voting in favor of preserving the Union as a renewed federation. It failed, with Russian President Boris Yeltsin playing a high-profile role in facing down the coup, resulting in the banning of the Communist Party. On 25 DecemberGorbachev resigned and the remaining twelve constituent republics emerged from the dissolution of the Soviet Union as independent post-Soviet states.

The USSR produced many significant social and technological achievements and innovations of the 20th century, including the world's first ministry of healthfirst human-made satellitethe first humans in space and the first probe to land on another planetVenus.

The country had the world's second-largest economy and the largest standing military in the world. Before the dissolution, the country had maintained its status as one of the world's two superpowers for four decades after World War II through its hegemony in Eastern Europe, military strength, economic strength, aid to developing countriesand scientific research, especially in space technology and weaponry.

The word sovietnik means "councillor". In the Russian Empirethe State Council which functioned from to was referred to as a Council of Ministers after the revolt of Soyuz Sovetskikh Respublik Evropy i Azii.

In addition, in the national languages of several republics, the word council or conciliar in the respective language was only quite late changed to an adaptation of the Russian soviet and never in others, e. It is written in Cyrillic alphabets.

The Soviets used the Cyrillic abbreviation so frequently that audiences worldwide became familiar with its meaning. Notably, both Cyrillic letters used have orthographically-similar but transliterally distinct letters in Latin alphabets. Because of widespread familiarity with the Cyrillic abbreviation, Latin alphabet users in particular almost always use the orthographically-similar Latin letters C and P as opposed to the transliteral Latin letters S and R when rendering the USSR's native abbreviation.

In the English-speaking world, the Soviet Union was also informally called Russia and its citizens Russians, [24] although that was technically incorrect since Russia was only one of the republics. The European portion accounted for a quarter of the country's area and was the cultural and economic center.He writes about Russian and Soviet history, military history, and military ethics.

War between Armenia and Azerbaijan. Violent protests in Kyrgyzstan. Mass demonstrations in Belarus. One common explanation for this volatility is to blame it on the Russian Federation and its inability to accept its loss of empire. Russia, it is claimed, is inciting trouble in its immediate neighborhood in order to prevent the states of the FSU from transiting towards democracy and integration with Western institutions.

Nor is Russia the only outside power involved in its near abroad. Western states have also played an active role in the region, most notably in Ukraine, while Turkey is receiving much of the blame for the fighting between Armenia and Azerbaijan.

Again, this is only partially true. The roots of instability lie within the countries of the FSU themselves. This conclusion leads to another popular explanation, namely that the primary cause of conflict in the developing world is a lack of democracy. This is said to lead to corruption, stagnation, and the dissatisfaction of the masses, which, in due course, leads to political violence.

On the surface, it sounds convincing. Deeper analysis, however, shows that this theory is rather flawed.

Kyrgyzstan is the most democratic of the states of Central Asia, while also being the poorest and by far the most politically unstable, having suffered three revolutions in 15 years. Ukraine, meanwhile, has long had far more competitive elections than its neighbors Russia and Belarus, and yet has suffered two revolutions and a civil war.

There is no obvious correlation between democracy and stability. Another lens through which to look at the problem is postcolonialism. The FSU could be seen as suffering from similar problems to former British and French colonies once they gained independence.

All too often, the democratic systems left by the colonizers rapidly collapsed in a succession of military coups, revolutions, and insurgencies. Various factors explain this: for instance, artificial borders that did not coincide with ethnic boundaries; weak state institutions; and endemic poverty. One can see a similar dynamic in the post-Soviet space.

They also lacked both a tradition of statehood and strong institutions — the primary institution that had previously held them together was the Communist Party, which no longer existed. All this mattered, and continues to matter, as government legitimacy derives from more than competitive elections. In the absence of a unifying national identity and a strong central state, legitimacy passes to sub-state entities, and society fractures. The problem that former Soviet states face is that it takes a very long time to overcome these limitations, and attempts to do so can often backfire, particularly when efforts are made to force a certain national identity on an unwilling population or at least on a population part of which is unwilling.

In such cases, discontented groups take matters into their own hands through secession, revolution, or other political action. As if this were not bad enough, the international system is simply not designed to cope with the resulting conflicts.The following is a general overview of the history of Russia during the period of Soviet domination.

The February Revolution of was spontaneous, leaderless, and fueled by deep resentment over the economic and social conditions that had prevailed in imperial Russia under Tsar Nicholas.

The countryhaving been sucked into World War Ifound the strains of fighting a modern war with a premodern political and economic system intolerable. The tsar was well-meaning but fell short as a war leader and was unable to cope with the burdens of being head of state. His wife, Alexandrameddled in government and, while encouraging her husband to be a strong tsar, sought the advice of Rasputin on matters of state. The strain of the war, complicated by the intrigues and machinations within the royal house, caused a great gulf to develop between the monarchy and educated society and between the tsar and the rest of the population.

Hardly a hand was raised in support when the imperial order collapsed in February March, New Style The key factor had been the defection of the military. Without this instrument of coercion, the tsar could not survive. Most Russians rejoiced, but a political vacuum had been created that needed immediate attention.

The Provisional Government that had been formed was to remain in office until a democratic parliament, the Constituent Assemblywas convened in January The new government was bourgeois, or middle-class, representing a tiny segment of the population. However, the sovietswhich were proliferating rapidly, did not contest the right of the bourgeoisie to rule.

As Bolshevik domination grew in PetrogradMoscowand other major cities, the soviets accepted the idea that the revolution that would give them power would take place in two stages: the bourgeois and the socialist.

How long this transition period would last was a debatable point. The Mensheviksthe moderate socialists, held that Russia had to pass through its capitalist phase before the socialist one could appear. The Bolsheviks, the radical socialists, wanted the transition period to be short. Their firebrand leader, Leninsensed that power could be seized rather easily. The government was weak, and it could not rely on the army.

With its large complement of peasants and workers in uniform, it was this group that formed the natural constituency of the socialists.

Like the Mensheviks, the Socialist Revolutionaries, the main agrarian party, did not advocate a rush to power. More than 80 percent of the population lived in the countryside, a fact that made the Socialist Revolutionaries certain to be the leading party when the Constituent Assembly was elected.

The Provisional Government was undone by war, economic collapse, and its own incompetence. Being a temporary administration, it postponed all hard decisions—what should be done about land seizures by the peasants, for example—for the Constituent Assembly. A fatal mistake by the government was its continued prosecution of the war. Middle-class politicians believed wrongly that one of the reasons for the February Revolution was popular anger at the incompetence of the conduct of the war.

Disgruntled peasant-soldiers wanted to quit the army. Industrial decline and rising inflation radicalized workers and cost the Provisional Government the needed support of the professional middle classes. Dual power prevailed. The government seemingly spoke for the country, but in reality it represented only the middle class; the soviets represented the workers and peasants. Moderate socialists—Mensheviks and Socialist Revolutionaries—dominated the Petrograd and Moscow soviets after February, but the radical Bolsheviks began to win local elections and by September had a majority in the Petrograd Soviet.

One of the turning points in the struggle for power was the attempt by Gen. Lavr Kornilovwho had been appointed commander in chief, to take control of Petrograd in August and wipe out the soviet.The joke was extremely popular in the late 80's, fell out of vogue in the 90's, and has been given new life among various online communities.
