The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, abbreviated to USSR or the Soviet Union, was a nominally socialist nation state on the Eurasian continent that existed between 1922 and 1991 with Moscow as its capital. [1] The separate Soviet Republics gradually became independent, meaning that the successor nation state, Russia is somewhat smaller in size.

Cold War

The USSR was referred to as a 'superpower', often portrayed as locked in ideological and military competition with the other nation state to which that epithet was applied, the United States. Both were the leading producers of weapons of mass destruction.

Eastern Europe“The great risk is that of explosion. Prediction is notoriously difficult, and in Eastern Europe more than anywhere. But on a sober assessment one can see a serious possibility of some kind of an explosion of popular discontent in four out of the six East European states over the next few years: Romania, Poland, Hungary and Czechoslovakia. (Some analysts would add the GDR). No one can predict what course such an explosion would take, nor how the Soviet Union would react to it. A direct military intervention could spell the end of 'perestroika' not just in the country concerned but in the Soviet Union itself.”1989
