History

The Soviet Union

1920s

The Soviet Union was established December 30, 1922. It consisted of 15 Soviet Republics. With an area of 22,402,200 square kilometres (8,649,500 sq mi), the Soviet Union was the world's largest state. Covering a sixth of the Earth's land surface, its size was comparable to that of North America. The Soviet Union was a communist(single-party) state with all of its economy and government centralize. The Communist Party of the Soviet Union(UPSU), is the only party and is the only legal party. The Soviet Union was one of the worlds biggest superpowers.

After the Russian Revolution of 1917, the Russian Empire fell and dissolved. After the Russian Revolution of 1917, there was a struggle for power between the Bolshevik party, led by Vladimir Lenin, and the anti-communist White movement. December 1922, The Bolshevik party had won the civil war of 1922 and thus the formation of the Soviet Union.

Following the death of Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stallin stepped into power, and lead the USSR through it industrial revolution. On 1 February 1924, the USSR was recognized by the British Empire. The same year, a Soviet Constitution was approved, legitimizing the December 1922 union.

1930's

In 1933, diplomati realtion were made with the US. During the Spanish Civil War, the USSR supported the Republican Forces against the Nationalist, with the support of Nazi Germany and Facist Italy. September 1934, the Soviet Union joined the League of Nations. In late November of the same year, unable to coerce the Republic of Finland by diplomatic means into moving its border 25 kilometres (16 mi) back from Leningrad, Joseph Stalin ordered the invasion of Finland. The late 1930's lead Russia to turn to the Axis powers of the world. In 1938, the UK and France concluded the Munich Agreement, after they gealt with the Nazis, as well as the USSR. In the east, the Soviet Union won several battles with the Empire of Japan due to border control in 1938-39.

WWI

Although it has been debated whether the Soviet Union intended to invade Germany once it was strong enough, Germany itself broke the treaty and invaded the Soviet Union on 22 June 1941, starting what was known in the USSR as the "Great Patriotic War". The Red Army stopped the seemingly invincible German Army at the Battle of Moscow, aided by an unusually harsh winter. The Battle of Stalingrad, which lasted from late 1942 to early 1943, dealt a severe blow to the Germans from which they never fully recovered and became a turning point of the war.

The same year, the USSR, in fulfillment of its agreement with the Allies at the Yalta Conference, denounced the Soviet–Japanese Neutrality Pact in April 1945 and invaded Manchukuo and other Japan-controlled territories on 9 August 1945. This conflict ended with a decisive Soviet victory, contributing to the unconditional surrender of Japan and the end of World War II.

WWII

The 1941–45 period of World War II is known in Russia as the Great Patriotic War. In this conflict, which included many of the most lethal battle operations in human history, Soviet military and civilian deaths were 10.6 million and 15.9 million respectively, accounting for about a third of all World War II casualties. The full demographic loss to the Soviet peoples was even greater. The Soviet economy and infrastructure suffered massive devastation but the Soviet Union emerged as an acknowledged superpower.

Dissolution of the USSR

Between August and December, 10 republics declared their independence, largely out of fear of another coup. Also during this time, Russia began taking over what remained of the Soviet government, including the Kremlin. The final round of the Soviet Union's collapse took place following the Ukrainian popular referendum on December 1, 1991, wherein 90% of voters opted for independence. The leaders of the three principal Slavic republics (the Russian, Ukrainian and Byelorussian SSRs) agreed to meet for a discussion of possible forms of relationship, alternative to Gorbachev's struggle for a union.

After the collapse 15 nations were formed(Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Lapland, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Siberussia(Siberia), Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Uzbekistan).
