In the 1985. USSR had 1% of foreign debt to GDP ratio. And all that after US – Saudi arranged fall of the oil prices and sabotaged its efforts in Afghanistan.

Dont be stupid.

If traitor and saboteur gorbachev never came along today USSR wouldve been with few modification concerning its heavy and light production 2nd world power. With Comecon still existing it wouldve been possibly even on par with EU and US.

gorbachev and his belazheva mobsters were wise only concerning oligarchs and their own pockets.

Please do not be stupid.

I’d lived in the USSR for 30 years and I tell you from my experience — my home town looked exactly like these photos, clean, tidy, sunny , no hobos, no gangs, no goddamn graffitti.

You’ve been brain-washed. Admit it and let go of the Cold War propaganda.

Soviet experience may not have been 100% successful but it had its successes and it was a good first experimentation. A lot of lessons learned. The key is not to repeat the same mistakes the next time and render the socialism a bit more practical.

An unfortunate consequence of the cold war, his parents, and really most of the people he’s ever known or loved built up a mental image of Russian people that is both extremely stereotypical and vehemently defended. He is not of sound mind, and unfortunately came here to spout bullshit and rhetoric that’s several decades old.

Russians are great people, I admire you all, I wish you the best in your future endeavors, and please ignore the blowhard Americans that seek to undermine the efforts of the rest of us.

Kindest Regards,
America

Oh! I didn’t know that! LOL!! See, EVERY cCuntry has problems. NONE is exceptional. So?

As somebody told you, don’t get the Chinese angry; you depend on them, and spin that as you wish, that won’t change for a while.

I remember thinking something along those lines, that the country had held together through thick and thin, and that it would be all right in a few years. That was back in the autumn of 1991, and the rest is history. (atleast its one part of history that YOU would know all about, forget that you know shyte about the years that came before it)

Doesn’t matter that the economy grew, living standards increased and progress came in.

“They were duped into living under communism”. They chose “communism”, or atleast one version of it. In case you didn’t know, the Red Army won the civil war, not because of its military geniuses, but because it had overwhelming manpower. And in case thats too hard for you to process, that manpower was provided by the “Russian peoples”, who according to you were duped.

“All things in USSR was not bad” Well, atleast you’re making progress.

“the government sucked.” True, that.

Yes America has it’s problems, not the first time, won’t be the last. But we’ve overcome them thus far, unlike oh say the USSR. ;)

USSR was rotten from the head down. It’s not the Russian peoples fault. They were duped into living under communism and by the time they realized what a mistake that was it was already too late. All things in USSR was not bad, but the government sucked.

“Communism was always rosey red flavored in those LIFE pictorials of USSR.” Funny coming from a guy thats convinced that everything about the USSR was bad. While you accuse Life of showing the USSR in a rosey red flavor, you on the other hand are so determined to shoot down anything that shows the USSR in a good light.

It was an illusion and everybody who said that loud was sanctioned. If there would have been no revolution, Russia, including Belarus and Ukraine, would now be among the most prosperous nations in the world and not on the same level like Mexico, depending on natural resources. And yes, Russia would have even been able to afford a welfare state to level out the evils of capitalism it not endures. Again, thanks to socialism.

When workers were tired from labor they could go to a sanatorium. Parents with all incomes could send their children to a pioneer camp. None of this is universally true in the United States. Many people live a dreadful life in the harsh confines of capitalism in its cruelest form.
