Soviet Union in 1985

Posted on March 13, 2016 by tim

Tram in Irkutsk.

The all mighty KGB headquarters in Moscow with Dzerzhinsky monument which was demolished later (and in 2016 the case opened to “investigate the destruction of Dzerzhinsky monument”). Weird.

    It looks so serene. But if it was really so nice, why was there a revolution?

    • alex kom says:

      Because everything was corrupt. Everything was state controlled. You could not buy anything in store. You could be jailed at any time for any made up reason. If you were male, you had to serve in army for 2 years.

      What you see on the pictures here is how 5% of the country was, 95% was a big dump with no roads.

      Look at North Korea, it is also very serene looking and really so nice.

      “Revolution”? Nobody was killed in a “revbolution” when the Soviet Union disappeared. But maybe there was a bloody one in your far away, alternate dimension.

      • DAS666 says:

        Wrong. There were a lot of people killed in the revolution that led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.

        • Agent Mulder says:

          @”DAS666
          …”a lot of people killed in the revolution…”. Really? How many? Write down your number and reference, or don’t bother to write back. Butthurt doesn’t count.

    • The Reader says:

      The profound change you call “revolution”, was actually very peaceful by all standards.

      The profound changes you call “revolution”, were actually very peaceful by all standards. But if you want to keep showing your ignorance and prejudice, no problem for me.

    Quite a lot of Tbilisi here. The outlandish concrete monument about half way through was erected during the reign of Andropov and was nicknamed “Andropov’s Ears” by Tbilisans. It was demolished about 10 years ago.

    1985 was a magical year, since Seven Days in Sammystown was released.

    And that was a special album indeed.

    Beautiful Holy Russia, over 1000 years of history and struggle under different Czars, different governments under the Czars. So what is communism, a puny 70 year pimple in the timeline of Russian history? What matters – the Russian people will always survive regardless of what government system exists.

  9. Slaven says:

    Garbage gorbachev betrayed and destroyed USSR. He should have been hanged on the Red Square and the planed dissolution of USSR should have been annuled. Too bad the part of KGB was also in this scam whti CIA and the traitor gorbachev. May he rot in hell forever.

    Gorbachev or any singular person could not have destroyed the Soviet Union. That is foolishness to believe that, too simplistic.

    It doesn’t matter if Gorbachev or Mickey Mouse was in the seat of General Secretary. Gorbachev was just one man and just one man could not do that.

    The Soviet Union’s economy and industry were very neglected for decades, due to excess waste and focus on military but neglecting the common people, the domestic economy.

    As Mr. Putin recently said, Lenin lit a time bomb under Russia, bringing Communism to Russia. This is why Mr. Putin has no interest in reviving the dead idea of Communism in Russia. He knows it is a failure and it is better to let Russian citizens themselves govern their lives.
