32 thoughts on “How and Why Did The Soviet Union Collapse

  1. 2:20 "By the 1970's the Soviet people noticed the rise of the political elite who lived in posh homes, ate at fancy restaurants and spent their vacations in luxury ski resorts; while millions of average joes die from starvation." STOP! There was no Russian famine in the USSR during the 1970's, period. This is absolutely factually incorrect. As awful as the regime was, there was no famine during the 1970s. Being a Political Science major in a European country with a focus on Russian history and politics (and some google search skills) this is obviously wrong. You need to correct this.

  2. USA lucky because not collapse after fight with Vietnam vietcong
    After see USSR was collapse after Afghanistan
    Afghanistan-Vietnam = Win

  3. The main reason really is that they blew up a nuclear power plant that costed them 18 billion dollars and that wasn’t even the cost of the relocation of moving people away cause of the disaster and at that time there Dollar was right up
    With the U.S Dollar

  4. Союз нерушимый республик свободных
    Сплотила навеки Великая Русь
    Да здравствует созданный волей народов
    Единый, могучий Советский Союз

    Славься, Отечество наше свободное
    Дружбы народов надёжный оплот!
    Партия Ленина – сила народная
    Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт

    Сквозь грозы сияло нам солнце свободы
    И Ленин великий нам путь озарил
    На правое дело он поднял народы
    На труд и на подвиги нас вдохновил

    Славься, Отечество наше свободное
    Дружбы народов надёжный оплот
    Партия Ленина – сила народная
    Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт

    В победе бессмертных идей коммунизма
    Мы видим грядущее нашей страны
    И Красному знамени славной Отчизны
    Мы будем всегда беззаветно верны

    Славься, Отечество наше свободное
    Дружбы народов надёжный оплот
    Партия Ленина – сила народная
    Нас к торжеству коммунизма ведёт.

  5. I know this will make you argument wrong but there was a referendum with a majority going to keep the ussr. Also what do you mean the elite.
    Again people didn't hate the ussr. The events of 1993 and the 1991 referendum prove that the new generations were for the ussr existing. Only the people in pover who used their power to illigaly perform such actions. Also there was no fammin after the 1930 after that gamin there was always enough food. Relations with the ussr were rising and the ussr was surprising the US technologicaly and economicaly in 2005. Soviet economywas mostly self sustained with food and resources provided by the people already. How do you define the word poverty. People didn't die on the streets and food lines were caused the capitalist economy being introduced and communes not selling the food competing for profit while Gorbachev did nothing. After Stallin the soviet economy started to capitalise and right wing. PEOPLE STILL WANTED THE USSR YOU IDIOT. THE ONLY PEOPLE WANTED IT TO BE DESMANTLED ARE THE PEOPLE WHO HOLD POVER AND THAT IS WHY RUSSIA IS RULED BY OLIGARCHS.

    Gorbachev ruined the soviet political system and became not a marxist but a capitalist. He is a traitor, dictotor and an anti republican.

  6. Very simplistic, inaccurate and historically incorrect message. With no word about Mr. Yeltsin who was a major cause of breakup (and not economic hardships commonly mentioned), while Gorbachev was in fact planing a new Union agreement. And not all republics wanted to break out. For example, Russia simply cut loose Central Asian republics, which wanted to stay in.

  7. Thanks for the great history lesson clip.

    I think that Russian Elites tried to reerrect a Soviet Union by eating up the European Union.
    I think that they attempted to reach that by exchanging Goverment leaders, subverting State systems, using goon and mafia networks of EU as paramilitary auxilleriy forces in the social civil enviroment. Then also massive refugee waves to use as big cover group to insert infiltration groups.

  8. Imagine if there was a war between: 🇺🇦🇰🇿🇵🇱🇨🇿🇸🇰🇷🇸🇭🇷🇧🇦🇲🇪🇽🇰🇦🇱🇲🇰🇧🇬🇸🇮🇭🇺🇷🇴🇲🇩🇧🇾🇩🇪🇱🇹🇱🇻🇪🇪🇬🇪🇦🇲🇦🇿🇺🇿🇰🇬🇹🇲🇹🇯🇦🇫🇦🇹🇫🇮🇲🇳Vs🇷🇺

  9. You are chootiya. Gorbochov called for referendum where 78% people voted for retaining ussr but russia decided not to continue because of west puppet called for dissolution

  10. One of the reasons for the collapse of the USSR was the desire of the occupied states to liberate themselves, such as Lithuania. 🇱🇹❤️
