The Soviet Union

"If you can not win one thing, it does not mean that you can not win at all …" The Soviet Union has entered into the Cold War in the mid-40s of the twentieth century, and played it in December 1991, when there was a final dissolution of the Soviet Union. But when and why it was possible to say with certainty that the fate of the Soviets has been solved? Obviously, this is not December 1991go, but several earlier .. So, after the victory in World War II a vacuum in the foreign politichekskom space Planet Earth – all former players (Old Europe and Japan) in smoking ruin. In an effort to maximize the limits of its influence, the void began to actively take up the two biggest players at the time – the Soviet Union and United States. Their ideological, cultural and economic differences that have been forgotten during the war, began to rapidly deteriorate. So, shortly after the Second World War in 1945 started "Cold War". That did the Soviet elite in order to win this war? It is clear that it regarded as a force, as well as an ideological battlefield. It is known that the Soviet Union was focused on the power aspect, while the results for ideological field left something to be desired. In particular, the "Soviet and anti-Soviet propaganda in the world are aligned as 1:1000." In my opinion, the main reason for the defeat in the Cold War was the refusal of the Soviet Union on the full and fundamental study of his opponent.
