USSR 31 December 1999


The Soviet Union (USSR) formally ceased to exist 32 years ago, on 31 December 1991.

The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), then became 15 independent countries:

  1. Armenia
  2. Azerbaijan
  3. Belarus
  4. Estonia
  5. Georgia
  6. Kazakhstan
  7. Kyrgyzstan
  8. Latvia
  9. Lithuania
  10. Moldova
  11. Russia
  12. Tajikistan
  13. Turkmenistan
  14. Ukraine
  15. Uzbekistan

Russia, which controlled the USSR to a great degree, has lost control of many of these countries, although appears to be trying to stop the remaining ones from leaving it’s sphere of influence.
