The first cracks to the Soviet Moloch started creeping in the late 70s. The centrally planned economy did not provide for the needs of the country with a population of almost three hundred million people.
Enormous resources were spent on the arms race and financing of foreign pro-Moscow politicians. The authorities still managed to hide the fact that the Bolshevist Titanic was doomed thanks to the Kremlin’s dictatorial regime.
After the death of Leonid Illich Brezhnev who had ruled the Soviet Union for 18 years, a chance for changes appeared. The next day after the death of the Secretary-General, citizens of the Soviet Union were announced about the appointment of a new Secretary-General. On June 16, 1983, a former KGB Head Yuriy Andropov took power over.
