Valdai Paper Special Issue: What If… the Soviet Union Had Not Collapsed?


At the 13th Annual Meeting the Valdai Discussion Club holds a special session titled "What If… the Soviet Union Had Not Collapsed?" The Centenary of the October Revolution is approaching. And this anniversary, naturally, presumes a serious and thoughtful understanding of the Soviet experience in the development of Russia, not only from a historical point of view but also in terms of the projection into the future. Question about how important is the Soviet heritage for us today (including the legacy of the Soviet foreign policy) is, of course, extremely important and relevant to determine the ideological motives and values of modern politics.
