Introduction. History Take Home Test 23. To what extend did Gorbachev overcome the internal problems he faced as leader of the USSR between 1985 and 1991. In 1982 - 1985 the Soviet Union faced political decay due to a series of deaths of political figures. In February 1982 Andropov, followed by his replacement Chernenko, in March 1985. Due to these deaths the Soviet Union's economy was left in a vulnerable states, which had become increasingly hindered due to the arms race. For many years there had bee an on going battle between the East and West to see who could produce the most outstanding technology, besides sputnik the soviets were drastically behind. Thus, to close the gap between the two, the Soviet's had invested a large amount of money in microelectronics and computers, in turn draining the economy. Evidently, apart from the inefficiencies resulting from too much bureaucratic and central control the attempt by the Soviet Union to keep up with the US military might had distorted and ...

*  Israelis Return from USSR Visit | Jewish Telegraphic Agency
TEL AVIV (Sep. 8). A member of the delegation of six Israeli critics of Israel's foreign policy who went to the Soviet Union as guests of the Russian Peace Committee said here today on his return that delegation members found among many Russians they met the view that Israel's right to exist was indisputable. Prof. Dan Miron of Tel Aviv University, speaking for the group at an improvised press conference, said that the delegation members were convinced that resumption of normal diplomatic relations between Israel and the Soviet Union was of "paramount importance.". The invitation for the six Israelis to visit the USSR was widely viewed as evidence of a reported Soviet interact in exploring that possibility but Prof. Miron had nothing to say as to whether the delegation found any evidence to support those reports. He said he was convinced that most Russian Jews had found their place as "an integral part" of the Russian nation but should be given the opportunity to maintain cultural ties with ...

*  U.S. GAO - Former Soviet Union: Assessment of U.S. Bilateral Programs
GAO discussed U.S. assistance to the former Soviet Union (FSU), focusing on: (1) how the executive branch has ensured program and policy coordination among federal agencies; (2) whether the Agency for International Development's (AID) assistance projects have met their objectives and contributed to systematic reform; and (3) whether the Cooperative Threat Reduction (CTR) program has achieved its objectives on schedule and what its long term projects are. GAO noted that: (1) the FSU assistance program's coordination has improved since the President strengthened the role and authority of the FSU coordinator; (2) successful AID projects for promoting economic reform and fostering the transition to democracy were strongly supported by the FSU government, were broad in scope, and considered their own sustainability from the outset; and (3) CTR has progressed over the past year and it will likely achieve its objectives, although it still has challenges to overcome, especially in chemical weapons ...

*  Autopsy on an Empire: Understanding Mortality in Russia and the Former Soviet Union
Downloadable! Male life expectancy at birth fell by over six years in Russia between 1989 and 1994. Many other countries of the former Soviet Union saw similar declines, and female life expectancy fell as well. Using cross-country and Russian household survey data, we assess six possible explanations for this upsurge in mortality. Most find little support in the data: the deterioration of the health care system, changes in diet and obesity, and material deprivation fail to explain the increase in mortality rates. The two factors that do appear to be important are alcohol consumption, especially as it relates to external causes of death (homicide, suicide, and accidents) and stress associated with a poor outlook for the future. However, a large residual remains to be explained.

*  Rail transport in the Soviet Union - Wikipedia
The Soviet Union was heavily dependent on rail transport, not least during the Russian Civil War and World War II, but also for industrialization according to the five-year plans. During the Soviet era, freight rail traffic increased 55 times (over that of the Russian empire just before World War I), passenger traffic increased almost 10 times, and the length of the rail network almost doubled. The Soviet Union had a railway network of 147,400 kilometres (91,600 mi) (excluding industrial railways), of which 53,900 kilometres (33,500 mi) were electrified. After the foundation of the Soviet Union the People's Commissariat of Railways (NKPS) (after 1946 renamed the Ministry of Railways (МПС)), the railway network expanded to a total length of 106,100 km by 1940 (vs. 81,000 km in 1917 which was exceeded in length only by the United States). The volume of freight hauled (in tonne-km) increased over 4 fold during this period. A notable project of the late 1920s and one of the centerpieces of the ...
