What was the best Soviet Republic?

Postby Treciene » Fri Feb 26, 2021 10:44 am

There were a total of 15 Soviet Republics at the end of the Soviet Union. They were:
Armenian
Azerbaijani
Byelorussian
Estonian
Georgian
Kazakh
Kirghiz
Latvian
Lithuanian
Moldavian
Russian
Tajik
Turkmen
Ukrainian
Uzbek
All of these Soviet Republics had the same features: a ruling communist party, terrible infrastructure, ethnic peoples, and a lot more. But they were all different in some way. Kazakhstan had the baikonur cosmodrome used for Soviet space missions. Moldova had Moldevenism, and Georgia had a not red and yellow flag.

So what is the best Soviet republic?

In my opinion, I think it is Russia, because it was the largest, both in size and people. Also, it dominated the soviets in culture, economy, and technology.

You sure? The infrastructure of the likes of the Baltic states and Ukraine wasn't that bad.

The Bavarian Soviet Republic, because it was a workers council republic and somehow had Hitler as a member of all people.

Estonia.

The soviet legacy in that country was more and quicker dismantled than in any of the others.

That's true, but according to your reasoning, Armenia would be the best Soviet Republic.

Estonia.

It's the freest, wealthiest, and most well-educated country in the former USSR. Estonia has as much in common with Nordic Finland as it does with Russia. The Baltic states were the first countries to unilaterally secede from the USSR and repudiate communism in the Singing Revolution. Literally everyone joined hands and formed an unbroken human chain spanning Tallinn, Estonia to Vilnius, Lithuania, something that Hong Kongers picked up on in 2019 to mark the 30th anniversary of the Singing Revolution that culminated in the Baltic States' independence a few years later.

None, The USSR fell far from Lenin's ideals. I'm not going to say "not true Communism" or anything, but if Lenin stuck to his ideals what the USSR would be very different then today.

Elections, freedom, free religion instead of state atheism, farmers allowed to sell there crops.

Bruh, what? Lenin was as much of an authoritarian and anti-theist as Stalin. Not sure where you got this nonsense from.
