"We need economic reform and political reform. The central question is with which to start."1

- Yuri Andropov, General Secretary of the Communist Party, in 1982.

"Gentlemen, comrades, do not be concerned about all you hear about Glasnost and Perestroika and democracy in the coming years. They are primarily for outward consumption. There will be no significant internal changes in the Soviet Union, other than for cosmetic purposes."2

- Mikhail Gorbachev, General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union at a politburo meeting in 1987.


On August 20, 1991, Estonia, taking advantage of the relatively greater freedom that Mikhail Gorbachev (Gorbachev), president of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR), allowed to the Soviet republics, formally declared its independence from the Soviet Union. Following this, several other republics3 of the Soviet Union started declaring their sovereignty, and the USSR, created in 1922 by the union of several republics that in earlier times had been part of the Russian empire, broke up into independent states.

The Russian empire had been controlled by the Tsars right from the 16th century.
