Soviet Black Sea Union (Intro & table of contents)

Sign in to follow this  





A Brief History: In the shadow of the Soviet collapse in Russia, much of what was the Krasnodar region and The Republic of Adygeya opted to reject the political reform going on in Moscow in the name of preserving Soviet Russia. Bolstered by the area's economic possibilities (given its place on the Black Sea) and overwhelming support of the citizens, Moscow had little choice but to ratify the independence and separation from what would shortly become the Russian Federation. After the instability of the Soviet Union's demise was shaken, The Soviet Black Sea Union was able to grow and develop substantially, slowly  becoming a industrialized nation.

for those who are about to read this CJ for the first time like I just have, this is not a city Journal. This is a statement, this is a bold, un yielding statement about communism.
