RUSSIANS, UKRAINIANS, ARMENIANS, ESTONIANS, UZBEKS, KAZAKHS...MORE THAN 100 NATIONS AND NATIONALITIES BUT ONE UNION --The unity of the Soviet peoples, Soviet Life spread, 1977 -- Daily LIFT #863
A new historical entity of people, the Soviet people , has developed in our country. This means that common features of behavior, character, world outlook of Soviet people, features irrespective of social or national differences, become increasingly marked. This means that the alliance of the working class and the peasantry, which has always been the basis of the social system, has found its development in the indestructible political and ideological unity of these classes with the intelligentsia, which has long since firmly taken socialist positions. And today we can rightfully speak of the strong alliance of all working people, workers by hand and brain, the alliance of the working class, the collective farm peasantry, and the people's intelligentsia as a fact of our reality. This alliance in which the working class plays the leading role , is strong and inviolable. -- Leonid Brezhnev
A glimpse of the ideal and union that was lost with the counter-revolution of 1990-1991.
