World War II Edit
The USSR was invaded by Germany in 1941, after renouncing the Molotov-Ribbentrop pact. Because the nation was unprepared, it fell easily to the German forces. Additionally, the nation had no support since the U.S. did not sign the Lend-Lease act and the alliance with Nazi Germany alienated the USSR from the West.
Majority of the USSR was still occupied by Nazi Germany of 1953.
