CGTN published this video item, entitled “Making A New China Ep.11: Doubt vs Determination” – below is their description.
In the middle to late 1980s, with the deepening of opening up and reform, many deep-seated domestic contradictions began to surface in China, and socialism suffered serious setbacks in Central and Eastern Europe as the Soviet Union disintegrated.
In China, some people doubted the country’s ongoing reform and opening-up policy. Yet Deng Xiaoping and a new generation of leaders were determined to carry on building socialism with Chinese characteristics. CGTN YouTube Channel

In This Story: Soviet Union
The Soviet Union, officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR), was a federal socialist state in Northern Eurasia that existed from 1922 to 1991. Nominally a union of multiple national Soviet republics, it was a one-party state (until 1990) governed by the Communist Party, with Moscow as its capital in its largest republic, the Russian SFSR.
The Soviet Union had its roots in the October Revolution of 1917 when the Bolsheviks, headed by Vladimir Lenin, overthrew the Provisional Government that had earlier replaced the monarchy of the Russian Empire.
On 25 December 1991, Gorbachev resigned and the remaining twelve constituent republics emerged from the dissolution of the Soviet Union as independent post-Soviet states. The Russian Federation (formerly the Russian SFSR) assumed the Soviet Union’s rights and obligations and is recognized as its continued legal personality.
