China’s growing military might has prompted a change of focus for the transatlantic security alliance created to defend Europe and North America from the Soviet Union during the Cold War. For the first time in its 72-year history, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (Nato) has branded China as presenting “systemic challenges”. In a statement issued on June 14, 2021, at the conclusion of a one-day summit meeting, Nato countries vowed to counter Beijing’s rise to power.

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.
