Mao Zedong famously dismissed reactionaries as “paper tigers.” He said, “The outcome of a war is decided by the people, not by one or two new types of weapon.” People throughout China donated money and supplies to support the effort to resist U.S. aggression and aid the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. This part of CGTN’s documentary “Enemy on the doorstep: China’s involvement in the Korean War” shows the whole country’s efforts in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea. #KoreanWar1950 #China #KoreaCGTN YouTube Channel

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.
