FACTORS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE DISINTEGRATION OF USSR

The most important factor for the fall of the Soviet Union was a lack of proper leadership. There was no clear cut line between the party and government as there was one political party which was wielding power.

Mikhail Gorbachev’s policies of ‘Perestroika(restructuring) and glasnost (openness); and ‘Glasnost’ proved to be disastrous for the economic health of the USSR.

Anti-communists forces of the Soviet Union had the support of the USA and Western European countries. Gorbachev due to his liberal policies did not try to uproot these forces.

No effort was ever made to create a socialist human being and a socialist culture.
