True. Everything was just lovely before the breakup. Back in the good old days, the communists spread terror around the the old C.C.C.P and the rest of the world equally.
Not to mention all those nukes pointed at us and our allies.
Again, most Russians and quite a few people in the Slavic republics and Central Asia lament the break up of the nation, this is not the same thing as lamenting the death of the communist party.
