What was the Soviet Union's goal after World War 2?
There was the Space Race and the Cold War, all of which the US won. The Soviet Union did accomplish many firsts in space such as the first ever launching of a satellite, but as the race neared it's end, US technicians and scientists were working feverishly on a spacecraft that would be successful in taking the first ever humans to the moon. Basing the whole Space Race on that, you could say that the US has won the Space Race. Onto the Cold War, the Soviet Union spent too much money on weapons technology, producing the MiGs you see in the sky today but doing so made the economy an unbalanced infrastructure and the whole Soviet Union just collapsed, due to lack of economical stability. Funny, the Soviet Union needed to spend most of its money to KEEP UP with the US while the US still retained a well-balanced economy and succeeded in bringing about the best weapons, aircraft, and ships today!

How did World War I end for russia?
Russia one of the main combatants of world war 1 would fight until revolutionaries took control of the Russian capitol and formed the U.s.s.r, the newly formed Soviet government was unable and unwilling to continue the war against Germany and signed an armistice in November of 1918 This armstice awarded the Germans with a large portion of Soviet lands, encompassing modern day western Russia, Ukraine and Poland. The Defeat of the Germans resulted in some of this land to be restored to the Soviet Union, however war was just beginning for the Soviet union. The Soviet union would spend the next 5 years trying to fight Ukrainian, Polish Finnish, Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian independence movements in Europe alone. They would only manage to reclaim the Ukraine due to the politics of the Ukrainian allies in Poland
