USSR. " UNION of SOVIET SOCIALIST REPUBLICS ". People in the US usually refered to it as "Russia", but Russia is just one of the republics that made up the USSR. It started when the individual republics joined after the Russian Revolution and ended when the union was disolved a few years ago. You can look up the exact dates, but the union existed approximately from 1917 to 1999.

In Russian, the USSR looks like CCCP
