Аннотация

This course is devoted to the international dimension of the history of the Soviet Union and contextualizes it within the developments of the communist movement and socialist projects around the world. We will analyze the international ambitions of the Soviet Union. Particularly, we will pay attention to the idea of the “world revolution” and the attempts to instigate revolutionary processes abroad. We will compare and analyze the relationships between the Soviet Union and other socialist states (for example, China, North Korea, Cuba, countries of Central and Eastern Europe after the Second World War, etc.). In addition, the focus will be on the relations of the Soviet Union with other communist parties in the world, as well as their coordination and interaction within the framework of international communist organizations (such as the Comintern, Cominform, etc.). Finally, we will analyze some of the attempts by the Soviet leadership to establish and support pro-Soviet non-socialist regimes in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Such a comparative and transnational view of the Soviet history will highlight the features of the Soviet project, its international ambitions and relations, as well as its influence on the development of global and regional processes in the 20th and 21st centuries. The persistence of the legacy of the Soviet Union, as well as the presence and influence of socialist and communist ideas in contemporary world highlight the importance of this course not only for historical but also present day issues.
