"Soviets" in context

The soviets were a Marxist-Leninist state that existed from 1922 to 1991. Founded in a tumultuous period of civil war and foreign intervention, they emerged as a superpower, vying with the United States in a forty-five-year Cold War. The Soviet Union presided over a vast stretch of territory inhabited by dozens of ethnicities. At its peak, it encompassed fifteen republics, stretching from the Baltic to the Pacific, and the Arctic to the Caucasus. From their base in Moscow, the Soviets led a massive program of industrialization, collectivization and political repression that shaped the country for generations.
