    Pros & Cons of the Soviet Union

    "When we became independent, we have a joke that we became independent not just from the Soviet Union, but also from oil, natural gas... we became... super poor at the same time. A lot of factories... had been working for the needs of the Soviet Union, so there was no point running them any more. A lot of very talented people... became unemployed in a moment."
