Vladimir Ilytch Lenin was the leader of the Soviet Union before Stalin.
Stalin's goal was to turn the Soviet Union into a military and industrial superpower. Joseph Stalin ruled the Soviet Union from 1922 to 1952.
The Soviet leaders after Stalin were: Georgy Malenkov (March 6 to March 13 1953) Nikita Khruschev (1953 - 1964) Leonid Brezhnev (1964 - 1982) Yuri Andropov (1982 - 1984…) Konstantin Chernenko (1982 - 1985) Mikhail Gorbachev (1985 - 1991)
He made sure any political opponets were silenced. He kept a vast amount of the people in support of him, and the rest oppressed.
He launched the first in a series of five-year plans to modernize agriculture and build new industries from the ground up.
Georgy Malenkov . No not georgy. It was NIKITA KHRUSHCHEV.
Serbia was the most responsible country for WW1, as the Serb assasin, Gavrilo Princip assassinated the Austrian Archduke, Franz Ferdinand. This sparked the flame between the C…entral Powers and the Allies, and different countries started to take different sides, and soon, most countries were involved, and WW1, had begun.
Stalin was practical enough to lead the USSR to victory in WW II, yet paranoid enough to create a society so repressive that eventually it was rejected by its citizens, result…ing in the end of the USSR in 1990.
In USSR in WW2
he believe in the ideas of the philosopher Karl Marx in the beginning, that the peasants had the right to own land and to have a say in the government. Later he changed some i…deas of Marx concerning "additional product" and so on, he proofed it as fiction. Stalin & Marx didn't care about peasants he only cared about industrial workers. Stalin believed in Marxism and Leninism which means he believed that capitalism was evil and should be destroyed. They also believe that the whole world should be socialist (where the government doesn't have a say in the country, but has a very big say in the economy and regulates it for the good of the world) they also believe the world should be run by the workers and capitalists should be reeducated, and capitalism should be destroyed, that people should be taught how to live peacefully and make many farms so starvation and poverty don't exist and finally make way for true communism which is the destruction of the state and were people live without a government and work because they want to not because they have to. Stalin believed in socialism in one country, a belief Marx didn't share. he also believed in the aggravation of the classes from within, which is his idea that the country and the party will turn on their brothers and restore capitalism, so he should take complete control of the country and make sure that doesn't happen. he also liked to be worshiped, he hated religion (as did all Marxist's. he believed in making the USSR great. he believed in industrialisation and a strong military. he believed in libertarianism and unity and a self sufficient country. He believed in bureaucracy, democracy in name only and totalitarianism (government has total control of everyone lives). He was also sexist and homophobic & like most communists he believed in equal wages no matter what job. He also believed in collectivisation (which is when the peasants are forced to harvest the land for the good of the state).
Joseph Stalin became the Soviet leader through a process. He was given his initial power by Lenin at his death. However, Lenin wanted Leon Trotsky to rule the Soviet Union. St…alin hid this fact. He then allied other leaders and isolated his main enemy, Leon Trotsky. He eventually succeeded in having Trotsky expelled from the party (and later the entire country), He then repeated the process to eliminate all threats until he was made the absolute ruller of the Soviet Union.
What action did Stalin and the Soviet Union take in response to being 50-100 years behind other nations?
Stalin scrapped Lenin's New Economic Policy and replaced it with a series of Five Year Plans. They were designed to increase the industrial capacity of the Soviet Union to cat…ch up to that of the western world. The first one was instituted in 1928, exceeded its five year goal withing four years and a second plan was started. In a speech on February 4, 1931, he stated: "We have fallen behind the advanced countries by fifty to a hundred years. We must close that gap in ten years. Either we do this or we'll be crushed."
Kennan believed that the Soviet Union would not risk war to expand communism.
