The Soviet Union (officially the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, or USSR) was a Eurasian sovereign state that existed from 1922 to 1991; it collapsed after a series of reforms, and the constituent nations each declared independence. Russia is officially treated as the successor state to the Soviet Union, and took its place at the United Nations, including the United Nations Security Council.
