History of Russia
As a result of a continuous territory expansion the principality of Moscow became the huge Russian Empire by the 18th century, stretching from East Europe to the Pacific Ocean. The Russian Revolution in 1917 brought the communists to power and the Soviet Union (USSR) was established. The Cold War began in the 1950's and lasted until 1991, the dissolution of the Soviet Union when the Russian Federation became an independent state.
