Just Before the Dissolution, 40 Fascinating Pics Capture Street Scenes of the Soviet Union in 1990

The dissolution of the Soviet Union, or collapse of the Soviet Union, began in the second half of the 1980s with growing unrest in the national republics and ended on 26 December 1991.

Both the Revolutions of 1989 and the dissolution of the USSR also marked the end of the Cold War.

Several of the former Soviet republics have retained close links with the Russian Federation and formed multilateral organizations such as the Commonwealth of Independent States, Eurasian Economic Community, the Union State, the Eurasian Customs Union and the Eurasian Economic Union to enhance economic and security cooperation.

On the other hand, the Baltic states have joined NATO and the European Union.

These fascinating pics were taken by Jim Linwood that show street scenes of the Soviet Union in March 1990.
