During the bulk of the 20th century, the Soviet Union was one of the world’s two super powers. In the wake of the collapse of the Soviet Union, newly independent Russia was left in a weak state. In the two decades since the collapse of the Soviet Union, Russia has reasserted itself as one of the world’s powers.
