JCC:Dissolution of the USSR

The year is 1989 and it is for the USSR that the bell tolls: the decrepit socialist state is experiencing an existential crisis. Premier Mikhail Gorbachev, guiding the country through some of the most turbulent times it has ever faced, is insistent on change, for which purpose he has introduced immense democratic reform. However, forces gaining voices through these policies of perestroika and glasnost threaten non-cooperation, and even conflict! As parliamentarians in the Supreme Soviet, delegates will be able to guide the union’s destiny: Those in the Soviet of the Union will be representing the interests of the country at-large, while those in the Soviet of the Nationalities will speak for the republics of the USSR. Will you fight for the union, or seek to dissolve it?


“Dangers await only those who do not react to life.”


-Mikhail Gorbachev, 1989
