Examples of Soviet in a Sentence

  1. Jeb Bush:

    Vladimir Putin kneels and Vladimir Putin says bigger and stronger and faster than Barney, and anyway, it was an instructive moment. Imagine that ? A president saying my dog is bigger than your dog. And really what it says is Vladimir's got a chip on Vladimir Putin shoulder because Vladimir Putin believes the demise of the Soviet was bad for the world.

  2. Jack BarskyRead MoreJack Barsky:

    Historically, the KGB has always tried to influence and destabilize events all around the world. The explicitly stated goal of the Soviet Union was world communism organized in a Soviet-like system. Therefore, anything that could destabilize free and democratic nations was fair game. The KGB were champions in the game of 'fake news,' which was called 'disinformation' in the old days. While Russia's goals are not as ambitious as those of the Soviet Union, it is quite clear that the Russian leadership desperately wants to re-establish a strong Russia, on par with the United States. Therefore, anything that helps destabilize the US and other Western countries, anything that turns the focus of those countries inward rather than at the real outward threats would benefit Russia. In my view, it is not possible for a foreign nation to have a significant impact on the outcome of elections in this country. Try as they might, all they will be able to do is nibble around the edges.

  3. Golda Meir:

    What do you gain, Soviet Union, from this miserable policy Where is your decency Would it be a disgrace for you to give up this battle (On suppression of freedom for Jews in the USSR)

  4. Batu Kutelia:

    The Russian army is an heir to the Soviet army and accuracy of strikes was never a priority for it.

  5. Sam Greene:

    This government has tried very hard to portray itself as the heir of both the Soviet Union and tsarist Russia, but it doesn't want to explicitly take a side in the revolution. If it says it was or was not justified, it is going to make friends among some and alienate a lot of others.
