Would you like to live in the Soviet Union?

The Russian newspaper "Nash Vremya" ("Our Times") is running a reader poll on its front page asking the question: "Would you like to live in the USSR?" (Хотели бы вы жить в СССР?). So far nearly 1,000 votes have been cast and the results are:


57% YES (I would like to live in the USSR)

43% NO (I wouldn't like to live in the USSR)

It's what you might call a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it shows the utter failure of the Putin regime; on the other, it shows the utter failure of Russia's system of education.
