Abstract

The presented article deals with the dissolution of the Soviet Union and political-economic problems accompanying this process. Immediately after Stalin’s death, Beria initiated an amnesty, liquidated the Gulag, abolished the special meetings of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, and began the process of rehabilitating innocent victims. The Kremlin party nomenclature could not tolerate these reforms in any way, therefore, just two weeks after the adoption of decrees, the party bosses arrested L. Beria. By criticizing Stalin’s personality, N. Khrushchev literally began to methodically cut the branch on which the Soviet political economic system sat. Corrupt political-economic bureaucracy began to form in the country at once and it pervaded in all spheres of Soviet political and economic life.

Thus, as soon as Khrushchev came to power, the Soviet communist-corrupt political economic system began to form, which lasted until its overthrow. The rumors that  the Soviet system was destroyed by foreign special services are not true.
