Russia's major history events.

In 1962, the arms race between Soviet Union and United States was escalating. Soviet missiles were still only powerful enough to be launched against Europe but U.S. missiles were capable of striking the entire Soviet Union from their installations in Turkey. In late April 1962, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev conceived the idea of placing intermediate-range missiles in Cuba. A deployment in Cuba would double the Soviet strategic arsenal and provide a real deterrent to a potential U.S. attack against the Soviet Union. In 1980, Vladimir Vysotsky dies in Moscow. In 1991, THE SOVIET UNION ENDS!!!
