I never lived there, but i do have fond memories. I miss having them as an adversary to us. They were a good “bad” guy. Tough,solid. They had armies, not terrorists. With them you knew where the enemy was.

I certainly have good memories of living in USSR. It was collapsed when I was 13. I wouldn’t like to live in the Soviet Union now though.
Answer by Dima G
Some things were great back in USSR and some things were not. Education was free, health care was free, most of the children were busy doing something positive (sports, free time classes) People could plan their lives up to retirement. Benefits. There are some bad things, but I will not name them 🙂

Yeah, I lived in the USSR for 14 years and I’d say, that you should look for somebody with 50+ years and who wasn’t first wave of immigration in the US, means somebody’s father/mother who came here following son/daughter. Those people can be helpful for you = they’re objective about how the life was at that time.
As for now, all of people, who has responded to your post (incl. myself)- they definitely didn’t live in 70’s or 60’s. However, if you want to know a lot about Perestroyka or about childhood in the USSR- we can help you too.
