TheSovietUnionandtheEasternBlocpartI Photo Following World War II, Joseph Stalin re-instituted oppressive rule within the Soviet Union. The war had temporarily relaxed dictatorial terror while also fostering an ardent Russian nationalism. The Cold War allowed Stalin to use his power to struggle with a new foe, the United States. Millions of people were sent to the Soviet labor camps, known collectively by the Russian slang term “Gulag”. Culture and art were also purged. Countries occupied by the Red Army following the ending of the war now saw themselves dominated by the Soviet Union. These countries included Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, East Germany, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Yugoslavia.

Good luck on the quiz.
