Hi! Thanks for visiting my page!
This blog is the compilation of my Twentieth Century Russia undergraduate course. I have been interested in Soviet history since visiting St. Petersburg in the summer of 2016, and wanted to learn more through this course. Further, I am a strong believer in the idea that the past will indicate the future. Thus, as I study national security I want to understand precisely what the name of my blog entails: The Lasting Effects of a Soviet Sphere of Influence.
I hope that you enjoy my posts and find them to be helpful in your own studies; I just ask that you give me credit for my insight!
