When Boris Yeltsin visited the US in 1989, seeing an ordinary Houston supermarket caused him to rethink his "Bolshevik consciousness" and leave the Communist party:

"About a year after the Russian leader left office, a Yeltsin biographer later wrote that on the plane ride to Yeltsin"s next destination, Miami, he was despondent. He couldn"t stop thinking about the plentiful food at the grocery store and what his countrymen had to subsist on in Russia."

The funny thing is that you think the Soviet Union was actually communist, or at least seem to think so... And it was not. In any point of its existence, the Soviet Union or U.S.S.R. was either a transitional socialist state or a degenerate socialist state.
