Topic: What was the perception of the dissolution of the USSR amongst the republics within it?
•The paper should investigate the question from 2 perspectives. The first perspective being, whether the government and people of said republics have seen the collapse of the USSR as a way of obtaining the independence, and therefore feeling enthusiastic about the event. Second perspective being, whether the dissolution of the USSR was considered by the republics as a traumatic loss.
•The criterias are attached in the additional materials. For this work, only the investigation part (criterion B) is needed.
•This topic of the work is not compulsory. If there are any other topics that the writer would feel more comfortable writing about it, those topics can be chosen instead. The only requirement is that the topic should explore the controversial matter happened in the 20th century, preferably an event connected to the Second World War (or the Cold War).
