President of Russia Vladimir Putin in a message to the Federal Assembly in 2005 called the collapse of the USSR the largest geopolitical catastrophe of the last century. A few years later, in an interview with director Oliver Stone, he explained that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, 25 million Russian people were left overnight in one night. The social protection system was completely destroyed in the country, the health care system, entire sectors of the economy were stopped, the army was in a deplorable state, and millions of people were below the poverty line, Putin said.
