On September 14th in 1917, Russia was officially proclaimed a republic. The Russian Republic was a short-lived political entity occupying the territory of the former Russian Empire during the 1917 struggle for power that ended with the October Revolution and established the Soviet regime. Without the Soviet Union, we wouldn’t have had that awesome Beatles song Back in the USSR, or any of the Cold War movies of the 80s/90s – War Games, Hunt For Red October, Red Dawn, Red Heat, or Rocky IV. The entertainment industry would’ve been f***ed! Fortunately, we didn’t nuke each other and ladies like the ones you’re about to see were allowed to grow and grace us with their hotness and their impossible-to-pronounce last names, which make mes wonder if Jay-Z (H.O.V.A.) is a rooskie.
