I think that Russia is such an obvious answer that people sort of subconsciously eliminate it. I mean, people frequently referred to the USSR as just "Russia" anyway, so it can feel like the question is "What countries used to be part of Russia," and you wouldn't necessarily think you'd have to put "Russia" down for that.

I wouldn't consider Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania in this list. At least they aren't in the geography song my kids learned about the countries of the former USSR

Has it occurred to you that the song is wrong then? Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania most definitely three of the fifteen republics of the old USSR.

Technically, yes. Many countries, in fact most, considered it an illegal takeover and several, including the US, maintained that the Baltic States were independent nations.

"Technically, yes"...? Well this quiz is about which countries were "technically" part of the Soviet Union!

Level 75
Dec 7, 2018
The USSR issued passports, Russified the Baltic countries, and were governed by the Communist Party and all three were Republics of the USSR, on par with other republics (except for Russia). They were considered essentially Soviet. Recognized or not, legal or not, they were part of the Soviet Union in practice.

How did so many people miss Russia, they were practically the Soviet Union anyway. 88% is shocking, even Ukraine managed 95%.
+1
Level 78
Dec 7, 2018
I think because people just think Russia = USSR, so its like the other countries broke off and they forget to put Russia as an answer. I almost missed it as well and then the light bulb went on.

Level 84
Dec 7, 2018
I think you answered your own question when you said Russia was practically the Soviet Union. A lot of people are probably thinking of countries *other than* Russia since they see Russia and the USSR as synonymous.
