need to restructure
main reason for the beginning of the 1985-1991 restructuring was the poor economic state of the USSR, which hit the country at the beginning of the decade.The first attempts to restructure the system of state made another Yuri Andropov, who began the fight against pervasive corruption and theft, the government dragged into the abyss of economic chaos, and tried to strengthen labor discipline.His attempts to bring changes were only attempts, not producing the desired effect.The state system was in a serious crisis, but officials of the state apparatus did not understand and did not realize it.
perestroika initiated by Mikhail Gorbachev, did not mean the state transition to another form of governmen
t.Socialism was to remain the state system.Under the restructuring understood the global economic modernization within the framework of the socialist model of economy and upgrade the ideological foundations of the state.
At the top leadership had no understanding in what direction should start moving, although it was a collective belief in the need for change.Subsequently, this led to the collapse of a huge state, which occupied the sixth of the land.But do not believe that in the case of an effective reform, sooner or later this break has not occurred.Too society needs new trends and changes, and the level of confidence was at a critical level.
Implications for State
During perestroika became clear that the model of socialism, created in the Soviet Union was almost unreformable.Perfect attempt to reform the system, initiated in the state of deep economic crisis, later led the country to a standstill.Changes in policy that made it possible to make the country more open and free, only led only to the fact that for many years kopivsheesya discontent among the masses, it is more than to splash out.
belated restructuring 1985-1991 is the disastrous example of what can happen with the state, if the government will delay the implementation of reforms.
Mikhail Gorbachev sure breakthrough committed during perestroika, is still relevant for most of the post-Soviet countries.The new states still need a powerful impetus and active actions of the authorities aimed at democratization of the society, which will have to complete the process started back in 1985.
