Um, the Soviet Union went bankrupt.
In 1989 published in the NY times:
''We're disarming the Soviet Union faster than you are,'' the head of Pepsico told President Bush's national security adviser.
Pepsico recently bought from the Soviets 17 submarines (for a measly $150,000 each), a cruiser, a frigate and a destroyer. They are being resold for scrap. It has also bought new Soviet tankers (to carry oil, not beverages) in a joint venture with the Soviets and a Norwegian company that will lease them out or sell them."
