Back when Putin was just rising up in the KGB! Comrade, it's time you commemorate important history! NEW PRICE! For sale: a total of 17 issues of Soviet Life magazine from 1980-1985, in English. Full list of months available below. (Plus, I just added another issue from 1976 to this collection)

All are in good condition, a few still have the original brown paper mailing cover. A few have slight tears, creases and wear on the covers, but nothing major. All are fully stapled, no loose or missing pages.

See the art, various cultures, history, sports, music, literature, countryside, and landscapes of the various regions of the world's largest country during the final years of the Cold War. Very similar to Life magazine made here in the United States.

A bit of background: "Soviet Life, was a 60-64-page color monthly magazine of Russian culture. It started in 1956 as USSR Life. A few years later, The USSR changed its name to Soviet Life.

While never a blatant Soviet propaganda tool, it did hew to the government line. Yet it sought to present an informed view of Russian culture, history, scientific achievements and the various peoples inhabiting the Soviet Union.

Under the terms of an inter-governmental agreement, the subscription level was restricted for many years to around 30,000."

Years and Months available:
1980-November
1982-April, July, August, September, October
