Webmaster: Begemot2 (Link to current E-mail address)

The original Begemot appeared in Mikhail Bulgakov's humorous modern classic The Master and Margarita. MM was prudently hidden in the 1930s, but gradually released following Stalin's death. Various web-sites discuss it, and perhaps even carry the text.

Mission statement

Due to events too painful even to think about, the earthly USSR no longer exists. Nevertheless, wherever progressive people meet, there will remain the USSR of our fond aspirations, a realm where no kulak goes un-liquidated, no five-year-plan goes un-overfulfilled, and no Great Leader and Teacher goes un-venerated. This land of our dreams exists on the Internet, the Cyber-USSR (po-russki: Kiberneticheskii Soyuz S.S.R.)

We are looking for Soviet kitsch and oddities, especially from the Stalin era.

    Karl Marx

      Karl Marx wrote the Communist Manifesto in 1848, when revolutions (mostly non-Communist) were breaking out across the European continent. You can read it in several foreign languages, including Marx's original German.

      The Manifesto's ironical first sentence, "A spectre is haunting Europe-- the spectre of Communism," is recognized by many who know little of Marx. Its last sentence, "Workers of all nations, unite!" has been adopted as a motto by Communist parties around the world, translated into numerous languages, and frequently parodied.

    "Works of Soviet Literature summarized for those unable or too lazy to read them in the original."
