The collapse of the Soviet Union, has become for many of our compatriots something akin to the end of the world. Secured communist "yesterday", in which the Soviet man did not have to think about the structure of the day tomorrow, passed. There was a hard time for a change in the conditions which were absolutely not clear what will have at least a week. This period in the history of the former Soviet countries was marked by a large number of strange, unpleasant and even fun events. Let us recall the most striking of them.
1. Advertising on television and the store on the couch
Back in the 1980s, advertising on Soviet television virtually absent. All this changed with the beginning of a new capitalist era. Funny, naive, trite and frankly bizarre advertising a variety of goods captivated television. It comes to the fore the promotion of products that are actually useless for the majority of his compatriots.
Separate striking phenomenon of the "dashing 90" became the so-called "shops on the couch." Pretentious, boring advertising campaigns on TV, trying to sell frank trash and consumer goods, giving his things without which "certainly" can not do on the farm.
2. "Santa Barbara"
In the 1990s, television are very popular western series. One of the first broadcast becomes, of course, "Santa Barbara." The adventures of its inhabitants did not follow only a lazy housewife. Over time, the series is just getting bigger. Among them, "Friends" and "Ellen and the boys."
"There's no money, but you will stay." This sentence was to be pronounced as early as the 1990s. In the first half of this sad period, many fellow just could not get at least some wages. In some enterprises do not have the money. Others openly steal them. Even among themselves the factories and companies have been forced to pay often with the help of barter. At this time, to get a salary soap or pants for the working tractor factory was the "norm" .Reklama
4. Tabloid press
The phenomenon of the tabloid press has appeared during perestroika in the Soviet Union, when the censorship is no longer tightly control the media. At the same time, many publishers choose to use tabloids to increase its profitability. However, this prosperity "Speed-Info" has achieved already in the "dashing 90". A typical element of the tabloids getting a huge amount of publicity. From the headlines of the newspapers today can make a book of jokes.

5. "Chupa Chups" and salad "Snickers"
The first restaurant "McDonalds" appeared in Moscow during the Soviet era in 1990. After the collapse of the USSR Western brands and delicious food harmful then poured into the former communist countries. However, against the background of the economic crisis for the majority of compatriots all these goodies are largely unavailable. At first time. Buying a new-fangled "Snickers" - an event in the family. Try it invite friends and neighbors. A bar at the same time is cut into small pieces. The most "crazy" and the wealthy citizens are prepared from "Snickers" salad on New Year's Eve, tucking his mayonnaise.
"Do you want to live - to know how to spin." Unfortunately, this principle for many compatriots in the 1990s, became dominant. Scam number in 1990 was truly terrible. A prime example sell the gullible and financially illiterate citizens certainly become Mavrodi and his pyramid "MMM". At the time, the man even managed to get elected to the State Duma! Finally his Ponzi scheme collapsed in 1997 alone.
7. Breaking Away
Wild celebrations, the heyday of "drug culture" performances, shocking performances and provocations - a public life of Russia was plunged into a real orgy in the 1990s. Foreign tourists arriving in this time in Moscow, experiencing frank shock of what is happening in local clubs. Someone goes into the lead in the pursuit of high. Someone in an attempt to escape from the terrible reality.
Even the Russian State Duma at the time recalls some circus. For example, the LDPR leader Vladimir Zhirinovsky foreign media called "eccentric ultra-Nazi."
