The New Soviet Citizen

The New Soviet Citizen

(p.218) Chapter Fifteen The New Soviet Citizen

Janet M. Hartley

Yale University Press

This chapter discusses the Soviet society that emerged in Siberia in the twentieth century. Vast numbers of people had moved within and across Siberia seeking a better life, displaced by civil war, transported as kulaks or as “enemies of the people.” From the 1930s, there was a massive industrialization of the USSR, and of Siberia in particular, attracting migrants from the countryside and European Russia to expanded and entirely new cities. By the 1980s, Siberia had become the source of more than 80% of the Soviet Union's oil resources and 90% of its gas. Whole new cities were founded and the population of existing cities massively increased, with enormous suburbs stretching far into the forest and the tundra.
