Putin: Lenin to Blame for Soviet Union Collapse
The Russian leader added that he still kept his Communist party identification document, despite the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

"I cannot say I was a perfect communist, but I nevertheless treated it very carefully," Putin added.

Soviet Union was a country that existed between 1922 and 1991. It was succeeded by Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Estonia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine and Uzbekistan.

Last week, Putin said Soviet revolutionary Vladimir Lenin and his flow of thought were to blame for the collapse for the Soviet Union.
