I put the pictures in the order they are, because the importance and the order they happened in history. The topics I picked were the: the Romanian Revolution, the Hungarian Uprising, the Prague Spring, the Velvet Revolution and the coup d' état. They started in 1980 and they ended in 1991. During that period the Soviet Union was in turmoil with thousands of people dying per year.

The final event of the uprisings against the Soviet Union was the coup d' état. The Russian people revolted against the Soviet government and attacked the cities of Moscow and St. Petersburg. After that, the Soviet Union fell apart and the countries that were part of the Soviet Union got their independence.
