Back in the USSR

Despite the USSR's clout and the pressure of the Cold War, few Americans could name the nation's leaders (and fewer still could spell them). In this quiz, you'll provide the last names of the 8 men who ran the USSR from its formation in 1917, and the 3 men who've headed the Russian Federation since then. Can you work out the spellings before the 10-minute timer runs out?
