SOVIET UNION Sudden Death: The year's most momentous story was the rapid collapse of the Soviet Union, which seemed to implode and disappear into the black hole of history in less than five months. By the end of 1991, the 74-year-old Soviet superpower had ceased to exist. Rising from the ruins was the Commonwealth of Independent States, which linked 11 of the 15 former Soviet republics as sovereign states and was led by Russian Federation President Boris N. Yeltsin. Meanwhile, former Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev was a man without a job. Prelude to Crisis: The beginning of 1991 saw Gorbachev alternately loosening and tightening his grip on the rebellious republics as he tried to quell ethnic and labor disputes and just hold the nation together.

The Kremlin, seeking ever more desperately to save the collapsing national economy, is preparing proposals for a program akin to the Marshall Plan for the Soviet Union, Prime Minister Valentin S. Pavlov said in an interview released Sunday. Pavlov gave no details on his ideas for winning the kind of massive aid that the United States provided to post-World War II Europe, but said he is convinced that "what we need is a long-term program for the attraction of foreign investment."

Although the precise involvement of the increasingly conservative Soviet Communist Party with the Emergency Committee created by the eight is still shadowy, many of the committee's members occupy positions in the top party hierarchy.
