after the revolution.

there's a funny story about Russia, USSR and selling Alaska to the US i heard some time ago but i don't know if its true. When i was in Russia I heard the story that Alaska was not sold to the US as is generally believed but only rented by the US which just didn't return Alaska after Russia became the USSR.

Judging from pictures I've seen of I-16s with the slogan "Za CCCP!" (For the USSR!)on them, it was at least from the end of the Civil war, which ended in the mid twenties and consolidated their hold on most of the old Russian Empire.

The 'Republics' part was a bit of inspired fiction to support the idea that it was an entirely popular (democratic) movement by the people. With a few notable exceptions, the Russians were firmly in control of the government and the military.
