Why Did the Soviet Union Break up?

Answer

The Soviet Union broke up because its economic growth and domestic development stagnated due to Soviet military buildup. This brought forth a general feeling of discontent and led to destruction of the Soviet Federal Government, which was caused by weakening of the soviet government. Most of the nations of the Soviet Union declared their independence and wanted to be recognized as sovereign nation-states.
