At the moment, tag russia has the following description:
The largest country in the world, spanning territory from the eastern edge of Europe to Siberia in northern Asia, except for the period 1918-1990, when it was known as the "Soviet Union"
How does this make any sense? Did Russia cease to exist during the Soviet period? Didn't the Russian SFSR ever exist? When did Soviet Russia and Soviet Union become synonyms? Should tag ukraine be applied in the context of Soviet Ukraine?
For questions on German Empire, Weimar Republic, German Democratic Republic and the modern Federal Republic of Germany. Questions regarding the Third Reich should be tagged with nazi-germany.
So, what is the History SE policy on this? Embarrassing regimes that fought the U.S. and lost should have their own tags?
