The practical significance of experience of national conflicts in 1987-1991 for china: as part of the idea of “harmony and diversity”

Xinxin Zhang

The Soviet Union was a multinational socialist community. The development of a comprehensive national power largely depends on the harmonious development of all peoples. However, there were huge problems inside the USSR. However, national issues have always been a huge hidden danger inside the USSR. By the time M.S. Gorbachev came to power, various crises had ripened, among which national problems were especially relevant. In 1991, the Union republics presented their claims for independence, which directly pushed the Soviet Union closer to its end. The question: “were Soviet national issues the cause of the collapse of the USSR?” provokes heated discussions around the world. Soviet, Chinese and foreign scientists were divided on this issue. Chinese traditional philosophy seeks the idea of “harmony”, with the help of which we can reconsider national conflicts in the Soviet Union and study its practical significance of experience for the modern development of China.
