Best Answer

The Russian Empire changed its name to the Russian Socialist Federal Soviet Republic (RSFSR) in July 1918. It did not simply change its name to the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. The USSR came about in December 1922, when the RSFSR joined with Ukraine, Belorussia and the Transcaucasus Federation to form the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
