Best Answer

For long years after World War II, and during the beginnings of the Cold War, the Soviet Union experienced a severe shortage of food and many other domestic goods and products simply because of ravages of the war. The 'scorched earth' policies of Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union itself during the war led to widespread destruction throughout the entire western portion of the Soviet Union.
