Which Countries Were In The Soviet Union?

I initially tried to keep this article as short as possible, but I quickly realised that there is no easy answer “Which Countries Were In The Soviet Union?”. Reason being is that there were so many regions that either no longer exist or have been combined and/or split into other regions that there is no simple answer.
