I have to write an essay on this topic:

What were the factors that played a significant role in the collapse of Russian control over Eastern Europe?

This is my answer:
One of the main factors that contributed to the fall of the collapse of the Russian control in Eastern Europe was the common hatred of a system that was dishonest and coercive on people's rights.
There were several reasons why the communist system failed in Eastern Europe, one being that the communist system was disliked by a great majority of people in eastern Europe because eastern Europe was multi cultural and ethnic whereas the communist system did not recognize that and was controlled by Russia itself. The regimes of Eastern Europe never had control over their respective countries. Communism did not allow compromise and its system was strictly enforced by terror and control.
The Russians tried to prop up an essentially fragile system by installing Russian controlled local leaders. These leaders were in turn supported by Russian subsidies both economically and in military terms. This system placed a vast strain on the Russian economy that in turn depended on fright and authority to run its citizens.
