The Communist Party of the Soviet Union was the founding and ruling political party of the Soviet Union. The party was founded in 1912 by the Bolsheviks, a revolutionary group led by Vladimir Lenin. The party was dissolved in 1991 on Soviet territory soon after a failed coup d'état and was completely outlawed two months later in Russian territory.
