Discussion in 'Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, & the former Soviet Repu' started by w-inds., May 4, 2012.
they were separate members in United Nations
why didn't they join FIFA?
Their membership in the UN was an exception (Stalin requested it as a pre-condition to USSR joining the UN as a founding member). Besides, membership in UN and membership in FIFA were never meant to be one-to-one.
Why did Stalin insist on that?
If I were to guess, he wanted to expand socialist camp's representation (especially given the sacrifice made by the two republics in the WWII)
Makes perfect sense.
He wanted more votes in UN so he split them up. His men sat in these positions always.
