You haven't been receiving the correct answers to your post.

The Soviet Union had a population of roughly 300,000,000 until its collapse in 1991. And since most westerners commonly associated Russia -- just one among multiple states that made up that mess -- with the USSR itself, it's an easy assumption to make.
