Even though the Berlin Wall had come down, the USSR had not fully dissolved until 1991. At that point in history, Russia was still part of the USSR.

I guess when that book came out in September 1990 makes sense then. ???

I just read it today and it seems like the wall had come down, but I assure they didn't start calling it Russia, until later?

You have to keep in mind that East Berlin East Germany were never officially part of the USSR. The USSR was made-up of Russia and 14 other republics but East Germany was not one of them.

I never knew that.
