FELDBRUGGE Professor of Law, University of Leiden The present Constitution of the USSR was adopted on 8 October 19771 and remained in force virtually unchanged until 1988. An English . translation was published in this journal2 and this translation was also included in other volumes published by the Documentation Office for East European Law.3 3 ' A minor amendment was introduced in 1981,4 allowing the inclusion of other members of the USSR Council of Ministers, apart from the prime ministers and his (first) deputies, in the Presidium of the USSR Council of Ministers. It was only in the wake of perestroika that major constitutional re- forms were set in motion. Or to be more exact, the constitutional amendments of 1988 and subsequent years were themselves a major aspect of the political dimension of perestroika.
