They gained a very large Military due to the Build up they did in WW2. They also gained many of the natiosn that would be known as making up the USSR.

Gains were obvious and their power grew. Still, consider that by victory, the Communist System was seen as having been "proven superior" to capitalism. In the long run, this may have greatly delayed the realization that Communism is only superior either on paper or in a society of perfect people. So Russia today has lost all those years that could have been better spend developing economic strength and independence chasing a failed concept.

Sortof ironic really.
