In June 1971 the world was divided into two opposing ideologies, capitalism and communism. The Western bloc of capitalist nations was separated from the Eastern bloc of communists by a geographic line drawn north-south through Europe called the Iron Curtain. It was a Cold War. Both sides were hesitant to risk all-out nuclear holocaust, so they fought instead small hot wars in places like Korea and Vietnam, where the two blocs, led by the United States and Russia, struggled by proxy for world domination. The entire planet lived in fear that some incident would break the stalemate and unleash nuclear winter across our globe…Through this perfect historical window stepped His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada, determined to spread his ancient message of peace to both camps. Prabhupada arrived in Russia on June 20, 1971, and the short time he spent there could rightly be called five days that changed the world.
