The Security Council of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) (Russian: Совет Безопасности СССР) was formed in 1990. The head of this organ was the President of the Soviet Union; he had the power to elect all members of the council. Article 127.3 of the USSR Constitution stipulated that the president of the USSR led the Security Council, which would develop recommendations to implement the all-union policy on national defense, state security, economic and environmental security, coping with natural disasters and other emergencies, to ensure stability and legal order in Soviet society.[1]
