Who on this list sees *only* benefits from USSR imperialism from Eastern Europe?

(The only places where I see net benefits from USSR imperialism are Afghanistan (Najibullah better than Taliban), Angola (Jonas Savimibi is bad news), and Mozambique (almost anyone better than RENAMO). Everywhere else, I think the people would have been better off if the rulers of the USSR had simply never heard of the place...)
