The ideology of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was Marxism–Leninism, an ideology of centralised, planned economy and a vanguardist one-party state, which was the dictatorship of the proletariat. The Soviet Union's ideological commitment to achieving communism included the development Socialism in One Country and peaceful coexistence with capitalist countries, while engaging in anti-imperialism to defend the international proletariat, combat capitalism, and promote the goals of communism. The state ideology of the Soviet Union—and thus Marxism–Leninism—derived and developed from the theories, policies, and political praxis of Lenin and Stalin. After the death of the latter the process of de-Stalinization of the Soviet Union changed the practice of the state ideology.
