Quite true. The USSR was a Socialist Republic ruled by a national Communist Party but was not socialist nor communist nor a republic (an entity of the people, i.e. those of no special status within society).

The Marxist Russian Social Democratic Labour Party [what a mouthful] only named itself the  All-Russian Communist Party in 1918 after seizing state power .
