In the USSR trolleybus was an electric bus that draws power from dual overhead wires (generally suspended from roadside posts) using spring-loaded trolley poles. Two wires, and two trolley poles, were required to complete the electrical circuit. With the collapse of the Soviet Union, trolleybuses began to rapidly lose its relevance.

Trolleybus and tram stations began to close throughout the former USSR countries. The process was gradual, but somehow imperceptibly trolleybuses became less and less common on the roads of the cities.
