This review is dedicated to relevant diabetes mellitus-related aspects in several European countries that emerged after the breakup of the Soviet Union. After more than two decades of existence, these countries significantly differ according to their economic standing, demographic parameters, as well as presence, speed, and orientation of healthcare reforms (Table 11.1). The former "Soviet republics" that prior to 1991 had similar socioeconomic characteristics and identical healthcare system are now independent Eastern European and Baltic states that belong to different socioeconomic and political communities.
