Four, plus three or four Eastern Bloc that are not strictly FSU.

Good question.

Let see, Ukraine, Russia, Crimea.

I count Crimea as seperate, you will have to visit there to understand.

For clarification, these are the countries of the USSR:
Armenian SSR, Azerbaijan SSR, Byelorussian SSR, Estonian SSR, Georgian SSR, Kazakh SSR, Kirghiz SSR, Latvian SSR, Lithuanian SSR, Moldavian SSR, Russian SFSR, Tajik SSR, Turkmen SSR, Ukrainian SSR, Uzbek SSR.

On that basis I got 5 and I won't count Transniestria as it didn't exist as a state at the time of the USSR.
