With the USSR already breaking up, CSKA Moscow won the Supreme League in 1991, and Rotor Volgograd the First League. The Second League was broken up into three zones, the winners being Asmaral Moscow (Central), Okean Nakhodka (East) and Karpaty Lvov (West). The Third League was divided into 10 Zones – The Last winners of Armenia (Syunik Kapan), Azerbaijan (Kazar Sumgait) and Ukraine (Neftyanik Aktyrka) as parts of the USSR or Russia were decided that year.

There were also two Central Asian Zones which would soon gain independence as five separate countries: Uzbek/Turkmen/Tadzhik Zone won by Traktor Tashkent and a Kazakh/Kirghiz Zone won by Aktyubinets Aktybinsk. The Siberian Zone was won by Lokomotiv Chita and the four European Russia Zones won by Zhemchuzhina Sochi, Spartak Anapa Rubin Kazan and Prometey Dynamo Sankt Peterburg.

With Georgia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania already independent and running their own leagues, the USSR Football system would break up fully at the end of the year along with Communist Europe itself. The only league which geographically belongs here of those Nations is Georgia, which was won by Iberiya.
