In the 1960s, the Soviet Union created one of the largest bodies in the world named the Aral Sea. The body of water really helped with farming in the area but now it's drying up.

The Soviets didn't make the Aral Sea - the Aral Sea formed about 5 million years ago. Hell, the Russians Navy had ships on it in 1847.

Seriously...took me 30 seconds of wiki to find that.

styopa in fact what they do was kill the Aral sea.In the early 1960s, the Soviet government decided the two rivers that fed the Aral Sea, the Amu Darya in the south and the Syr Darya in the east, would be diverted to irrigate the desert, in an attempt to grow rice, melons, cereals, and cotton.

styopa,
I spent another 30 seconds on it and found the soviets built rivers leading to agricultural land from it in the 60s. It has been drying up since then. Also google it. The pictures here are all from when its almost gone. It looks massive in a picture from 1989.
