That's the kind of great humor the Soviet Union was known for among those in the west who knew how it actually was behind that "Iron curtain".
It's a very healthy sign to be able to joke about your own country and it's leaders when they're useless tools. :-)

I had a Russian classmate about my age at university in the late -90's, after the Sovet Union was dissolved.
But some way or another his father had managed to bring his family to the west during the Soviet era so he had grown up in Sweden and he told a lot of jokes like that from the Soviet Union.
