21 years since the coup of 1993 that brought the oligarchs to full power in Russia. Up to 2,000 people were killed in the streets of Moscow as the working class offered last ditch opposition.

Coup and counterrevolution.

I see that those 'damned Transnistrians' pitched in to the battle...

Very important events, and what is happening in Ukraine is one of the many things that is still the 'working out' of this coup.

I would be interested in finding out more about the years immediately before the coup, and how it came about.
