Moscow memorial rally for victims of Yeltsin’s 1993 October coup

On October 3 at 18.00 in Moscow, at the national memorial to the defenders of the House of Soviets near “Krasnaya Presnya” stadium (Druzhinnikovskaya Street, Metro station “Krasnopresnenskaya), a rally will be held in memory of the victims of Boris Yeltsin’s 1993 coup.

Twenty-three years ago in Moscow, a coup under the leadership of former Russian President Yeltsin ended in the bloody suppression of a popular uprising, tanks shelling the parliament – the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation – and the liquidation of the vestiges of Soviet democracy.
