Russia: 13 Years Ago

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Freedom of Speech, Governance, History, Human Rights, Politics, Protest, War & Conflict

Sean's Russia Blog marks the 13th anniversary [1] of “Boris Yeltsin’s military suppression of the Supreme Soviet”: “Despite what anyone says about Putin, even poor Russians prefer Russia now than what it was when Yeltsin was lobbing shells at the White House. Plus Putin has made it acceptable to appreciate the good things that came out of the Soviet system without being shamed and without it meaning you necessarily want the USSR’s return.”
