Moscow Uprising of 1993

Post by NazBol on Mon Nov 10, 2014 2:46 pm

The Moscow Uprising of 1993 was a political stand-off between the capitalist "president" Yeltsin and the patriotic-oriented Russians that was resolved by using military force. Russian communists and Russian nationalists fight together against liberal-capitalist regime. Eduard Limonov participated in the Uprising on the patriotic side.



The relations between the "president" and the parliament had been deteriorating for some time. The constitutional crisis reached a tipping point on September 21, 1993, when President Boris Yeltsin aimed to dissolve the country's legislature (the Congress of People's Deputies and its Supreme Soviet), although the president did not have the power to dissolve the parliament according to the constitution. Yeltsin used the results of the referendum of April 1993 to justify his actions. In response, the parliament declared that the president's decision was null and void, impeached Yeltsin and proclaimed vice president Aleksandr Rutskoy to be acting president.

The situation deteriorated at the beginning of October. On October 3, demonstrators removed police cordons around the parliament and, urged by their leaders, took over the Mayor's offices and tried to storm the Ostankino television centre. The army, which had initially declared its neutrality, by Yeltsin's orders stormed the Supreme Soviet building in the early morning hours of October 4, and arrested the leaders of the resistance. Hundreds of defenders were mowed down by automatic gunfire and the building was shelled by Yeltsin’s tanks in what has come to be known in Russia as “Black October.”

Glory to heroes and martyrs of 1993!
Eternal infamy to Yeltsin!
