Black October ’93: Tanks in Moscow, Blood on Streets (RT Documentary)

In October 1993, Russia was on the brink of civil war. Deputies from the Supreme Soviet of Russia — the main legislative body in the country – were on one side and President Boris Yeltsin and his supporters on the other. In decree 1400, the president proclaimed that the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation and its deputies were to discontinue their legislative, administrative and executive functions. The deputies responded with a decree removing Yeltsin from the Presidency. This resulted in two days of street fighting, hundreds dead and injured.
