Love Amid the Ruins

For a few days in August 1991 the fate not just of the Soviet Union but potentially of the whole world hung in the balance. For the second time in Russian history — the first was not the Bolshevik putsch but the spontaneous popular uprising earlier in 1917 — the mass of the people opposed state pressure and won. But even then there were ominous signs of how things might go wrong under Boris Yeltsin.

That too is portrayed in Love Amid The Ruins.
