Posted on October 5, 2006 by team


Today it is 13 years after people in Russia went on streets trying to get themselves more freedom in 1993.

But they failed.

This shots depict how it was:

    Well, they did actually succeed. Apparantly, you don’t know the history very well. It’s what happened afterwards that lead the country to what it became now. Yeltsin was happy to please the West and decided to have a non-stop drunken party and turned the country into chaos. Apparantly the West was pretty satisfied with that – we never heard as much critisism from them during that time as we do now when Putin is actually doing something for his country.

    It’s hard to say, since history is written by the victors.

    dRE,

    I`m 100% with you, the West’s main goal was a destruction of Russia (Soviet Union) once it was achieved they just forgot about it.
    Now, finally when Russia has some kind of order and also benefits from high prices for oil, gas and other raw materials, the West start screaming about human rights, totalitarian rule etc.
    I wonder where were all those critics when billions of dollars where stolen and transferred out of the country.
    …. and don’t blame oligarchs for all this – i know lots of people in US and Europe who directly benefited from privatization and illegal money transfers.

    So they did win!!!

    yeah, everyone in Western governments and corporations thinks for at least 10 hours a day on the ever-pressing subject “how to destroy Russia and gain control over its resources”. have you got any idea how ridiculously paranoid you are?

    the collapse of Soviet Union is one of the best things ever that happened to this region.

    They have a point that whenever Russia has something good happen the West cries about Human Rights. Whenever something bad happens we like to pity them and feel superior.

    Beslan school incident. In the west we felt ‘sorry’ for the Russians.
    Russian retaliation to the above. We condemned it as being ‘violent’.

    Whenever Russia is good, we cry. Whenever Russia is bad, we ‘cry’. There is no point denying this, it’s true and we all know it.

    But may be to add some more?

    34 ) Medicine and education degradation is a great thing two! Why should Russians have great science or doctors? They should just die slowly and send oil, what actually happens now.

    59) May be people dieing of no food because salary was delayed (sometimes for a few years) was another good thing?

    99) Does anyone know country named Turkmenistan? No? Why should you? That was a USSR territory also. A few months ago pension was cancelled there. This is the best thing that happened there EVER! Yes, their leader is quite smart. And I’m sure that as soon as he dies a new war will be started.

    100) 100s of millions lives were just… broken, by so may reasons…

    And I think people of Europe and US should be VERY happy because none of the nuclear weapons were stolen or sold to other countries (but that was quite possible according to what was happening during collapsing). Or there could be another really best thing, but this time for your region and it would be only “democracy’s world” fault, not USSR’s.

    “everyone in Western governments and corporations thinks for at least 10 hours a day on the ever-pressing subject “how to destroy Russia and gain control over its resources”.”

    steroid: No, actually they think on the subject “how to make more people in the world free”. Have you been using too many steroids lately?

  11. Doug says:

    Interesting shots. I noticed in the second photo that some people are wearing uniforms that look like they are from the Tsarist era. The photo of the BTR 70 and BMP near the Kremlin was most amazing to me, since I stood on that very spot years later – I remember we were a little lost and looking for the nearest METRO station or bus stop. I can remember walking right past that place.

    Black and white photos make things seem like they happened longer ago than they actually did.

  12. dRE says:

    Yeah, the second photo looks kinda weird… I’m doubt it’s from those events.

  13. Bloopy says:

    If they succeeded, the Russia today might’ve had colour photographs.

    What’s wrong with the legs of the man in the 7th photo? Burns, blood or dirty longjohns?

    Bravo Novak!

  17. Jipa says:

    Shame they didn’t. I don’t like at all the Russian politics nowadays.. And I also hate how it has been in the history. The country is simply WAYYYY too large to be ruled in any way. If you give ppl rights, it would most likely split apart and so on. Soviet union was even lager and I highly doubt there would have been ANY way to keep such a colossal “nation” in one piece.

    The struggle continues –
    Fellow in picture 1 looks like Mat-Rodina

  19. Valerovich says:

    democracy means nothing when means of subsistence are not affordable for most and the few hoard food which rots in pantries!

  20. brbrbr says:

    they not try “get more” freedom, just held pieces, incsripted in law and [todays]constitution.
