    In early October 1993, there was a major stand-off between the supporters of Russian President Boris Yeltsin, who was backed by the Council of Ministers (Government), and the leaders of the Supreme Soviet (Parliament), supported by most People’s Deputies (Members of Parliament). The Supreme Soviet’s supporters began to stage protests, and barricades were built on the streets of Moscow. Photo: October 3, 1993. Parliament supporters on the Garden Ring.
