Советская Россия (Soviet Russia), Thursday, 16 August 1990

This daily newspaper was the “Organ of the Central Committee of the USSR, and the Supreme Soviet and Council of Ministers the Russian Federal Soviet Socialist Republic.” The lead editorial on the left dispenses moral advice, and photographs celebrate an abundant and efficient harvest. One of the future plotters of the August 1991 coup attempt, Gennadii Yanaev, is interviewed about “Perestroika and the External World.”
