20 years, the collapse of the Soviet Union: Union collapsed, Yeltsin and sober woman “Optima”

December 8, 1991 the leaders of Russia, Belarus and Ukraine in the Bialowieza Forest Agreement signed by the legendary “The creation of the Commonwealth of Independent States“, marked the collapse of the USSR. On the 20th anniversary anniversary media resemble the official chronicle of the events and publish a public unknown eyewitness accounts of what happened on the farm Viskuli historic meeting of Boris Yeltsin, Stanislav Shushkevich and Leonid Kravchuk.

Thus, the ex-director of the reserve in an interview to “Rossiyskaya Gazeta” refuted the myth that the agreement consisted of three ‘Slavic bison “supposed” to excite “. A former secretary of Kamenyuki, which in his native village is jokingly called a “woman, lounging Power,” told how to type “Optima”, to print all the talks the leaders of the three republics, including the text of the Agreement.

In anticipation of the date of sociologists conducted a public opinion poll found that while most Russians believe that the collapse of the Soviet Union could have been avoided, few respondents in favor of restoring the Union in the same format.

Official news events

As recalled by the magazine “Power”, in Bialowieza agreement stated that “the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics as a subject of international law and geopolitical reality no longer exists.” This phrase subsequently gave rise to charges in killing of three leaders of the Union State. In fact, the newspaper writes, they are only summarized the irreversible process that began in the late 1980s.

As the “Official Gazette”, “the Soviet Union collapsed because of the fact that the period of political turbulence has coincided with the accumulation of a critical mass of social and economic problems that delayed many years.” A large part of the nomenclature after updating Gorbachev and the Politburo of the CPSU Central Committee remained detached from the life of a caste who did not want and do not know how to predict the political and economic processes. In such circumstances, the leaders of the three Slavic republics had only to “fix the state’s death from a rapidly progressing paralysis and inoperability of bureaucratic structures,” the newspaper notes.

The first disturbing evidence of the coming collapse of the country came during the so-called “parade of sovereignties” from 1988 to 1990. In March 1990 Lithuania declared its first independent state. The Soviet leadership has attempted to preserve the country, but all in vain. March 17, 1991 was all-Union referendum in which 76.4% of citizens voted for the “preservation of the USSR as a renewed federation of equal sovereign republics.” Vote boycotted by the Baltic States, Moldova, Armenia and Georgia. In April of withdrawal of the Soviet Union informed the Georgian authorities.

In the same month at a meeting of Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and the heads of the nine republics had agreed to prepare a union contract providing for transforming the country into a federal union of sovereign states (SSG). Signing a document picked putsch putsch.
