The extensive coverage of the Salisbury nerve agent attacks, and
of the subsequent diplomatic expulsions, has made absolutely no
mention of the coup orchestrated by the drunkard political
opportunist Boris Yeltsin.

The treachery of Yeltsin and his two sidekicks continues to exact
a staggering toll. On 13 December 2016, BBC News broadcast a truly
fascinating interview with Mikhail Gorbachev on the 25th anniversary
of the treacherous coup that led to his resignation and the
dissolution of the Soviet Union. Segments of the interview are at

This treacherous coup should always be mentioned when its tragic
consequences are reported.

consequences are reported.
Contemporary reports claimed it was a countercoup.

So what really happened?

In December 1991, Yeltsin orchestrated the treacherous coup that
deposed Gorbachev. Are you thinking of the coup/countercoup of
August 1991?
