  5. Back to the U.S.S.R.?, the special photo essay by the TIME Magazine.
    "After the failed 1991 coup by hard-line practitioners of a dying Communist system, President Boris Yeltsin missed his opportunity to set Russia on a truly democratic path. He might have used his triumph to provide a clean break with a Communist culture that taught and required individuals to subsume their interests to the state's. He might have begun the process of teaching Russian citizens to handle their new-found power as a responsible electorate. He might have created a true reformist party to tap the enthusiasm for democracy that has now waned, a victim of crime, corruption and the emptiness of spirit felt today by the Russian people. He did not. As a former Communist party leader, Yeltsin my have had personal misgiving at striking the Lenin cult at the roots, but as a result, Russia seems stuck today between its communist past and an undetermined, but impending future".
