MOSCOW'91 Throw Pillow

$29.00

At dawn on Aug. 19, 1991, Soviet citizens woke to the announcement on radio and TV that an Emergency Committee had been formed to govern the country. For several hours, state-controlled airwaves went dead — except for a continuous loop of the ballet “Swan Lake” that played for hours and hours.

5 months later came the collapse of the USSR.

For inhabitants of the post-Soviet space, Swan Lake became a symbol of the 1991 coup d'état.
