Krasnopresnenskaya Embankment, Moscow

The Russian White House is located on the Krasnopresnenskaya embankment and serves as the primary office of the Russian Government and Russian Prime Minister. I have a lot of student’s memories about this place. I remember during the 1991 coup, I was there all night, guarding the government of Boris Yeltsin from the possible plotters attacks. I remember 2 years later, Boris Yeltsin has ordered to besiege the parliament entrenched in the White House. And I remember the tanks shooting at the White House, just off of the bridge. Sad memories. But fortunately it is all over and I can shoot wonderful evening panorama of the magnificent Moscow cityscape from the same bridge.
