On October 4, 1993, tanks fired at the White House to end the most severe political crisis in post-Soviet Russia. The two-week standoff between the president and the parliament, which culminated in a three-day armed struggle, saw over 100 people dead. Police, military and civilians were killed, with none of the politicians involved in the power struggle among the victims. http://rt.com/news/parliament-siege-yeltsin-timeline-691/
