The first page: a week before the collapse

Nostalgically or out of interest invites you to look through the Russian press. Such as it was 24 years ago. In this issue - Komsomolskaya Pravda, Arguments and Facts, Sport-Express, Izvestia and Moskovsky Komsomolets, Kommersant and Nezavisimaya Gazeta.
Sport-Express is perhaps one of the few newspapers that does not react to what is happening in the world. All their time of existence, they are devoted only to sport and nothing more. Not a single playful note, caption or photo. Oh, sport - you are life! And the country will wait.

The newspaper "Pravda" of the last forces trying to save the country, but too late.
