End of Soviet Union anniversary passes without notice
Now 15 years later, no celebration or demonstration was held in Moscow."What's there to celebrate on this anniversary?" asked Natalia Kokoreva, a 60-year-old retiree in the Russian capital.
"With the fall of the USSR, my life went downhill," said Evgueni, 49, a Moscow street sweeper."Before, I lived well, I could go on vacation, I went to the mountains. Now I can't even go visit my brother in Tver," a city about 250 kilometers (155 miles) north of Moscow.
