Heroes of the 90s is a book composed by journalists of the newspaper Kommersant. The book sheds light on the transformation of the USSR and the country's social, state, financial, economic and civic institutions into a new state - the Russian Federation. The book covers Russia's first decade as a new country, the turbulent 90s that formed Russia's reality today. The book revisits the storming of the White House, the allocation of vouchers in attempts to set up a new economy of private ownership, Boris Yeltsin and the Chechen wars, hired killers, Ponzi schemes and financial crises, Boris Berezovsky, Anatoly Chubais and others. The book is based on facts and testimonies from those who lived through the era, many of whom share their stories with the world for the first time. Heroes of the 90s offers to the western reader, for the first time in history, a rare opportunity to learn about the developments in the post-Soviet Russia from the perspectives of the Russian journalists who have spent years investigating the ups and downs of the period. Translated by Huw Davies.
