The Soviet news program “TV Inform,” replaced the regularly scheduled Soviet news program, reportedly for the first time in 23 years. The newscast “TV Inform” carried the news on the day’s events in the Soviet Union, including coverage of the Soviet parliament. During the parliament session, Soviet President Gorbachev criticized Russian President Yeltsin’s retention of central powers of the state which he acquired during the failed coup by Communist hard-liners. In addition, representatives from the Soviet government flew to Ukraine to urge Ukrainian leaders to retain some form of unity with the main Soviet administration. The announcer for “TV Inform” said the country was entering a new world, and the dictatorship of television ended with the failed coup. Translation from Russian is by voice-over. close
