ABSTRACT
The article explores the phases in Russia's upheaval after the attempted coup d'etat in August 1991 which ushered in a new stage in Russian and global politics. It examines the unmitigated political disintegration and reorganization of the country which began with the suspension of the Communist Party. It discusses the emergence of new social classes in conflict which began in the occurrence of rupture among the governing pro-capitalist sectors. The article also discusses the fragmentation of the labor movement and the political parties.
