Congratulations! You have completed Lesson 2.
To learn about other perspectives on Russia’s transition from an authoritarian regime to democracy, find official websites of Russian politicians whose names Irina Khakamada mentions in her interview: Михаил Горбачев, Борис Ельцин, Егор Гайдар, Анатолий Чубайс and Геннадий Зюганов. Use Russian search engines such as www.rambler.ru, www.google.ru or www.yandex.ru. Look for any information on the Velvet Revolution, political and economic reforms, and State Duma elections. Analyze how the views of other politicians are similar to or different from those of Irina Khakamada.
