The tunnel under Novy Arbat Street (formerly Kalinin Avenue) and the Garden Ring (Tchaikovsky Tunnel) was the site of the death of three people on the night of the 20th to the 21st of August, 1991, when the attackers brought tanks into the White House to Moscow. Three young people Dmitry Komar, Ilya Krichevsky and Vladimir Usov died blocking the way to armored personnel carriers. They were awarded the Order of the Hero of the USSR by the then President of the USSR M. Gorbachev, then the first reward of the defender of the fatherland of free Russia B. Yeltsin and presented to the awards during the Putin era. All awards are awarded posthumously. On August 21, the morning after their death, General Yazov ordered the withdrawal of troops from the city. This date is considered the end of the events of the 1991 communist coup of the State Emergency Committee. Translated with Google Translate

List of routes including this place
Evgeny Praisman
Moscow City, Arbat, Alexander Garden and Red Square.

The route consists of three different districts of Moscow that are completely different from each other. City is modernity, offices, high-rise glass skyscrapers and the atmosphere of a business center in the super modern Western style. Arbat - old and new - is a window into the hysterical and Soviet past of the city. Alexander Garden and Red Square are the heart of Moscow. The route can be divided into three separate parts, and you can visit them a full day. Translated with Google Translate
