"Let's not talk about Communism. Communism was just an idea, just pie in the sky." - Quote by Boris Yeltsin, 1989

The Soviet dream is dead. Boris Yeltsin, pursuer of democracy turned President of the Russian Federation, waves to passers-by in cardboard cut-out form. Gorbachev is already long forgotten. A bronze statue of Stalin which has been toppled from its plinth lies decaying on a lawn. Muzeon Park has become a graveyard for statues and the ghosts of those whose star has waned. This is Moscow post-glasnost and the perestroika reforms. Moscow from 1991 onwards, just after the beginning of the end.

The city is somewhat stunned by the chaos and by these strange new bedfellows – the crumbling remnants of Soviet economics and market forces. Collective and individual destinies rub shoulders. Two sirens – communism and global capitalism – still watch each other intently.

Extract from the preface by Bastien Manac'h from Polka
