Moscow, February 1992: Russian riot police try to maintain order at a pro-Communist rally near the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Red Square. Before the day was over, 10 police officers and several demonstrators were injured in clashes that were described as the most violent since the fall of the Soviet Union. The demonstration, sparked by a rapid decline in living conditions, was witnessed by a Stars and Stripes team that was in Moscow to talk with recipients of American food aid brought in by U.S. military airlifts.
