Участие российских республик в Новоогарёвском процессе (апрель-август 1991 г.)
The article discusses the participation of the republics within Russia in the process of drafting a new Union Treaty in April-August 1991, which went down in history as the Novo-Ogarevo process. The problems of relations between the Union republics and their former autonomies during this process are analyzed. Materials of periodicals and documents of the Congress of people's deputies of the USSR and RSFSR are involved. In conclusion, the author draws a conclusion about the regularity of support by the leadership of the Russian republics of the future actions of the State Committee on the State of Emergency. This Committee, unlike Boris Yeltsin and even by that time Mikhail Gorbachev, was able, in their opinion, to support the further expansion of the powers of the Russian republics.
