A picture taken on September 22, 1993, shows  Russia's Vice-President Alexander Rutskoi (2nd L) and one of the Communist leaders Viktor Ampilov (R) attending a rally in front the Russian parliament building, also known as the White House, few days before the parliamentary revolt in Moscow. Russia marks the 20th anniversary of the bloody showdown in October 1993 between president Boris Yeltsin and parliament which ended in a tank assault on the rebels.
