August 21, 1989 | MIKHAIL POLTORANIN, Mikhail Poltoranin, a people's deputy of the Soviet Union, is a member of the coordinating council of the Inter-Regional Caucus. His commentary was supplied by the Novosti Press Agency.
When Boris N. Yeltsin made an official statement before the Supreme Soviet about the creation of the Inter-Regional Caucus of People's Deputies, some members questioned our timing and our patriotism. The advocates of "monolithic unity" say that we are trying to split the 2,250-strong Congress of People's Deputies. We are against a split, but we are for a democratic parliament in which deputies are not pawns in the Kremlin's game.
