Moscow Government Building
The Russian White House, completed in 1981 after over 15 years' construction, was originally known as the House of Soviets. The White House first served as the home of the Supreme Soviet of the Russian Federation, a division within the USSR, before its dissolution in 1993.
 
Before the collapse of the Soviet Union, however, the White House saw future President Boris Yeltsin calling for troops and police to turn against party leaders in the wake of a coup attempt. Later, Yeltsin caused another stir at the White House by calling for the election of a new Duma, or Russian parliament.
 
In contemporary times, the building continues to hold government functions and offices, including one for the prime minister of Russia.
