The RUSSIA EXPO hosted a presentation of the book "Horsemen of the Apocalypse. History of the State and Law of Soviet Russia 1917-1922" written by Pavel Krasheninnikov, a politician, famous lawyer and professor.

The author introduces readers to little-known historical facts and previously unpublished archival documents, clearly builds a chain of events that led to the collapse of the monarchy and historical cataclysms.

The book "Horsemen of the Apocalypse. History of the State and Law of Soviet Russia 1917-1922" is the fifth one in a series published by the author. In the previous books, he tells about the emergence and development of the Russian state and law from the tribal unions of ancient Rus' to the beginning of the XX century.

"This is already my fifth book published together with the Eksmo publishing house. In this book I handle the material through the characters of John the Theologian, show what is happening through the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse - Plague, War, Famine and Death, and how society experienced it all," emphasized Pavel Krasheninnikov.

He also touched on the topic of the next book in the series.

"Each of my books is a continuation of the previous one. If there is information and documents, I expect to focus the next book on the period from 1923 to 1938," Pavel Krasheninnikov said.

Candidate of Historical Sciences and Doctor of Law, Professor Sergei Stepashin, Director of the National Center for Historical Memory under the President of Russia Elena Malysheva, publicist Yegor Kholmogorov, blogger, TV presenter Ruslan Ostashko and editor-in-chief of Readovka Alexei Kostylev also took part in the presentation of the book.

"This is a very interesting book. I am lucky - I read all of Pavel's books in primary sources, while they were still manuscripts. I recommend to read this book - it is the elimination of a serious gap in the history of our country. Besides, Pavel Krasheninnikov writes at the intersection of history and law. The book has a good literary language, good images, characters. It is a kind of literary documentary," Stepashin said.

Sergei Vadimovich also noted that the period of 1917-1922 should be discussed more often with the younger generation of Russians.

"This book is only the first step in this direction. Our President Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin said for the first time, very carefully, but with bitterness: what is happening now between Russia and Ukraine is very similar to the Civil War. Of course, we need to talk about this period. But to talk honestly," added Sergei Stepashin.

Throughout the entire period of the Exposition, guests can look forward to cultural events, a rich business and educational program.
