The White House building stands on the banks of the Moskva River, towards the City district on the Krasnopresnen embankment. It was built in 1965–1979 according to the plans of architects Čečulin and Šteller. The building has always served government purposes, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the Russian parliament was located here. The Government of the Russian Federation has been based in the White House since 1994. In 1993, the White House became the center of anti-Shelcin resistance from the Russian parliament. Yeltsin broke his opponents only after he ordered the army to attack the building.
