U.S. Communist Dies In Russia

Michael Davidow, an American Communist journalist, has died at age 83, the Russian Communist Party said Sunday.

The party said he died Wednesday but did not give the cause of death.

Davidow, who had lived in Moscow for the past 13 years, was a correspondent for the American Communist Party newspaper People’s Weekly World.

During the showdown between President Boris Yeltsin and hard-line parliament members in 1993, Davidow sided with the hard-liners and remained inside the Russian parliament building while it was blasted by tanks, the party statement said.
