Last sentence, first paragraph[edit]

Changed from "Although the coup collapsed in only three days and Gorbachev returned to power, the event crushed the Soviet leader's hopes that the union could be held together in at least a decentralized form." to "Although the coup collapsed in only three days and Gorbachev returned to power, the event seriously undermined the legitimacy of the CPSU and ultimately contributed to the collapse of the Soviet Union", as the coup did not 'crush' Gorbachev's hopes of preserving the Union - Gorbachev continued to try and hold together a loose Union of states until December, when Yeltsin organised the Belovezh meeting and effectively dissolved the Soviet Union behind Gorbachev's back. However, what the coup was instrumental in doing, was sealing the fate of the CPSU, the legitimacy of which by then no-one, even its previously-ardent supporter Gorbachev, could uphold.

Albania, Angola, India, Laos and Sudan.[edit]

Were Albania, Angola, India, Laos and Sudan actually neutral during the coup d'etat attempt ? Did they really not support it? I find that hard to believe. More like Ethiopia than Angola. This is very useless, but I am done with this article.

Vladimir Putin actually is a defected KGB who oppose the coup[edit]
