Abstract On 8 December 1991, three of the Soviet republics (Russia, Ukraine and Belarus) signed the Belovezha Accords, which signified the end of the Soviet Union. The Accords also signified the birth of Russia as an independent state. For Boris Yeltsin, president of Russia and one of the signatories, the Accords became a political encumbrance, not least because he was accused of having signed away territory in Belovezha. There was an early degree of ambiguity as to whether Russia was a new independent state, an heir or even a continuation of the Soviet Union.
