What did Boris Yeltsin do during the August Coup?

He initially avoided being caught up in the coup, and instead took refuge in the Russian White House (the seat of the provincial Parliament) while tanks took control of the Kremlin. Then at a crucial moment, a group of tanks arrived at the building and Yeltsin came out, climbed onto a tank, and made a speech that declared the coup was illegal and the people of Moscow must come out to oppose it. The news spread around the city and 50,000 protestors turned up at the White House in support of Yeltsin. The coup plotters backed away from attacking the building, realising it would result in carnage. As a result, they gave up and Gorbachev was released.
