What does "shouting scorn" mean in:
86 years before Boris Yeltsin stood on a tank in Moscow in 1991, shouting scorn for a coup attempt, Russians marched to the Winter Palace to present petitions to the Tsar.
What I understand is something like this:
Russians marched to the Winter Palace to give petitions to the Tsar. 86 years after that, in 1991; Boris Yeltsin shouted "I feel contempt for any attempt to change the government" while he was standing on a tank.
