Russian help needed. PLEASE!

This isn't a tennis matter, but it is a question about Russia and where better to ask. .
I'm doing a project in college on the politics of the early 20th century (its a VERY boring project). Anyway, I got to the 'Russia section' in a book, and it mentioned 2 words and it didn't explain what they meant, and I have no idea.
The words are:
Duma
Kremlin
What do they mean?
Any help would be very much apprieciated .

Bezza,
very precise description. Historically, kremlin was meant to be a
fortress of fully-functional town - with cathedral, governmental
structures and some other facilities.

In this context I guess word "Kremlin" means executive authority.
