NotesNews: Russia's political map was torn up and redrawn
yesterday as President Boris Yeltsin unambiguously named Viktor Chernomydrin as his
preffered succesor and parliament moved to claim radically enlarged sovereign powers. In a
humbling moment that may mark the start of a gradual withdrawal from the helm of state, Mr
Yeltsin appeared on national television to heap praise on Mr Chernomydrin, whom he abruptly
sacked as prime minister five months ago and was forced to reinstate. [James Meek, the
Guardian, 25 August 1998]
