NotesArtwork not dated. News : Yegar Gaidar, the Russian governments leading monetarist will remain in place and so will his tough reform programme, President Boris Yeltsin said yesterday. Giving his first public analysis of last weeks shock election results in which 24 % voted for the Far Right, the President admitted, "People's patience is exhausted". But he vowed to continue with the same team and the same policies. Mr Yeltsin acknowledged that the government had to find a balance between controlling inflation and helping "people who suffer". But in a remark that will delight the monetarisits and western governments, he said the fight against inflation had priority. [Jonathon Steele, 23rd December 1993, The Guardian] News : Events in Bosnia took another bloody turn fo the worse last night as peace talks ended without progress, violence threatened a Christmas truce and humanitarian supplies were blocked. In Brussels Lord Owen, meditating on behalf of the European Union, said three way talks had ended without settlement, despite last minute pressure would lead to a deal before the holiday. Serbs and Croats had been reported to be close to an agreement on a three way carve up, but the Muslim government was holding out for more territory.
