Don't worry he'll soon fall
Person DepictedYeltsin; Boris
NotesNews : Russia's political map was torn up and redrawn yesterday as Presidnet Boris Yeltsin unambiguously named Viktor Chernomyrdrin as his prefered successor 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 Chernomyrdin whom he abruptly sacked as Prime Minister five months ago and has been forced to reinstate.
