Person DepictedYeltsin; Boris
NotesNews : Communist bears flexed their political muscles in crisis torn Russia yesterday and forced beleagured Boris Yeltsin to bow to their demands. He fired two of his key reformers and his government agreed to revive old style Soviet politics, The moves were aimed at halting the economic and political chaos which has plunged Russia into turmoil. But they also signalled the start of an ominous power struggle between reformers and the old guard. [Neil Syson, The Sun, 29 August 1998]
