NotesNews : President Yeltsin today squares up for his second bruising encounter this week with the opposition-led parliament, which is expected again to throw out his nomination for Prime Minister. As the Kremlin leader's allies prepared for another acrimonious session in the Duma, the Communist dominated lower house of Parliament, the rouble hit a new low of 17.5 to the US dollar. The economic jitters were caused in large part by the continued paralysis in Russia, where the appointment of Viktor Chernomydrin was blocked on Monday by the Communists and their allies.
