NotesNews - President Yeltsin made a nationwide televised appeal to the Russian people yesterday for the support over his decision to dismiss his entire Government and reappoint Viktor Chernomydrin as Prime Minister only five months after casting him aside. Mr. Yeltsin said the depth of Russia's economic crisis had made it crucial to sack the Government of Sergei Kiriyenko and bring back an experienced political 'heavyweight' who also had the qualities to run as his successor in the 2000 presidential election.
