About Boris Yeltsin

Did you know about Boris Yeltsin?


On 15 May 1999 Yeltsin survived another attempt of impeachment this time by the democratic and communist opposition in the State Duma.

It seems he has for a minute for a second for half a minute forgotten that Russia has a full arsenal of nuclear weapons.

He vowed to transform Russia's socialist command economy into a free market economy and implemented economic shock therapy price liberalization and privatization programs. 5% of voters in favour.
