  1. There’s a good tradition in Russia: you say something nice about the dead person or you say nothing.

    Thus, I remain silent.


    The Legacy of Boris Yeltsin

    • Folls, he was a good man. He helped cccp to collapse. He made big changes. Treat a dead man with respect. He done more in his life than you ever will.

    • Stalin had the church blown up in the ’30’s. He had a swimming pool installed in it’s place. It was rebuild in the ’90’s.

  2. Amazing; and it was constructed in less than ten years. Interestingly, it seems Yeltsin himself was involved in its construction. Just when I thought nobody built proper churches anymore! Wow…

  3. Yeltsin was a great leader.

    When the hardliners wanted to get Gorbachev at his summer house the captian of the Odessa landed the marines to project him.

  4. When I was learning Russian, we loved Yeltsin….he spoke so slowly and clearly and often made grammatical errors in key moments.

  5. I am glad that Boris Yeltsin lived at the same time as I.

    I don’t know how “good” of a leader he was. I do not “know” that he drank too much vodka. I was not there at the time so how can I know?

    I must take the images I have seen and the words I have heard from differing points of view with the good faith that not all these proponents are lying.

    When I saw the shells exploding on the Parliament (sorry, the Duma?) I was very concerned that something large and malevolent had been unleashed and that the situation would soon spiral out of control. But then the most natural yet most overlooked thing happened: a man stood up.

    For the sake of us all, we should all stand up.

  6. ohhh the blonde soldier in pic 4 is banging hot..does anyone have his phone number???? BTW I will miss Mr Yeltsin, he was a cool guy, come on you gotta be cool to be drunk all the time
