    Former Russian leader Boris Yeltsin dies

    link


    MOSCOW - Former President Boris Yeltsin, who hastened the collapse of the Soviet Union by scrambling atop a tank to rally opposition against a hard-line coup and later pushed Russia to embrace democracy and a market economy, died Monday at age 76. Kremlin spokesman Alexander Smirnov confirmed Yeltsin's death, and Russian news agencies cited Sergei Mironov, head of the presidential administration's medical center, as saying the former president died Monday of heart failure at the Central Clinical Hospital.

    Bye bye Boris. you'll be remembered, in this small mind at least, for having nominated the deeply troubling person of Vladimir Putin as your replacement.

    RIP Boris. I'll always remember him standing on a tank trying to end the coup attempt. And his avid tennis playing, lol.
