Boris Yeltsin

The Prime Minister’s Official Spokesman (PMOS) gave journalists some words from the Prime Minister regarding the death of former President Boris Yeltsin. The Prime Minister said that:

"It is with sadness that I learned of the death of former President Yeltsin. He was a remarkable man who saw the need for democratic and economic reform, and in defending it, played a vital role at a crucial time in Russia’s history".

Asked if it was likely that the Prime Minister would attend a state funeral, the PMOS replied that we would take events one step at a time.
