Communist parliamentarian Viktor Ilyukhin has temporarily dropped his campaign for President Yeltsin’s ouster and is instead trying to get the president to dismiss controversial billionaire Boris Berezovsky from his post as deputy secretary of Russia’s Security Council. Ilyukhin alleges that Berezovsky did not give up his business activities after his appointment and is using public office to enhance his financial interests. Ilyukhin says he can prove his charges and will give his evidence to the Duma. (Interfax, February 18)
