Russian president Boris Yeltsin met his top aide Viktor Ilyushin on Thursday for their second session in as many days, a presidential spokesman said. Ilyushin is the only adviser allowed to see Yeltsin since the 64-year-old Russian leader was taken to hospital a week ago after suffering a mild heart attack.
