Russian TV yesterday showed a brief clip of President Boris Yeltsin’s meeting in the Kremlin with Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin. Yeltsin, making his first public appearance for three weeks, looked frail but alert. His spokesman said the president spent three hours in the Kremlin yesterday and may return later this week, but Yeltsin’s doctors said he is still not well enough to return to work full time.
