YELTSIN GETS BACKING FROM DEFENSE COMPLEX.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 2 Issue: 72
Although details were scanty, presidential candidate Boris Yeltsin reportedly won the political support of defense chiefs from Russia’s military industrial complex who gathered yesterday at the Energomash rocket engine plant. In return for a promise of state support for defense enterprises in domestic and foreign markets, the participating defense industrialists issued a statement saying that "a change of power under current conditions looks not only unreasonable, but dangerous to us… We should back incumbent President Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin."
