YELTSIN SLAMS U.S. FOR FAILING TO SUPPORT REFORMS.
Publication: Monitor Volume: 3 Issue: 53
In his remarks to Russian media chiefs on March 14 (see Perspective section below), Boris Yeltsin intimated that the U.S. has played a smaller economic role in supporting Russian reform than have France, Germany, Britain, and Japan. A day later presidential press spokesman Sergei Yastrzhembsky clarified the remarks, saying that Yeltsin had been referring to Moscow’s hopes of winning G-7 membership. The U.S., he said, could be helping Russia more in that endeavor. (Interfax, March 14)
