First President of new Russia

­Naina Yeltsina – Widow Of The First Russian President Boris Yeltsin

Today my guest is Naina Yeltsina. It’s been eighty years since the first president of Russia was born. He was in the boiling pot of the Soviet political system when the USSR was falling apart. And with his signature on the Belavezha Accords, the Soviet Union ceased to exist. The charismatic Yeltsin was the object of people’s love in the 90s, but became less popular by the end of his presidency. What has been the heritage of the controversial President? We’re asking Boris Yeltsin’s widow and his most intimate friend, Naina Yeltsina.
