na zdorovia, boris

Russia's first democratically elected, post-soviet leader died today. Famous for forging ties with the West and infamous for sinking his newly capitalist country into economic disaster, Yeltsin was a true Russian. By which I mean that he was drunk. In public. Frequently.

Sportsovitch: Yeltsy playing tennis with a cosmonaut.


Danceovitch: Presh!! Yeltsy rocking out at a concert. I couldn't love Russians more.


Diplomatovitch: The drunk and the cheat. And yet still, somehow infinitely preferable to Putin and Bush.
