  The proposal that he continue for two more six-year terms after his present stint ends in was due to be put to the people next Wednesday. But thanks to Covid the vote has been deferred.   Highlights of former Russian President Boris Yeltsin's life and career: Feb. 1, Born to peasant parents in the Ural Mountains. Baptized in Russian Orthodox Church. Yeltsin's father is.

Yeltsin became the first elected leader of Russia in He won 57% of the vote. Two months later, Yeltsin became a hero across Russia when he helped stop an attack on the government in Moscow. Later that year, the Soviet Union collapsed as Russia and all 14 other divisions made themselves : February 1, , Butka, Sverdlovsk, . Boris Yeltsin was born on February 1, in the village of Butka, near Sverdlovsk (now Yekaterinburg), in the Urals, in a peasant family. His father spent several years in Stalin’s labour camps accused of anti-Soviet agitation – Yeltsin only joined the Communist Party in , during Khrushchev’s anti-Stalinist reforms.

Yeltsin did manage to win, thanks to non-stop propaganda by government- (and Yeltsin-friendly oligarchs-) controlled media raising his rating from 5% to 60% in six months. During his second term (which started with a quintuple heart bypass surgery), Russia received the equivalent to 40 billion US dollars from the IMF, which were later allegedly. Boris yeltsin’s passing from the world scene demonstrates once again how one man can change history. If not for Yeltsin, Russia today might still be ruled by the Soviet Communist Party, either in reformist or Stalinist incarnation. But Yeltsin only started the long and still unfinished business of reforming Russia.

Colton's book is a scholarly, yet readable take on Yeltsin's life.

Yeltsin's political foes failed earlier this year to impeach the president on five charges, ranging from ruining the economy and armed forces to crushing the rebellion of the hard-line.
