Yeltsin was an ill Ö tsar; Putin is a young tsarevich

Interview with Yabloko faction coordinator Sergei Ivanenko. By Ekaterina Larina, The Russia Journal Vol.3, No.15April 24-30, 2000,


Sergei Ivanenko is coordinator of the Yabloko faction in the State Duma and right-hand-man to the party's leader, Grigory Yavlinsky.

Ivanenko was a member of the Russian delegation at the recent Council of Europe session that voted to suspend Russiaís membership, but unlike the majority of the delegation, he did not protest the councilís decision. A subsequent resolution passed by the State Duma lower house of parliament confirmed the delegation's majority stance.

Sergei Ivanenko told The Russia Journal about the Yabloko factionís position on this issue, the factionís plans and his personal views on Russian politics.
