Remembering Naughty Yeltsin...

Here's a pic to remember the late president of the Russian confederation, Boris Yeltsin.

Unlike many of his predecessors, Yeltsin often looked warm and friendly. Even though he had been incarcerated in the past, he always appeared jovial and happy.

Obviously, his judgement was flawed when he was caught by the camera teasing an employee in public.

Today, it would have been perhaps considered as sexual harassment!

Looking at it positively, the late Yeltsin truly showed the humanistic side of a Soviet leader so much unlike past Cold War ones and the present one who seem to fit the cold-blooded stereotypes that Hollywood churns out often.

This Sarawak Tribune pic has not been dated due to an accident.
