Boris Yeltsin, former Russian President and the person who pushed the country finally in it’s new found love for Democracy, has died at the age of 76. No cause has been given out at the moment but he had suffered from ill health for the last few years.
Despite seeing the icon on tv on many occasions, I will always remember Yeltsin for the parody portrayal by Royal Canadian Air Farce cast member, the late Welsh comedian John Morgan. Morgan used to do an excellent although exaggerated drunk version of Boris, that still tickles me to the bone. Rest in Peace!
