Yeltsin falls sick again, is hospitalized

Russian presidential spokesman Sergei Medvedev said October 29 that President Boris Yeltsin's condition was "stable," but Western press agencies claimed that Yeltsin is in worse shape than his aides admit. Yeltsin came down October 26 with a recurrence of the myocardial ischemia that he has suffered from in the past and as rushed to a hospital in Moscow. The president's doctors said Yeltsin would remain hospitalized until the end of November.
