Audio digital recording of an interview conducted by Dr. Deborah Palmieri with Yuli M. Vorontsov at the Russian Embassy in 1998. In this interview Dr. Palmieri asks Vorontsov about Boris Yeltsin's decision to dissolve the government which he felt was a good thing even though he was surprised about Yeltsin's decision to dissolve the government. He stated that he felt Russia was a very stable country, but he did not think that Yeltsin would run for a third term as Russia's President. Palmieri also asked him about newcomers to the government and how he felt about them, what he thought about the economy of Russia at this point, and how Russians felt about not receiving much aid from the Marshall Plan. Vorontsov thought that Russians were very disappointed to not receive aid from the Marshall Plan, especially after becoming a democratic country. One of the last questions Palmieri asked Vorontsov was how he thought history would view Yeltsin and he thought that history would view Yeltsin very favorably and would praise him for what he had done for Russia.
