The day after the tank strike on the Supreme Council building in the Russian capital, former head of the United States Bill Clinton conveyed his congratulations to then Russian President Boris Yeltsin in connection with the resolution of the constitutional crisis.
This information follows from a declassified transcript of a telephone conversation between the leaders of the countries on October 5, 1993.
“I know it was difficult for you, but you did everything exactly as you should have, and I congratulate you on the way you handled the situation,” Clinton said during negotiations with Yeltsin.
It is clarified that during the conversation, the owner of the White House asked whether the elections in the Russian Federation would be held on time and what would happen to Yeltsin’s opponents.
“I’m not sure, but maybe I’ll be in the record books after three elections in three years,” Clinton’s interlocutor said.
Let us recall that ex-member of the Supreme Council of the Russian Federation Committee on Science and Public Education Anatoly Baronenko, who was in the White House during the armed conflict between supporters of parliament and the president in October 1993, admitted that the tank strikes on the upper part of the building could have a connection with documentation located there about the accounts of the entourage of the head of the country Boris Yeltsin abroad.
