On the website of library of the former U.S. President Bill Clinton have published interpretations of his talk with Boris Yeltsin in 1991-1999 holding a post of the President of Russia. on September 8, 1999, mister Yeltsin has personally told

B of one of telephone conversations to the American colleague that he has chosen as the successor Vladimir Putin. This conversation has taken place almost in a month after a televised address of Boris Yeltsin in which he had said on August 9, 1999 that he will support Vladimir Putin's nomination at the upcoming presidential elections, Kommersant writes.

According to the shorthand report, the then president of Russia has decided to tell Bill Clinton about the successor in more detail. "Soon, in next few days, you will meet mister Putin. So far I would like to tell you about him that you knew that he for the person. I needed a lot of time to consider who can become the following President of Russia in 2000" — Boris Yeltsin has told.

It has said that he didn't manage to find candidates for presidential post, but then he "has come across" Vladimir Putin. After that mister Yeltsin "has studied the biography, interests, acquaintances" the alleged successor.

"I have found out that it is a reliable person who is well informed that he is in the sphere of his responsibility. At the same time he detailed and strong, very sociable. And he can easily establish good relations and find contact with partners. I am convinced that you will consider him the highly skilled partner. I am sure that he will be supported as the candidate in 2000. We work on it" — mister Yeltsin has told.

In response to it Bill Clinton says that he already "had good contacts with mister Putin", and he looks forward to a meeting with him. Presumably, it was talked of their forthcoming meeting on September 12, 1999 at a forum of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation in Auckland.

"Putin, of course. He will be my successor. He is a democrat and knows the West" — mister Yeltsin has told. "He is very clever" — Bill Clinton has noted. In response to it Boris Yeltsin has added: "He is rigid. He has an internal core. I will do everything possible that he has won — on legal grounds, of course. And he will win. You will do together business. He will continue the direction chosen by me in democracy and economy and will expand contacts of Russia. He has an energy and mind to achieve success". on December 31, 1999, Boris Yeltsin declared

In one and a half months after this meeting resignation.
