Yeltsin's Sochi Vacation

MOSCOW () -- President Boris Yeltsin will start a two-week holiday March 27, probably combining a trip to the Black Sea resort of Sochi with working visits to several Russian towns, Itar-Tass said Monday.

Yeltsin is expected to visit Ryazan, Rostov-on-Don and Kislovodsk during his break from Moscow. "The president's short holiday does not break with tradition," Itar-Tass said.
