Zyuganov's Breather

MOSCOW () -- Russia's Communist Party leader is heading for a luxurious resort spa on the Black Sea to recover from the rigors of his failed presidential campaign.

Itar-Tass said Wednesday that Gennady Zyuganov, 52, will vacation in the Sochi spa and resort in the city of the same name.

The Sochi -- which boasts a beach, a picturesque park and a range of spa-like treatments for the health-conscious -- was once the exclusive realm of the Soviet Union's top-party officials. It now features pricey private resorts.
