Yaroslavl Slams Yeltsin

MOSCOW -- The regional parliament in the Russian province of Yaroslavl on Tuesday voted overwhelmingly in favor of a motion of no-confidence in President Boris Yeltsin, Interfax reported.

The motion asserted that Yeltsin was incapable "of stabilizing the [financial] situation and of guiding the country on a path of stable development and towards an improvement in the standard of living."

The motion also backs the call for dismissal made at a national level by communist deputies in the country's lower house of parliament, the State Duma.
