June 13th 1991; Yeltsin wins first Russian elections. Boris Yeltsin is celebrating victory as Russia's first popularly-elected president. The 60-year-old reformer and leader of the group Democratic Russia has inflicted a heavy defeat on the Communist Party which has ruled the country since the 1917 Revolution.

Although the result will not be officially confirmed until next week, it is clear Mr. Yeltsin has achieved more than the 50% of votes required to avoid a second ballot. His supporters claim he has secured 60 to 70% of the vote in many of the large Russian cities and up to 90% in his native city, Sverdlovsk.
