      ...AND TATARSTAN VILLAGER CONTINUES TO HONOR YELTSIN'S TRUNKS. TV-6
      reported on 5 August that the village of Raifa in Tatarstan has
      preserved a historical memento from former Russian President Boris
      Yeltsin's visit to the Tatarstan in 1991 -- his swimming trunks.
      During that trip, Yeltsin swam in a local lake with borrowed
      swimwear. Vladimir Chernov, a former director of a special vocational
      school for juvenile delinquents near the Raifa Monastery, keeps the
      trunks Yeltsin donned wrapped in newspaper in a cupboard. According
      to the station, he takes them out only on special occasions. JAC
