Boris Yeltsin Found Drunk And Naked During 1995 White House Visit

September 22, 2009

US (ChattahBox) – The Clinton Tapes: Wrestling History with the President, the new book by Taylor Branch that was created from a set of interviews with former President Bill Clinton, has an interesting little story about former Russian President Boris Yeltsin.

According to Branch, Yeltsin had a notorious visit in 1995. He managed to slip his security detail, causing a panic within the Secret Service.

When they finally managed to find him, he was about 100 yards away from the White House. He had been drinking heavily, and had stripped down to his underwear. Yeltsin was reportedly trying to hail a cab, because he ‘wanted a pizza’.

It is one of many interesting stories that have been released with the publication of the book, and shows that leaders certainly have their vices. Apparently for Yeltsin those vices are vodka and a good slice.
