Обновлено: 3 сент. 2018 г.

MOSCOW, Aug 28 (Reuters) - President Boris Yeltsin, who has

stayed at a country residence outside Moscow during the last few

days despite a deepening financial and political crisis, arrived

at the Kremlin on Friday, Itar-Tass news agency said.

The Kremlin press service could not immediately confirm the

report, which said the 67-year-old president had arrived at his

office at 9 am (0500 GMT). He has a scheduled meeting with

visiting Bulgarian President Petar Stoyanov at 10 am (0700 GMT).

Yeltsin is also expected to meet acting Prime Minister

Viktor Chernomyrdin and Foreign Minister Yevgeny Primakov later

in the day.

On Thursday rumours swept Western financial markets that

Yeltsin, who has dominated Russia's political stage for nearly a

decade, was ready to step down because of the acute crisis,

which has driven the rouble into freefall and triggered grave

doubts about the future of market reforms.

The Kremlin has denied the rumours but Yeltsin's own silence

about the crisis has kept financial markets on tenterhooks.

The ruling council of the Communist-dominated State Duma

lower house is also due to meet later on Friday to consider

whether and when it should vote to confirm Chernomyrdin as prime
