Boris Yeltsin's daughter back, gets new political party


Tatyana with Daddy.

Boris Yeltsin’s daughter Tatyana Dyachenko has recently resurfaced in Russian public life and now there’s talk of having her head a Kremlin-made right-leaning business party that would propagate Medvedev’s ideas of modernization.

The idea comes to us courtesy of Alexander Voloshin, once a member of Yeltsin’s “Family” (your Sopranos mental image is right on), then Putin’s chief of staff, and now the head of Norilsk Nickel.

So much for at least being sly about creating shell parties.
