Yekaterinburg shopping mall to become Yeltsin Presidential Complex
"The goal is to show who Boris Yeltsin was, with all his good and bad properties: what he was doing, how he came to Moscow, what changes he introduced and what Russia, democratic Russia, gained thanks to him," Vladimir N. Shevchenko, the Kremlin's chief of protocol under Boris Yeltsin, said, according to the New York Times.
The Boris N. Yeltsin Presidential Center will be filled with exhibits chronicling the events and actions of Yeltsin's presidency from 1991 to 1999. It will include a research center, conference halls and exhibitions about Yeltsin' early life including his service in World War II.
Scheduled to be completed in October, the presidential center is being designed by Ralph Appelbaum Associates, the same company that designed the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Arkansas. The center is being financed by the Russian Federal Government with a budget of $100 million.
