It would be hard to imagine Raisa Gorbachev referring to herself as a babushka the way Naina Yeltsin recently did. Perhaps Madame Gorbachev would describe herself as an intellect or a model of Marxism, modernism and fashion. But she most certainly would stiffen at the suggestion she was a formless grandmother in sensible shoes. But if Raisa's bold style and Western wardrobe were a break with tradition, then Naina Yeltsin's hausfrau look and shy manner are something of a throwback.

Since Boris N. Yeltsin was rushed to the hospital last week with a new bout of heart disease, Russia has been gripped by speculation that its unpopular president is near death and that his post-Soviet reforms may be swept away in an imminent--and possibly bloody--change of leadership. Naina I. Yeltsin endured all that silently, with pain in her own heart--until Tuesday.

President Boris N. Yeltsin's health has improved since he suffered a mild heart attack last week, but his doctors say he should spend at least three weeks in the hospital, then two weeks in a sanatorium, the Itar-Tass news agency said. Seeking to ease fears over the 64-year-old Kremlin leader's health, Naina Yeltsin said her husband is on the mend and Prime Minister Viktor S. Chernomyrdin said the president is making all major national decisions.

Unlike the more flamboyant Raisa Gorbachev, Russia's first lady displayed a disarming, grandmotherly demeanor in her initial outing here Tuesday to visit a soup-and-sandwich kitchen for the homeless in the heart of Washington's black ghetto. Naina Iosifovna Yeltsin, who has shunned the limelight in her homeland in accordance with Russian tradition, appeared to adapt well to American expectations in a media sideshow to her husband Boris' talks at the White House.

As Air Force One landed in this northern European capital Thursday, countless cameras were aimed at the hatch to capture the arrival of President Clinton. But instead of a stairway, a white container--with the words "Finnair catering" printed across the side in large blue letters--pulled up beside the plane. After what seemed an excruciatingly long time, the container was lowered to the ground, the door opened, and out rolled Clinton in his wheelchair.

Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin left a Moscow hospital Monday after a month of treatment for heart disease and secluded himself in a suburban health resort to continue his recovery, his spokesman reported. There was no television footage of the 64-year-old leader's move, no medical update on his condition and no information on how long he is supposed to stay under medical care at the Barvikha sanitarium 12 miles west of the capital. Presidential spokesman Sergei K.

Where in the world is Ludmila Putin? Since Vladimir V. Putin became Russia's acting president on New Year's Eve, his wife has barely been seen and never heard. She has appeared in public less than half a dozen times--and then only briefly. Not once has she uttered a word. "I have absolutely no impression of her at all because I've never seen her at all," said Yulia Nazarova, 30, a part-time seamstress. "Maybe that's the way it should be."

What seemed implausible a few weeks ago is now all but official: Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin--who stumbled through the past year with an unpopular war, single-digit approval ratings and heart ailments that confined him to bed for nearly four months--is up and running for reelection.

The president of Russia was speaking to villagers by the White Sea when a wet gust of Arctic wind ripped through his famous pompadour, leaving it a flattened tangle. It was a minor but awkward setback in a reelection campaign that runs heavy on image. Without his snowy dome in proper contour, Boris N. Yeltsin looks, well . . . less than presidential. Until a few weeks ago, there was no one at his side who could have rescued Yeltsin from a bad hair day without looking just as ridiculous.
