Boris N. Yeltsin's health is just fine, thank you, and any claims to the contrary are nothing but "intentional disinformation," the Russian president's press service declared Monday. The announcement, carried by the official Itar-Tass news agency, may have sounded comical but it had a serious aim: to quell mounting jitters in the Moscow media and government circles over reports that another Russian coup may be brewing, this one based on claims that Yeltsin is ailing.
