Russian President Boris N. Yeltsin, fearing that strikes could shatter his reforms, delivered billions of rubles in back wages to industrial hot spots Tuesday and urged oil workers to hold out despite hardship. "We all must make sacrifices, but there is a sense to it," Yeltsin said in an appeal to energy workers. "If we hold out, we can stabilize the economy."
