A Russian Communist leader said Monday he was kidnaped, beaten and abandoned in woods near Moscow in an attempt at political intimidation. Viktor Anpilov, head of the small, hard-line Russian Communist Workers Party, was one of the leaders of a Communist and nationalist May Day rally that turned violent, resulting in a policeman's death and the injury of hundreds of people. Anpilov disappeared Saturday after being questioned at the Moscow prosecutor's office about the disturbances.

If you're a citizen of St. Petersburg, chances are you blame Ted Turner and the 1994 Goodwill Games. Turner, the founder of Cable News Network, created the Goodwill Games in 1986 after politically inspired boycotts kept apart athletes from the United States and the Soviet Union.

Russia's wrenchingly painful economic reforms got a nod of approval Wednesday from the International Monetary Fund, but thousands of ordinary Russians, angry and confused, denounced the "sellout" of their country to the West by a government of "state criminals." A leader of the Communists in the Russian legislature announced that his parliamentary faction would soon try to ram through its own socialist-style program of privatization--handing the keys of state-owned factories to their employees.
