Submission + - Boris Yeltin's daughter blogs against Putin (

reporter writes: According to a report by, Tatyana Yumasheva (the daughter of President Boris Yeltsin) is writing a blog that condemns the distorted history sanctioned by Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. Also, she "portrays him in a light that will be alien to millions of Russians, drip-fed the image of him as a macho action man figure who knows no weakness or indecision. After her father offered Mr Putin the presidency — partly it is claimed because he offered a guarantee that no Yeltsin acolytes would be prosecuted for corruption — she recalls how daunted and unsure of himself the former KGB officer appeared."

Yumasheva may be using this blog as a launching pad for a political career that includes the presidency of Russia. Will she succeed? Only time will tell.
