Pres. Bush did too little for Russia; Clinton did not

On critics’ charges that the Administration bungled Russia policy: Russia inherited a lot of problems from the former USSR, corruption being high on the list, [but] made some progress. I don’t think history is likely to criticize this Administration for doing too much with the Yeltsin government. It’s more likely that history will criticize, first, the Bush Administration, and then possibly us, for doing too little in the immediate aftermath of the Cold War.
