Boris rumbled them pretty quickly and ended the call. If I have a message to Putin, it’s that we don’t want a cold war but we do want to see an improvement in the way Russia behaves, he said.

As a reporter based in Moscow two decades ago when Russia’s first democratically elected president, Boris N. Yeltsin, handed power to Mr. Putin, I traveled to St. Petersburg, the new president’s hometown, to try to figure out what chance - if any - Mr. Putin had of ruling, never mind reversing, the bleak scene he had been handed.
