Boris Yeltsin's widow Naina responded to Gennady Zyuganov in an open letter to his statements about her wife and the Yeltsin Center, the text of the message was published in the Yeltsin Center group.

Gennady Zyuganov, speaking at the Territory of Meanings forum, stated that the creation of the Yeltsin Center— “a national disgrace”, adding that in Russia this structure was “created by the Americans”. “I spoke to [President Vladimir] Putin more than once, and from the rostrum of the State Duma. Everyone knows that the Americans specially built the Yeltsin Center for us. About 12 billion is spent on it every year. It is a national shame when a human center is organized, where the exposition was prepared by 100 percent Americans, — Zyuganov said.

Naina Yeltsina called these words “utter nonsense.” “It is easy to verify this by watching and reading many interviews of the excellent Russian director Pavel Lungin, one of the founders of the Yeltsin Center, going into the museum itself and looking at the exposition dedicated to the Great Patriotic War, looking at the line of the budget that the state allocates to the Yeltsin Center, for example, for this or past years, & mdash; she emphasized.

During the speech, Zyuganov also stated that the first president of Russia offered him “any post”, but he refused, answering that “it would be better to shoot himself.”

Under no circumstances could the first president of Russia offer you “any post.” He was completely irreconcilable to the anti-human ideology that you defended. All this neo-Stalinism of yours, hatred of universal human values, imperial slogans were absolutely unacceptable to Boris. You have always been his ideological enemy. That's how he perceived you for the rest of his life,” — Naina Yeltsina answered him.
