ABSTRACT
Reports that in a series of rapid-fire decrees last week, Russian President Boris Yeltsin banned the week-old National Salvation Front--a hodgepodge of hard-line politicians, paramilitary associations, nationalists, right-wing clergy and old-line Communists, which Yeltsin charged with trying to `destabilize' the country. Why he halted the withdrawal of Russian troops from the Baltic states; The showdown could come December 1 from Congress.
