Vandals defaced a monument of Russia’s first post- Soviet president Boris Yeltsin on Friday.

They poured blue paint over the memorial in Yeltsin’s home town of Yekaterinburg.

Police are investigating.

Yeltsin was elected president of Russia in 1991 and 1996.

He died five years ago after a string of health problems.
