England's Queen Elizabeth II chats with the Russian president during her visit to Russia in October 1994. The trip marked the first time a British monarch had visited Russia since relations between the two countries were soured by the Bolsheviks' 1918 killing of Tsar Nicholas II and his family. The Russian tsar was the cousin of Queen Elizabeth's grandfather.
Yeltsin is welcomed to Russia's Tatarstan region in May 1994 with a cake in the shape of the kremlin towers in Moscow and Kazan, Tatarstan's capital.
The cake is shaped from "chak-chak", a traditional Tatar dessert made from small pieces of crispy, deep-fried dough bound together with honey syrup.
