BELGRADE, November 28 (Itar-Tass) - Photographs of Russian special envoy for Yugoslavia Viktor Chernomyrdin and Western politicians who made the largest contribution to the settlement of the Yugoslav crisis were published by Sunday's issue of the Rilindja newspaper.

The photographs depict Chernomyrdin, Bill Clinton, Madeleine Albright, ex-chief of NATO Javier Solana, NATO spokesman JamieShea, ex-prosecutor of the Hague Tribunal Louise Arbour and ex- head of the OSCE mission in Kosovo William Walker.
