Well, that's one way of putting it....

The Secretary General of NATO, Jaap de Hoop Scheffer, on the death of Yeltsin:

"I was saddened to learn of the death of Boris Nikolayevich Yeltsin, First President of the Russian Federation. President Yeltsin will be remembered for his courage in charting a new, democratic course for his country. He was also at the forefront of the effort to overcome the legacy of the Cold War by forging a new relationship between Russia and the North Atlantic Alliance. This historic effort to set aside the fears and stereotypes of the past in favour of cooperation in facing the challenges of the future, enshrined in the NATO-Russia Founding Act that bears President Yeltsin’s signature, continues to this day".

Might not 'Cheers mate, you made our jobs a lot easier' have been rather punchier?
