Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev dies


On August 30, at the age of 92, the former President of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, died in the Central Clinical Hospital of Moscow. The cause of his death was a severe long-term illness.


The politician spent more than a year in a medical institution, where, due to the deterioration of kidney function, he underwent hemodialysis. In June, the press secretary of the Gorbachev Foundation, Vladimir Polyakov, told the media about the health problems of the former Soviet leader.

Previously, there were suggestions that the coronavirus could be the cause of Mikhail Sergeyevich's illness. However, a source close to Gorbachev denied this information. According to him, the President of the USSR died from diseases associated with advanced age.

It is reported that Mikhail Gorbachev will be buried in a family grave next to his wife Raisa at the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow. This is consistent with his own will.

The reaction of the Kremlin to the death of Gorbachev reported RIA News Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov.

President Putin expresses deep condolences on the death of Mikhail Gorbachev. In the morning, he will send a telegram of condolences to his family and friends.

Peskov said.

The State Duma announced that the assessment of the activities of the deceased policy will give the next generation of Russians. At the same time, a number of parliamentarians noted that Gorbachev was a brilliant statesman, in line with the spirit of his time.

      Finally, they sighed, the era of betrayal, meanness and stupidity is gone. For a wake and such an occasion, a glass of vodka, and so that the earth is glassy.

        And not one glass, and "clinking glasses" drinks yes (how can one not recall the "dry law" that was debilitating in design and execution, from which, in general, the collapse of the Soviet economy began) ...

    Now in the comments "Gulchatay face will open." And we will all understand who is a friend and who is an enemy of Russia. Although I already know this.

    Not fun. I did not wait for a legal assessment of the activities of this traitor and state criminal. So far, there remains a faint hope that the Gorbachev Center will not be added to the Yeltsin Center.

      Considering what assessments of the hunchback's activities were given by the current guarantor, your hopes are very illusory.
      Most likely they will somehow "perpetuate", and at the expense of funds from the budget ...

      Denis, the phrase completely sounds like this - "About the dead or good or nothing but the truth."
      And the truth is that he sold the country for a piece of pizza. Damn advertiser...
      One sold, the second, a drunk with a pood face, drank ... The drunk has already been beaten off by the "center" - it stinks all over Russia. And this, probably, "Gorby Center" will be bogged down ... We are waiting, sir ...

        I specifically used a shortened phrase, because if you start telling the truth about the MSG, then everyone will not like it, both the patriots and the jingoistic patriots, and the rest, and will cause the next coming of the Banhamer, so he is dumb - just nothing. Give oblivion.
