There are 2 comments on Q&A: Gorbachev’s Death, Putin’s Rise, and Cold War Politics

  1. As food for thought:
    Gorbachev is considered the worst and most hated leader in the whole of Russian history. Putin in another hand, stands among other great Russian leaders such as Ivan III, Ivan IV, Peter I, and Stalin.

  2. “Leonid Brezhnev had become incoherent in the mid-70s, but ruled until 1982. While he slumbered, the ruling elite focused on its privileges and ignored signs of corruption and incompetence. “

    Hmm, why does this begin to sound familiar?
