Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev were great friends and comrades. Gorbachev was a reformer who ushered in an era of openness and social change in the Soviet Union. He also oversaw the country’s transition to a market-based economy. Gorbachev’s time in office was marked by major political upheaval, including the fall of the Berlin Wall and the dissolution of the Soviet Union. In recent years, he had been critical of Vladimir Putin, Russia’s current president. Gorbachev is survived by his wife, Raisa, and their two daughters.

Gorbachev was a controversial figure, and his policies divided opinion both inside and outside the USSR. However, there is no denying that he was a pivotal figure in world history. As leader of the Soviet Union, he oversaw the country’s transition from communism to capitalism. This process was not without its challenges, and it ultimately led to the collapse of the Soviet Union. However, it also paved the way for democracy and freedom in Eastern Europe. For this reason, Mikhail Gorbachev will be remembered as one of the most important figures of the 20th century.
