"It would be more stable and safer": Gorbachev told what would become of the world if the USSR was preserved

Today's world would be much more stable, safer and fairer if the Soviet Union could be preserved. Ex-President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev announced this in an interview with the British edition of The Times.


What the world would look like if the union was preserved - история does not know the subjunctive mood. But I think the world would be better. It would be more stable, safer, fairer

- said Gorbachev.

At the same time, he stressed that the collapse of the Soviet Union was not the "end result" of perestroika, no one, including himself, "did not want it."

Talking about his presidency, Gorbachev admitted mistakes. In his opinion, in the process of perestroika, the reform of the party began too late, the decentralization of the USSR, and "not bold enough" economic reforms were carried out. However, there were also positive results of the policy pursued, among which Gorbachev named: the end of the Cold War, the treaty on nuclear disarmament, new freedoms received by the citizens of the country, including free travel abroad, etc.

The collapse of the Soviet Union, according to Gorbachev, was the fault of radicals and separatists.

And most importantly, we have brought the process of change to the point where it became impossible to reverse it. Therefore, the coup in August 1991 failed. Although the damage from it is enormous: it was a blow to the president and the Union. And then radicals and separatists finished off the Union without thinking about the consequences

- added the ex-president of the USSR.

        To listen to ANY criminal (or his lawyer) during the trial - so he is not guilty of anything.
        Others and coincidence of circumstances are to blame

          Humpback, this is not "any criminal", on his conscience (if he has one, which I personally doubt), tens of millions of lives. Killed, or for various reasons provoked by the collapse of the USSR, simply died ahead of time. And not only in the former Soviet Union, but throughout the world. Such things cannot be forgiven. And this mug with a smart look, still gives advice.

      The collapse was the fault of Gorbachev himself, if only he repented before his death .. But no, it is difficult to admit oneself in stupidity, softness and betrayal .. Damn dove of peace ..

      AND AGAIN?!?!????

      It seems to me that the point is not that he has something to say. Or, at least, you want to fumble something with your mouth. But the fact is that the interview The Times with the President of the USSR, I think, is well paid. At least American retired presidents do not hesitate to make good money on this - Clinton's lecture (I wonder what new he can tell Harvard students at his lectures on economics?) At the university is worth more than his annual salary during the presidency.

      What did Stanislavsky say there? I DO NOT BELIEVE!
      Why don't I believe it? Yes, because this gentleman (no longer a comrade) steps in before the "respectable" British newspaper The Times, gives an interview for a fee. He tells THEM, not US! And he cares about the fate of the world, and speaks of justice. And it shows in his words that he did everything right, but they did not listen to him, brilliant, and vice versa did fool

      But if he came out on OUR TV, but he would publicly repent, but admit all his mistakes, and ask the people for forgiveness ... Then I would say that conscience woke up, it would be a strong act. And so ....
      Again, all about the same: loot and self-justification! I DO NOT BELIEVE!

      And this - so that there is something to go to hypermarkets. It's almost like American money, after all. And then 200 thousand from the President of South Korea probably ended quickly. With Raisa Maksimovna's appetites, this is quick. The wife needs something to support. No wonder they joked in the country then

    Judas is cowardly. An insignificant weak-willed human. When this troika signed an agreement in Belovezhskaya Pushcha on the recognition of the USSR as non-existent, Gorbachev was OBLIGED to give an order to arrest this trio and try for high treason, followed by the inevitable death sentence. And this coward cowardly agreed to this and voluntarily recognized this treaty and resigned from himself the powers of the president of the USSR. It is as if now the governors of Moscow, St. Petersburg and Tatarstan, the three largest regions of Russia, would meet and sign an agreement on the termination of the existence of the Russian Federation and on its disintegration along the borders of the regions. What would you do with such traitors now? Of course, they would have been arrested right away and sentenced to life imprisonment. And in 1985, even the Americans could not imagine that in 6 years the USSR would cease to exist, no one could have suggested this even in their wildest dreams. But such a delusional scenario became possible precisely thanks to such a weakling and coward as Gorbachev. If now the same coward and traitor as Gorbachev becomes the president of Russia, then in 5 years the collapse of Russia across the regions may well happen, thanks to the efforts of traitors in power, who raised their heads under such a weak president and outright treacherous policies.

    positive results of the policy pursued, among which Gorbachev named: the end of the Cold War, the nuclear disarmament treaty, new freedoms received by the citizens of the country, including free travel abroad etc.


    The poll in Moscow was conducted from April 20 to May 3, 2018 on a representative sample of the city's population among 512 people aged 18 and over. The study was conducted on the street by personal interviews in CAPI format (on tablets). The distribution of answers is given as a percentage of the total number of respondents. The statistical error of the survey data does not exceed 6,6%.

    About a third of Russians and two-thirds of Muscovites have been abroad. At the same time, a quarter of the country's citizens and about 56% of the capital's residents have a valid foreign passport. A much smaller number of people already have an open visa to enter another country in their passports: 9% and 20%, respectively.


    Two-thirds of Russians did not have the opportunity to travel abroad, and have not found this opportunity even in 30 years !!

    And you shouldn't even take any Mashek Zakharovs or Peskov's daughters into account.

    As his language turns - something there to comment on the USSR, he is not behind bars and is still alive - only because of the softness of the current leadership of the Russian Federation.

    as a Christian I cannot say that it is good that his Raika is absent. But I understand how much harm this tandem of the Bullseye and Raika would have brought to Russia during that time until today if Raiku had not been cleaned up by the devils in hell. The marked one was a spineless henpecked. And so that they, in tandem with Raika, would not lead all liberalism in Russia after Yeltsin handed over power to Putin, it is not necessary and hopes that this would not happen .. The West would not have to spend billions of dollars to find will appoint Berezovsky, Khodorkovsky and Navalny. And without Raika, Marked is zero. The tagged one would agree to work as the leader of liberalism for a pair of tights for Raika. If only the West would praise. It’s stupid even for liberals, but Raika’s liberal ridge is stronger, although both of their ridge is bent into a hump in the direction of the West. Therefore, they have the surname Gorbachev ... And what is typical, when Russia was ruled by the same spineless henpecked Nicholas II, the Empire also collapsed ... But the Bolsheviks then knew what to do with the spineless henpecked ...,
