A new book by the last president of the Soviet Union is causing a stir in Russia.
Mikhail Gorbachev criticizes Russia’s current president saying the rift between government and people can no longer be tolerated.
Gorbachev argues that a strong presidential authority is needed in Russia, but he says not a Fuhrer and certainly not a Stalin.
“New Russia” by Mikhail Gorbachev was released yesterday.
