Russia’s leadership should start listening to the people or risk mass protests and disorder, said Mikhail Gorbachev , the last leader of the Soviet Union.
Mikhail Gorbachev, who presided over the end of the Soviet Union, says Prime Minister Vladimir Putin shouldn’t seek a third term as Russian president as the country struggles to develop democratic institutions.
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev said Prime Minister Vladimir Putin shouldn’t run for president next year because his government has lost touch with the people.
"The world is on the brink of a new Cold War. Some are even saying that it's already begun."
