Was Mikhail Gorbachev Russia's Last Great Hope For Democracy?

With the war in Ukraine raging on, we have to wonder as we remember the real Mikhail Gorbachev, if there would be peace between Ukraine and Russia if Gobrachev was not stopped by George Bush and the Chicago Boys. Thom Hartmann explains the real history of the Soviet Union's last leader, mikhail gorbachev, and what Russia could have been without neoliberalism. Mikhail Gorbachev died at 91. the last leader of the Soviet Union had hoped to turn Russia into a Democratic Socialist country similar to Sweden and he almost succeeded until George H.W. Bush turned Russia's dreams for Democracy into a neoliberal living Nightmare, eventually leading to Putin taking power.
