Mikhail Gorbachev has died at 91
The ultimate comparison
Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, who played a central role in ending the Cold War, died Tuesday at the age of 91.
Gorbachev never wanted to see global conflict again, leaving him determined to make the world less suspicious of communism.
"I like Mr. Gorbachev," she said. "We can do business together."
"That was, kind of, the pride of a peasant who had accomplished something, of which he was proud," Grachev says.
Russian President Vladimir Putin expressed his condolences, Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, told RIA Novosti.
Gorbachev was asked on Larry King how he wants history to judge him.
He will be buried next to his wife at the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow, RIA Novosti reported citing the Gorbachev Foundation.
