Join historian, Olexandr Shevchenko PhD for this intimate look at some of the most fascinating characters in modern Soviet history.


Mikhail Gorbachev, one of the most significant world leaders of the 20th century was both loved and hated. He won the Nobel Peace prize yet was absent when troops were sent against protesters in Georgia and Lithuania. He wanted communism to survive with a human face and without fear of nuclear annihilation. Yet his efforts ultimately resulted in the collapse of the communist ideology and the disintegration of the country he so much wanted to save.
