Gorbatchev’s 90th Birthday (* March 2, 1931)

Gorbatchev is only 54 years old when he takes over the leadership of the rather geriatric central committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. His Glasnost and Perestroika policies make him famous the world over. By opening up systematically to the population and by setting in motion a radical political and economic transformation, Gorbachev subjected the crisis-ridden Soviet Union to a fundamental reform process.

He also pursues a strategy of "new thinking" in his foreign policy. He withdraws Soviet troops from Afghanistan, thereby ending a war that has been going on since 1979. He negotiates nuclear disarmament agreements with the United States and arranges a rapprochement between the two great powers. He abandons the Brezhnev Doctrine and grants full sovereignty to Warsaw Pact member states - a move that leads to nonviolent revolutions in most Eastern Bloc countries within months and sets the stage for German reunification.

Abroad he is celebrated as a hero for his role in ending the Cold War and awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990, but at home opposition grows.

Although the attempted coup failed in August 1991, Gorbachev was effectively deprived of power. When he resigns a few months after the official dissolution of the USSR, the red flag over the Kremlin is taken down forever. To this day he is reviled in his homeland as a "traitor" and as a gravedigger of the Soviet empire.
