History knows many cases when, acting for their own personal gain, the ruler of his people neglected. It happened with Gorbachev! Gorbachev crushed Nobel laurels, so much so that he did not hear the wailing of the Slavs. He impressed the image of "universal peace-lover", "Mediator of the West and the East", he was afraid to go to the tough decisions on how the negotiations and in the solution of internal problems. To great regret, helplessness of the political role it is defined today's Russia. Much credit for this dear Edward and Kozyrev, not accidentally called the last "his cap US Navy."
