Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev said Sunday that the crisis in Ukraine stems from the governments failure to act democratically. [ ]
Ultimately this is the result of the failure of the government to act democratically and to engage in dialogue and fight corruption, Gorbachev said during an address to a forum on government communications in the city of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates.
He added that the root cause of the unrest in Ukraine was an interruption of perestroika, referring to his reform policies, and of the democratic process there.

Same as Obama, Reid & Pelosi, Inc.
Gorby only became a supporter of democracy when it was forced on him.
Gorby violently put down a similar revolt in Lithuania in 1991.
I care as much about Gorbachev as I do about democracy. I’m more interested in individual liberty and freedom.
When has Gorby been interested in democracy? He never stopped being a commie did he?
He’d never given up the Soviet Union at all except for the fact that he had no choice. Now, the Liberals can fawn over him as if he’s a swell guy and it was only his love for humanity that ended communism and the Soviet Union. Balderdash.
The USSR version of Jimmy Carter...
Balderdash because the alternative to the credit going to Gorbachev was to credit a true man of the proletariat, Lech Walesa, the most hated woman in the leftist Europe, Margaret Thatcher, the American Satan, Ronald Reagan, and (gasp!) The Vicar of Christ himself, the Pope!
>> failure to act democratically
Democrats are for Marxism. # ‘em.
And Gorby is the authority now on democracy.... who knew
No, but Gorby has a pretty good feel for what the Kremlin is thinking right now, which means that they are pissed off.
“No, but Gorby has a pretty good feel for what the Kremlin is thinking right now, which means that they are pissed off.”
That’s an interesting thought.
Attaboy Gorby you got it right. Ukraine has made a lot of progress has a way to go and does not need Russian crooked apparatchiks running things
STFU splotch top. Who cares what the last Soviet dictator has to say.
Yes, it’s one of those most self-evident of lies and distortions of the truth that the Libs made the communist brute into their hero and ignored the great people who worked to end oppression that was communism. Those types of lies were so shameless, brazen, and stupid that I believe a whole lot of Americans rejected Liberalism in the 1980’s because of those lies.
Sounds like an old man with pop-bottle glasses. Lenses so think you can’t see with them or without them.
Keep riding that horse, Gorby. Its good for another couple press interviews before you die.
Gorby: Me, me, me, I, I...
