The first president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev, spoke about the letters in which he warned the initiators of the creation of the Commonwealth of Independent States about the possible consequences, but they did not listen to him, and now the representatives of the CIS "meet, but do not look each other in the eyes."
Both letters dealt with the fate of the country and people. It is a pity that they brushed it off, did not pay attention. Even then, things could still have gone differently. As it turned out, the letter to the parliamentarians contained prophetic words, '' Gorbachev said in an interview with the press secretary of the Gorbachev Foundation, Vladimir Polyakov.
He clarified that he had warned in these letters that the adoption of the document (on the creation of the CIS) "will either bring society closer to new forms of life, or our peoples will be extricating themselves for a long time alone."
They didn’t listen. "Come on, come on! Atu him! " Defeated the main enemy - Gorbachev. So what? Until now, in poverty, in conflicts, in wars, in squabbles. Until now, they meet, but they do not look into each other's eyes. Commonwealth, however, - quotes RIA Novosti Gorbachev's words.
As NEWS.ru reported, Mikhail Gorbachev remembered the first time he saw the girl Raisa, who later became his only wife. A fateful meeting took place at the dance, but the continuation of this story could not have happened, because, as the politician admitted, both of them then pretended that they were not at all interested in each other.
