Former Soviet Union (Russia) leader Mikhail Gorbachev is dead.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Gorbachev died on Tuesday at a central hospital in Moscow, Russia.

“Gorbachev died this evening after a serious and long illness,” the Central Clinical Hospital in Moscow said late on Tuesday.

For his political contributions, he received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990 as a symbol of the end of an era that began with the end of World War II, although his legacy continues to be uncomfortable for nationalist Russians, who consider him a traitor, so his image is not recognized as that of other leaders associated with times of greatness in Russia.

Gorbachev will be buried in the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow, where the remains of prominent figures in the history of this country are buried, as well as his wife, Raisa.

In a post on Twitter, Boris Johnson said he was “saddened” to hear of the former leader’s death, at a time of “Vladimir Putin’s aggression in Ukraine”.

Leader of the Labour party, Sir Keir Starmer said Gorbachev was “one of the great figures” of the last century who will “forever be remembered”.
