The last General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev, died at the age of 93. His legacy is mixed, either blamed for the fall of the Soviet Union or hailed for his role in the fall of the Berlin Wall.
But how did Gorbachev's leadership contribute to reducing the risk of nuclear war? In this episode, Shirikrishna Upadhyaya talks to Pranav R Satyanath about Gorbachev's role in negotiating the most significant arms control agreements at the end of the Cold War.
