Last Soviet leader and the only Russian statesman passed away.

Mikhail Gorbachev, the former Soviet leader who brought the Cold War to a peaceful end, has died aged 91.

Mr Gorbachev, who took power in 1985, opened up the then-USSR to the world and introduced a set of reforms at home.

But he was unable to prevent the slow collapse of the Soviet Union, from which modern Russia emerged.

Tributes have been paid worldwide, with UN chief Antonio Guterres saying he "changed the course of history".

Just like how we view Jinnah after
the partition and Pakistanis view Ayub Khan after Bangladesh. And Stalin did to his generals after Finland.

IMO Germany should give him a state funeral. After all he was behind the unification. By ending the cold war he united West and the East.
