Statement On The Death Of Mikhail Gorbachev

“He was a bold leader who was unafraid to confront reality and to envision an historic, constructive and humane path forward for his country and for the world.  I met him both in Russia and here at home and photographed him with President GHW Bush signing an arms agreement, when I talked with them both.  He believed in a modern Russia and would never be the war criminal that Putin is.”
