Gorbachev comes to Romania


Ex Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev will be in Romania on December 2, at the invitation of Realitatea TV, daily ‘Adevarul’ reported yesterday. Gorbachev was previously in Romania 20 years ago, on July 7-8, 1989, at the invitation of late communist dictator Nicolae Ceausescu.


At the moment, the man whose reforms led to the fall of communism in Eastern Europe and the execution of the Ceausescu couple, attended a meeting of the Warsaw Treaty’s Consultative Political Committee, the newspaper writes. The publication further quotes bits of Gorbachev’s memoirs, in which the former Soviet leader describes his two visits to Bucharest (in 1989 and on May 25-27, 1987) and his relationship with Ceausescu.


“I met Ceausescu long before I became secretary general. As secretary of the CPSU (Communist Party of the Soviet Union), I had the opportunity of meeting him whenever he came to the USSR. He wasn’t too appreciated in Moscow, his ambitions and ostentatious relationship with the West were not regarded with benevolence,” the memoirs show, according to ‘Adevarul’. Moreover, Gorbachev also wrote that Ceausescu was permanently trying to reassert his independence from the Soviet Union. Gorbachev’s first visit to Romania took place in 1987, 11 years after the last visit of a Soviet leader in the country – that of Leonid Brezhnev in 1976, the publication added.

But, practically, it will be a real launching, about which the leaders from the territory and the MPs were informed on Sunday. The exact date for the launching of Basescu at the presidential elections is still uncertain, the discussion at the top focusing on a date close to October 10.
