What is your view of the former Soviet Union:
- Soviet Union obviously had problems, but now there are drugs, poverty, and unemployment. Life has gotten worse for the Russian people. Gangsters are running the streets. Actually, now Communist Parties are voted back to power by the people in such places like Moldova, Belarus, and Chech Republic. People didn't like the shock therapy that Yeltsin had introduced.
What is your opinion of Mikhail Gorbachev:
- I don't know much about him. I don't want to give you an answer based on ignorance.
What is your view of today's Russia:
- I don't know much about it. Sorry.
