    • DOUBLE PORTRAIT: BREZHNEVGORBACHEV (II)

      Is it an accident that at certain time periods cut by the history it was L.I.Brezhnev and M.S.Gorbachev that became heads of the country? Of course, no. The very fact that both personalities significantly impacted the life of the state and society shows that they were in demand from inside as well as from outside and they were integrated with the nation under those conditions. Without knowing, at least at the approximate level, what kind of people they were it is impossible to imagine the more or less real picture of those times. In the essay by A.Chernyaev written on the basis of his personal memories, the author, who worked within Brezhnev’s group of speechwriters and consultants for more than 10 years and who, after Gorbachev came to power, became his assistant on international affairs, touches upon the whole number of topics that allow to better understand these people as individuals and politicians and to look into their “nitty-gritty of politics”. In the second part of the essay published in this issue (for the beginning see Politeia, 2012, 2) the author talks about the approaches of two leaders to solving economic problems of our country, analyzes their attitudes in the sphere of ideology and provides overall assessment of the results of their activity.
