    Who was the president of the soviet union? or the leader? I don't know what they call their leader. Anyway, I know they featured the actual guy in the HBO show, but I forgot what his name was. I just remember he has the birth mark on his head.

    That would be Mikhail Gorbachev. He was the president of the soviet union and he backed Russia quite a bit. He still tried for a communist party. Unfortunately for him, the soviet union didn't last much longer.

    Ah Gorbachev, I don't think anyone liked this guy. Wasn't he kind of a pushover anyway? I hear he's still alive too. I thought he died like ages ago, but I guess I was wrong on that.

    idk, I did a bit more research on the guy, and he doesn't seem as bad. He used to be a Marxist when he was in power. But these days he seems into social democracy. He also tried to work on freedom of speech, and even did summits with the US from time to time. He may have supported bad people at one point, but I think he changed for the better. People can change.

    Still, he wasn't great either. He had his faults and did some bad things. I don't know the guy 100% so I can't really judge him, as well I don't know his full story, so I won't judge someone until I know all the good and bad they did.
