President Mikhail Gorbachev was responsible for ending Communist rule in Eastern Europe and signed two broad disarmament pacts that led to the end of the Cold War. Glasnost, political openness, was introduced by President Gorbachev. It enhanced freedom of expression, including religious expression and access to media. As a result of his extraordinary achievements, Gorbachev was awarded the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize, the Orders of Lenin, the Red Banner of Labor, and the Badge of Honor.
President Gorbachev continues to strive towards achieving his global vision of peace. In 1992, he became President of The Gorbachev Foundation, a nonprofit, non-partisan educational foundation that addresses the challenges of the post-Cold War world. In 1993, he founded Green Cross International, the environmental organization that helps ensure a just, sustainable and secure future for all by fostering a new sense of global interdependence and shared responsibility in humanity’s relationship with nature.
