Gorbachev (91) suffers from kidney problems

According to the report, the 91-year-old former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has growing health problems. He now has to undergo regular dialysis due to kidney problems.

According to a media report, former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev has serious kidney problems. “The ex-president of the USSR must go for a bloodshed,” the Russian telegram “Mas” said on Monday. Accordingly, a 91-year-old man has recurrent health problems that worsen from time to time.

According to “Mash”, Gorbachev is constantly being examined by doctors for a year. He recently had to go to the hospital for dialysis. “His blood is being cleaned there,” he says. Gorbachev’s kidney disease has not yet been officially confirmed.

Several lawsuits against Gorbachev

Gorbachev became Secretary General of the CPSU in 1985 and was thus a quasi-Soviet head of state. In 1990, he was formally elected the first and only president of the Soviet Union. During his tenure, he tried to reform the country through “perestroika” (transformation) and “glasnost” (openness), but eventually the Soviet Union disintegrated.

At the beginning of the year, several Lithuanians filed a lawsuit against Gorbachev for failing to stop Soviet troops from crushing the Lithuanian independence movement more than 30 years ago. On January 13, 1991, clashes between protesters and the Soviet army in Vilnius killed 14 civilians and injured 700 people. The lawsuit was filed by relatives of those killed.
