Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev is one of the key figures of 20th-century history, and his role in transforming the political landscape of his own country and his leadership in ending the Cold War is hard to overestimate.
More than 20 years since he helped change the world and ushered in a new era of global collaboration, Gorbachev reveals the untold tale of his rise to power in the award-winning documentary "Gorbachev: A Man Who Changed the World," which airs on Newsmax TV
on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.
The documentary takes a fresh and in-depth look at Gorbachev's role in his country's emergence out of Soviet Communism, as well as his global significance as a great international statesman when he served as leader of the Soviet Union from 1985 to 1991.
With unique access to Gorbachev himself, the film presents his own perspective on the political drama in which he was the central figure, as well as his personal insights on his own transformation as a politician and his thoughts on where Russia is heading. It shows him not just as a leader, but as an individual.
One Gorbachev statement in the film that is likely to raise eyebrows: "I made a mistake with [his successor Boris] Yeltsin. I should have gotten rid of him."
The documentary adds to the diverse programming featured on Newsmax TV, the new lifestyle, news, and information channel.
