US President Joe Biden has paid tribute to former Soviet leader Mikhail Goberchev, who has died aged 91 in Moscow. Biden said in a White House statement late Tuesday that Goberchev worked to bring democratic reforms to the Soviet Union after decades of brutal political repression.

He said, “These were the actions of a rare leader – one with the courage to believe that a different future was possible and to risk his entire career to achieve it. The result was a safer world and more freedom for millions.”

Biden also said Goberchev believed in ‘glasnost’ and ‘perestroika’, not just as slogans, but as a way forward for the people of the Soviet Union after so many years of isolation and deprivation.
