Reading Time: 1 minute

The 91-year-old Mikhail Gorbachev, a former Soviet leader who was instrumental in bringing an end to the Cold War.

Gorbachev passed away on Tuesday at the Central Clinical Hospital, according to Russian news sources.

The Cold War's peaceful conclusion is credited to the late Soviet leader.

Geopolitical tension existed between the United States, the Soviet Union, and their allies from 1947 to 1991 during the Cold War.

Gorbachev received the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize for his part in putting an end to the conflict.

Gorbachev, who took over as head of the Soviet Union in March 1985, made it through a coup attempt in 1991 but was unable to stop the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Communist Party, KGB, and military figures hostile to his management style carried out the coup.
He served as the Communist Party's general secretary from 1949 to 1991 and was the eighth and final leader of the Soviet Union.

Gorbachev was not well-liked in Russia, despite the fact that he played a crucial role in preventing a nuclear conflict and bringing an end to the Cold War.

The Novodevichy cemetery in Moscow is where he will be laid to rest with his wife, according to Tass, a Russian news service.
