Pravda first posed the question in June of 2011.
“Can it be assumed that Raúl Castro is the Cuban Gorbachev, or Deng Xiaoping?” the article said.
More than two years later the question remains unanswered, yet Gorbachev himself now has joined the chorus of those who say the changes being made by Raúl in Cuba should be respected and allowed to develop without foreign interference.
The last president of the Soviet Union and the man who allowed Communism to die in Europe now wants to see relations between Cuba and the United States improve. Gorbachev told a group of journalists gathered in Geneva that the United States had to play a leading role in improving the relationship between the two countries, and that no foreign country should impose its views on what should happen in the island.
