- After Brezhnev there were two short term leaders in Russia:
- Gorbachev took over in 1985
- Began “developed socialism” where he wanted to rid the USSR of corruption
- Gorbachev was forced to change his ways after the 1986 Chernobyl disaster
- Parallel to Lenin and Kronstadt mutiny
He comes into power and makes lots of changes but he really changed the way communism was. He called this developed socialism, wanted to get rid up corrupt socialism. Chernobly disaster prompted him for change.
