Russian MPs demands to try Mikhail Gorbachev for complicity in USSR breakup

Bishkek (AKIpress) - gor A group of Russian State Duma members from different political factions has prepared a request addressed to Russian Prosecutor General Yuri Chaika demanding to conduct a prosecutor’s investigation over the events that took place in the period of USSR breakup, ITAR-TASS reported.

The MPs expect that criminal probe would be launch against the last Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev, the Izvestia newspaper told.

In their request, the MPs note that Soviet citizens voted at a referendum for keeping the state’s integrity, but top Soviet leadership committed illegal actions, which led to the country’s breakup. They say that November 4, 1991, the directorate for supervision over the execution of law on state security under the USSR Prosecutor’s General Office filed a case against USSR President Mikhail Gorbachev. However, on the next day, the Prosecutor’s Office under pressure of the last Soviet leader cancelled the order on institution of criminal proceedings.

Gorbachev is accused of creating the USSR State Council and chairing this institution, which was not stipulated by the Soviet Constitution as a government authority. It was the State Council that adopted orders on recognizing the independence of Baltic Soviet republics, although such decisions could not be made even by legitimate authorities.

Among the initiators of the request are United Russia MPs Yevgeny Fyodorov and Anton Romanov, members of the Communist Party (KPRF) Igan Nikitchuk and Oleg Denisenko, as well as representative of the Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR) faction Mikhail Degtyaryov.
