Mikhail Gorbachev October 10th 2016, "I think the world has reached a dangerous point," Gorbachev said to state news agency RIA Novosti. "I don't want to give any concrete prescriptions but I do want to say that this needs to stop. We need to renew dialogue. Stopping it was the biggest mistake."

He did a load of nuclear deals helped bring down communism I suppose, Glasnost and Perestroika and such. A good man in may book.
Gorbachev is also known worldwide for his promotion of openness in the Soviet Union and the eastern bloc communist nations such as East Germany, Poland and Czechoslovakia. This policy became known as glasnost. Leaving behind an era defined by the Cold War, Gorbachev moved his country forward with a new period of detente between the east and west. He had to walk a delicate tightrope with older Communists wanting to slow down the changes on one side and the progressives demanding faster change and openness on the other side.
