Answer by Dmitry Bergoltsev
not have given the country to a group of oligarchs, and not have let russia fall into a state of chaos. He illegally shut down the USSR. Gorbachev (who is just as much to blame) put the vote to all citizens of Soviet Union whether it should continue to exist, but with a revised system of government (still communist, but like china), and 74 percent of voters wanted it to stay in existance. Yeltsin ignored this and claimed that the USSR was dead, and signed the document that Russia was now an independent country, not part of any Union. Gorbachev then had no choice but to sign the document ceasing the existance of Soviet Union. I will always believe that quality of life in russia and world power would have been better than now, had USSR still existed.
