Communism: Never Mind?
They appear to be legitimate. But they don’t flatter Mikhail Gorbachev. For example:
” … the documents cast Gorbachev in a far darker light than the one in which he is generally regarded. In one document, he laughs with the Politburo about the USSR’s downing of Korean Airlines flight 007 in 1983—a crime that was not only monstrous but brought the world very near to nuclear Armageddon.”
So far, no mainstream media outlet or publication seems interested.
Why do you think they’re being largely ignored?
