Vitaly Shevchenko discussed Russian citizens going to visit the now deceased former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev in Moscow. Mr Shevchenko explained the importance of the venue where Mr Gorbachev lay. And claimed it was the location where Vladimir Lenin had previously given roughly 50 speeches to the Russian people. Mr Shevchenko told Naga Munchetty that you would not see Russian Dictator Putin visiting the cemetery or coffin.

Ms Munchetty said: “This is what we’re seeing at the moment inside Moscow with a coffin, and him lying in state.

“And people will be, well literally just paying their respects I mean we saw President Putin lay some red roses I think it was yesterday.”

Mr Shevchenko told the BBC: “It was at the hospital where Gorbachev died.

“But this venue where he is lying in state right now is very important, this is where all the Soviet leaders lay in state.

“This is where Lenin made about 50 speeches, this is very key but what we’re not going to see is President Putin visiting the coffin at the venues or going to the cemetery.”

 Mr Venediktov added: “Gorbachev’s reforms – political, not economic – were all destroyed.

“Nilch, zero, ashes. When Gorbachev was leaving, there were 4,000 NATO Response Forces in Europe. Four thousand.

“Now NATO has announced 300,000 people by the end of next year. So today there are 40,000 – and will be 300,000.”
