Lawyer Sergei Zhorin in his Telegram channel said that at the moment social networks are actively ironic about Gorbachev's participation in advertising shootings.
He specified that in 1997 Gorbachev was in dire need of money. He was already earning a little by lecturing, and hyperinflation had eaten away his entire pension. At that moment, he received an offer to shoot in a pizza commercial. According to media reports, the budget for the video and Gorbachev's fee was about one million dollars.
“Everyone evaluates his activities in a different way, but one thing is for sure: during his presidency, he did not get rich with super-wealth. At the same time, modern officials can only laugh at this: “I couldn’t even steal my pension,” Zhorin noted.
Earlier it was reported that Russian singer Yuri Loza said that he would never dedicate his song to the deceased former president USSR Mikhail Gorbachev. In his opinion, Gorbachev “torn apart” the country and inflicted enormous damage on it with his initiatives and reforms.
