Russian Government Gets Gorbachev’s Name Wrong in Birthday Letter

The Russian supervision in an congratulatory minute to former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev gave him a wrong name, a screenshot posted Wednesday by publisher Lidia Kelly on her Twitter comment revealed.

The screenshot suggested that Gorbachev was called Sergei in a minute published on a central supervision website Wednesday. The minute contained birthday wishes to a former personality from Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

The name was after corrected in a statement.

On Wednesday, a initial and final boss of a Soviet Union Mikhail Gorbachev distinguished his 85th birthday.

His presidency was noted by a finish of a Cold War, a withdrawal of Soviet infantry from Afghanistan and a fall of a Soviet Union.
