Storyboard Text

  • I'm Mikhail Gorbachev, the new leader of the Communist party! I'm young, I'm smart, and I'm ready to take names and stake claims in the Soviet Union! The good times are about to roll people!
  • Perestroika will overhaul the communist party and bring youth and enthusiasm back into our government, as well as loosening ties to the economy!
  • Glasnost will lower the social control that the government has over the populace
  • Sitting on my throne of Power, I made many decisions that would lead to the fall of the Soviet Union. I worked with President Reagan to end the Nuclear arms race between our country's, I began market reforms to try to fix the struggling economy, and loosened grip on Soviet nations like Estonia and Latvia
  • In 1988, I change the course of the Soviet Union by allowing all countries within to pursue their own path of government. By the end of the year, East Germany, Poland, Hungary and three other countries all dissolve their communist regimes. Due to this decision and many others, the Communist party puts me on house arrest at my summer home here in Crimea
  • I'm skinny Boris Yeltsin, the President of Russia! While Gorbachev is away on "vacation" I take advantage of the crumbling Soviet Union and get the people on my side! I end up victorious, and am considered the leader as Russia transitions out of Communism and into Democracy
  • With the Soviet Union completely dissolved into 15 individual republics, and Yeltsin now the Leader and soon-to-be president of Russia, I resign as the president of a country that no longer exists, on Christmas day 1991.
