He based his demand by the crimes committed during Gorbachev’s ruling over USSR. Orders on dispersing of anti-Soviet demonstrations in Tbilisi, Baku and Vilnius in 1989-1991s are among Bukovsky’s claims made against Gorbachev.

The court has not accepted Bukovsky’s appeal. Court’s respond to the plaintiff reads that at present, Mikhail Gorbachev has arrived in Great Britain with official mission and is going to meet with Prime Minister David Cameron. And it means inviolability of former soviet leaders.

But Bukovsky said that Gorbachev’s current visit to London takes personal character: “Because he is not government official and an not represent Russia”. The dissident is going to complain from the court’s decision.

Remind that, yesterday, magnificent reception was held in London Royal Albert-hall on occasion of 80th anniversary of Mikhail Gorbachev.

In December 1976, in his eleventh year of psychiatric hospitals and prison camps, Bukovsky was exchanged by the Soviet government for the imprisoned Chilean Communist leader Luis Corvalán at Zürich airport. Though he wanted to participate in 2008 presidential elections, the CEC did not register his candidacy. Vladimir Bukovsky is considered famous dissident such as Andrei Sakharov and Alexander Solzhenitsyn.
