1987 Gorbaciov and perestrojka

Mikhail Gorbachev, with the socio-economic reforms known as "Perestrojka", begins a process of modernization of the Soviet Union which leads the country and its citizens towards an opening to the Western world and a process of liberalization and privatization never known previously.
It is an example of an impetus towards political and cultural renewal for other nations as well, such as the fall of the Berlin Wall in November of 1989, and Gorbachev, for his role, is awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1990.
