Former Soviet president Mikhail Gorbachev declared the end of the Cold War between the Soviet Union and Western countries a "general victory."

"But Western politicians, and above all in the United States, declared that they had won this war. They were declaring it everywhere. The media agreed," Gorbachev told the German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

"The leaders of Western countries did not take into account how Russia will comment on this interpretation of the end of the Cold War, and how this will affect the future relations between the two sides, especially since the West began to act as if everything is allowed for him."

Gorbachev stressed that Russia's Western partners "have failed to overcome the challenges of the New Testament," pointing out that this fact is a major cause of the current differences between them and Moscow.

"But some politicians in Europe have recently begun to think that attempts to isolate Russia are hurting all sides, and that it is necessary to find a way out jointly for all parties. I know that Russia is thinking the same too."
