Mikhail Gorbachev...

...was the leader of the Soviet Union from 1985 to 1991. From an article in the Times today:

Mr. Gorbachev, who oversaw the Soviet withdrawal from Afghanistan, offered his observations about the current NATO mission in that country, saying that success there was impossible for an occupier. “It would be necessary to exterminate people,” he said, emphasizing that that was obviously not an option.
