+ Mikhail Sergeyevich Gorbachev

This biographical note stresses that if familiarity developed between Mulroney and Gorbachev, the Soviet President should be called Mikhail Sergeyevich, not Mikhail. The authors included phonetic spellings of Gorbachev and other Soviet luminaries' names in biographical notes for Mulroney's convenience. Such details may have been valuable to Mulroney, who recalled in his memoirs a sense that the Kremlin was a long way from his hometown of Baie Comeau.
