He was awarded the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize for these reforms. On August 24, 1991, after a failed coup and a huge demonstration in favor of Boris Yeltsin, President of the Russian Republic of the U.S.S.R., Gorbachev resigned as Communist Party leader and several Russian republics declared their independence. On December 25, 1991, Gorbachev resigned as President of the Soviet Union (U.S.S.R.). The next day the Soviet Union ceased to exist and divided into separate republics. The presentation of the Gorbachev Foundation mentioned in this letter took place less than 10 weeks after Gorbachev resigned.
