In GTA IV there is a club called perestrokia, the club is run by Mikhail Fausten.

Towards the end of the cold war between America and Russia, the Russian leader Mikhail Gorbachev set up a policy called perestrokia (the same name as the clib in IV). So what im trying to say is i think there is a link between Mikhail Gorbachev and Mikhail Fausten in the game: They are both Russian, there first names are both Mikhail and they both have something to do with perestrokia.


Sorry if this topic has already been brought up. I only dscovered this last week.

It's a common name equivalent to Michael. Perestrokia is a reasonable name for a Russian club in the U.S. because it's a word Americans have heard and associate positively with the end of the Cold War. Gorbachev is not a paranoid drug addicted thug as far as anyone knows.
