    Popular US-based porn website xHamster has prepared a special surprise to celebrate the 85th birthday of the first and last president of the Soviet Union, Mikhail Gorbachev.

    The porn site changed the appearance of its logo — a hamster — to bear  resemblance to the former Soviet president. The hamster now wears glasses on its nose and has the signature birthmark on its head.

    As for the xHamster's tagline, it was changed from "Just porn no bullsh*t" to "Glasnost! Perestroika!"

    xHamster also congratulated the former president via Twitter, posting a greeting and a song by Gorbachev himself.

    ​Representatives of the adult site explained that the site's most active users are Germans, with more than 2.7 billion visits per year, and they take Mikhail Gorbachev — with his reputation as the Berlin Wall destroyer — for their national hero. Most of those users are men over 40, many of whom likely still keep swag with Soviet-German flags, portraits of Gorbachev and Honecker, and "Glasnost! Perestroika!" slogans in their drawers and cupboards.  

    "xHamster believes in real democracy, freedom of speech and freedom of choice for an adult whether to watch legal adult content," a representative told reporters. "And for us, ‘Russian Gorby' is one of the modern symbols of such democracy."

    Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday congratulated Gorbachev via a telegram, in which he acknowledged the former head of state's proficiency, experience and creativity as a contribution to the development of international humanitarian cooperation.
