I was wondering about your thoughts on this topic. I've only recently found out about it. For those of you who don't know
Valery Mikhailovich Sablin was a Soviet Navy officer and a member of the Communist Party. He saw immense corruption in Breshnev's administration and he attempted a mutiny to bring about change by radio and television, recount the sins and hypocrisy of the Soviet system and demand reforms to revive the Leninist principles of justice.

Sadly he was excecuted a few months after.
