Alex, as we all know, can't pronounce Russian. Neither can the Clue Crew, apparently. This one just said "Mee-kayl Gorbachev".

Mee-kayl. NO. Just no. It's Me-kheye-EEL GarbaCHOHFF  [mʲɪxɐˈil ɡərbɐˈt͡ɕɵf] .

I'm glad they didn't try pronouncing the Russian for "Trust but verify". Why can't Jeopardy! look up how to pronounce foreign words?

Given where he's from, would you have accepted something along the lines of [ɦərbɐˈt͡ɕɵw]?

That would be acceptable - not Russian, of course, but okay. Thing is, he claims to speak Russian. And he doesn't.
