Answer: C. Perestroika

Perestroika was a political movement established for the reformation of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union during the 80s. Its literary meaning was “reconstruction.” This referred to the restructuring of the economic and political system of the Soviet Union made to end the era of stagnation in the region.
