glasnost ‎(countable and uncountable, plural glasnosts)

  1. (now historical) 1980s policy of the Soviet Union under Gorbachev to allow more government transparency; often paired with perestroika
    • 2004, Chris Wallace, Character: Profiles in Presidential Courage
      Gorbachev would introduce glasnost (openness and freedom) and perestroika (economic restructuring) to Russia under his tenure, ultimately freeing thousands of political prisoners and dissidents and trying to address the shortages in food and goods that had become the hallmarks of the failing Soviet economy.
