Soviet director Tengiz Abuladze suggested Wednesday that Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's glasnost policy has millions of enemies, adding that well over half the population bitterly opposed it. As quoted in the Soviet weekly Moscow News, the director of "Repentance" said that Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin's dictum about bureaucracy being the state's greatest enemy remains true today. "I am speaking of the 18-million-strong army of bureaucrats, which, as has been said many times, should be cut by two-thirds, but is quite strong enough to resist such change."
