Premier Li Peng will travel to Moscow in late April, in the first visit by a Chinese head of government to the Soviet Union in nearly 30 years, Soviet sources in Beijing said. Soviet President Mikhail S. Gorbachev's visit to Beijing last May helped to patch up Sino-Soviet relations. However, his trip was overshadowed by pro-democracy demonstrations, which ended in a bloody crackdown by the Beijing government.
