Nikita Khrushchev, Russian general and politician, 7th Premier of the Soviet Union (April 15, 1894 - September 11, 1971) was born Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev in Kalinovka village in what is now Russia's Kursk Oblast. Khrushchev led the Soviet Union during a critical part of the Cold War. He served as First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964, and as Chairman of the Council of Ministers, or Premier, from 1958 to 1964. During his rule, Khrushchev stunned the communist world with his denunciation of Stalin's crimes. Khrushchev was responsible for the de-Stalinization of the Soviet Union, for backing the progress of the early Soviet space program, and for several relatively liberal reforms in areas of domestic policy. After some false starts, and a narrowly avoided nuclear war over Cuba, he conducted successful negotiations with the United States to reduce Cold War tensions. His proclivity toward recklessness led the Kremlin leadership to strip him of power, replacing him with Leonid Brezhnev as First Secretary and Alexei Kosygin as Premier.
