Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev (15 April 1894 – 11 September 1971) was a Russian Communist who was the leader of the Soviet Union from around 1953 to 1964. There was a limited "de-Stalinization", including a reduction of the Gulag system and mentioning some of the atrocities that occurred during Stalin's regime. However, support for political reform was limited, as demonstrated by the continued repression of political opponents in Communist countries and the bloody crushing of the Hungarian Revolutions of 1956.
