Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev (19 December 1906 – 10 November 1982) was the leader of the Soviet Union between 1964 and 1982, although he initially had to share powers with others and he had declining health for period before his death.

During his regime, Communism reached its maximum extent regarding controlled geographical areas, in large part through the use of military force. However, he has been criticized for a costly imperial overreach and a stagnating economy.
