Joseph Stalin, born on December 18th, 1878 in Gori (Russian Empire, now Georgia) and died on March 5th, 1953 in Moscow, is a revolutionary Bolshevik and Soviet statesman of Georgian origin. He ruled the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) from the late 1920s until his death, establishing a regime of absolute personal dictatorship. Historians consider him, to some extent, to be responsible for the death of millions of people, the number varies between 3 millions and 20 millions.
Nicknamed Sosso (short name for of Iossef or Iosseb) in his childhood, he was then called Koba (after a Georgian popular hero) by his close friends in his early years of clandestine activism within the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party (RSDLP), which he joined in 1898. It then used the pseudonym of Stalin, based on the Russian word сталь (stal), which means steel.

Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev (April 15th, 1894 - September 11th, 1971) was a Soviet statesman who led the Soviet Union during the Cold War as the first Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union from 1953 to 1964, and as as president of the Council of Ministers or Prime Minister, from 1958 to 1964. Khrushchev was responsible for the De-Stalinization of the Soviet Union, for promoting the progress of the early Soviet space program and for several relatively liberal reforms in the areas of domestic policies. His colleagues from the party of Khrushchev removed him from power in 1964, replacing him with Leonid Brezhnev as first Secretary and Alexei Kosygin as Prime Minister.
