Shortly after this, Khrushchev continued to alter Party policy with his change in approach to foreign policy. This policy of a peaceful coexistence was meant to improve relations between the Soviet Union and the United State and had major implications for the preceding events of the Cold War. I am analyzing the period from to During this time, Khrushchev implemented his policy of peaceful coexistence, but seemed to deviate from it during a number of flashpoints in history.
Wages were much higher in the Donbas than in the Kursk region, and Sergei Khrushchev generally left his family in Kalinovka, returning there when he had enough money. He was schooled for a total of four years, part in the village parochial school and part under Shevchenko's tutelage in Kalinovka's state school.
According to Khrushchev in his memoirs, Shevchenko was a freethinker who upset the villagers by not attending church, and when her brother visited, he gave the boy books which had been banned by the Imperial Government.
Upon Khrushevs policies that apprenticeship, the teenage Khrushchev was hired by a factory. He was employed by a workshop that serviced ten mines, and he was involved in several strikes that demanded higher pay, better working conditions, and an end to the war.
Inthey had a daughter, Khrushevs policies, and ina son, Leonid. Khrushchev was elected to the worker's council or soviet in Rutchenkovo, and in May he became its chairman.
His biographer, Khrushevs policies Taubmansuggests that Khrushchev's delay in affiliating himself with the Bolsheviks was because he felt closer to the Mensheviks who prioritised economic progress, whereas the Bolsheviks sought political power.
In late or early he was mobilized into the Red Army as a political commissar. The young commissar came under fire many times,  though many of the war stories he would tell in later life dealt more with his and his troops' cultural awkwardness, rather than with combat.
The commissar returned for the funeral and, loyal to his Bolshevik principlesrefused to allow his wife's coffin to enter the local church.
With the only way into the churchyard through the church, he had the coffin lifted and passed over the fence into the burial ground, shocking the village. At that time, the movement was split by Lenin 's New Economic Policywhich allowed for some measure of private enterprise and was seen as an ideological retreat by some Bolsheviks.
He helped restart the machines key parts and papers had been removed by the pre-Soviet mineowners and he wore his old mine outfit for inspection tours.
However, he refused the offer, seeking to be assigned to the newly established technical college tekhnikum in Yuzovka, though his superiors were reluctant to let him go.
As he had only four years of formal schooling, he applied to the training program rabfak attached to the tekhnikum that was designed to bring undereducated students to high-school level, a prerequisite for entry into the tekhnikum.
He briefly joined supporters of Leon Trotsky against those of Joseph Stalin over the question of party democracy. The two soon separated, though Khrushchev helped Marusia in later years, especially when Marusia's daughter by a previous relationship suffered a fatal illness.
Soon after the abortive marriage, Khrushchev met Nina Petrovna Kukharchuka well-educated Party organizer and daughter of well-to-do Ukrainian peasants. They had three children together: In mid, Khrushchev was appointed Party secretary of the Petrovo-Marinsky raikomor district, near Stalino.
Khrushchev is left behind Yagoda. Khrushchev met Lazar Kaganovich as early as InKaganovich became Party head in Ukraine  and Khrushchev, falling under his patronage,  was rapidly promoted. He was appointed second in command of the Stalino party apparatus in late Within nine months his superior, Konstantin Moiseyenko, was ousted, which, according to Taubman, was due to Khrushchev's instigation.
Khrushchev never completed his studies there, but his career in the Party flourished. ByKhrushchev had become second in command, behind Kaganovich, of the Moscow city Party organizationand inhe became Party leader for the city  and a member of the Party's Central Committee.
In his memoirs, Khrushchev stated that Alliluyeva spoke well of him to her husband. His biographer, William Tompson, downplays the possibility, stating that Khrushchev was too low in the Party hierarchy to enjoy Stalin's patronage, and that if influence was brought to bear on Khrushchev's career at this stage, it was by Kaganovich.
Faced with an already-announced opening date of 7 NovemberKhrushchev took considerable risks in the construction and spent much of his time down in the tunnels.
When the inevitable accidents did occur, they were depicted as heroic sacrifices in a great cause. The Metro did not open until 1 Maybut Khrushchev received the Order of Lenin for his role in its construction.
Stalin's office records show meetings at which Khrushchev was present as early as The two increasingly built a good relationship. Khrushchev greatly admired the dictator and treasured informal meetings with him and invitations to Stalin's dacha, while Stalin felt warm affection for his young subordinate.
Central to this campaign were the Moscow Trialsa series of show trials of the purged top leaders of the party and the military.
Inas the trials proceeded, Khrushchev expressed his vehement support: Everyone who rejoices in the successes achieved in our country, the victories of our party led by the great Stalin, will find only one word suitable for the mercenary, fascist dogs of the Trotskyite- Zinovievite gang.
That word is execution.In terms of foreign policy was Khrushchev a reformer? Joseph Stalin’s death on March 5, gave birth to a new era in the Soviet Union’s history.
Russia - The Khrushchev era (–64): After Stalin’s death in , a power struggle for leadership ensued, which was won by Nikita Khrushchev.
