Son of Khrushchev. The mystery of death is not disclosed

47
March 11, 1943. The plane of the 18th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment did not return from combat sortie. The war ... No wonder. The pilot was Lieutenant Leonid Khrushchev. Spring 1943 - the height of the Great Patriotic War. Combat pilots died constantly, in large numbers. But the command of not only the 18th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment, but also the 303th Fighter Regiment aviation division, aroused in earnest. The 25-year-old senior lieutenant Leonid Khrushchev was the eldest son of Nikita Khrushchev, who at that time was the first secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine.


Son of Khrushchev. The mystery of death is not disclosed


The place of the alleged crash of the aircraft, which was piloted by Leonid Khrushchev, was studied thoroughly - even local partisans were attracted. But neither the wreckage of the aircraft, nor the body of the pilot was found. Leonid Nikitovich Khrushchev went missing. The fate of the son of the future Soviet leader is still unknown. The official version says that he was captured and killed in the German camp - like the son of Joseph Stalin, Jacob Dzhugashvili. If this was indeed the case, then it explains a lot - including the fact why neither Leonid Khrushchev’s plane nor the body were found.

Nikita Sergeevich Khrushchev, the future General Secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU, was married three times in his life. The first time he married in 1914 year, another twenty years old young men - a mechanic mine. His wife was Efrosinya Ivanovna Pisareva, who bore two children to Nikita Khrushchev - daughter Julia in the 1916 year and son Leonid in the 1917 year. In 1920, Euphrosyne died of typhoid. Young Khrushchev was left with two children, but in 1922 he married a certain Marus, a single mother. With her, Nikita Sergeevich did not live much and already in 1924, he played a wedding with Nina Kukharchuk, who became his companion for the rest of his life. Thus, Leonid Nikitovich Khrushchev was the son of Nikita Sergeevich Khrushchev from his first marriage. He was born 10 in November 1917, in Yuzovka, where Nikita Sergeevich lived and worked at that time.



Nikita Khrushchev's career has rapidly gone uphill since the beginning of the 1930s. If in 1922, Nikita was still a modest student in the workers' school, in 1929, he entered the Industrial Academy and was elected secretary of the party committee. In 1931, 36-year-old Nikita Khrushchev became the first secretary of the Baumansky District Committee of the All-Union Communist Party (Bolsheviks) of the city of Moscow - a colossal position for yesterday's provincial party leader. By this time, Leonid Khrushchev was almost fourteen years old. It is now the son of the prefect of any metropolitan area waiting for a cloudless future in an elite university - Russian or foreign, and then a successful business or a quick career in government. Then, in the 1930s, there were slightly different orders. Leonid Khrushchev, after studying at the school for working youth, went to work at the plant. Apparently, like his father, Lenya Khrushchev was “young and early” - by the 18 years he had already been twice married. The first wife was Rosa Treivas, but Leonid broke up with her quickly - under pressure from Nikita. Married to the second wife of Esther Naumovna Etinger, 17-year-old Leonid Khrushchev had a son, Yuri Leonidovich (1935-2003).

“The first thing is airplanes, but then the girls” - it was sung in the popular Soviet song of those years. But Leonid Khrushchev had girls a little earlier than airplanes. In 1935, 20-year-old Leonid entered the Balashov Civil Aviation Pilot School fleet, which he graduated in 1937 and began to work as an instructor pilot. In 1939, Leonid voluntarily asked for the Red Army and was enrolled in the preparatory course of the command faculty of the Air Force Academy. Zhukovsky, but did not study at the academy, limiting himself to graduating from the Engels Military Aviation School in 1940. When the Soviet-Finnish war began, Leonid Khrushchev asked to the front.

Pilot young officer was courageous. He made more than thirty combat sorties, flew an Ar-2 aircraft, participated in the bombardments of the Mannerheim line. Naturally, when the Great Patriotic War began, Leonid Khrushchev went to the front. He fought from the beginning of July on the 1941 of the year - as part of the 134-th Bomber Aviation Regiment, which was part of the 46-th Air Division. Already in the summer of 1941, Khrushchev Jr. made 12 combat missions and was presented to the Order of the Red Banner.

On July 27, 1941, Leonid Khrushchev’s plane was shot down near the Isocha station. The pilot barely managed to fly to the front line and landed in the neutral zone, seriously injuring his leg when landing. For almost a year, Leonid was out of order. Leonid's health was sent to Kuibyshev. After severe injuries, another combat Soviet pilot from a high-ranking family, Stepan Mikoyan, son of the USSR People’s Commissar for Foreign Trade Anastas Ivanovich Mikoyan, was treated there. Leonid Khrushchev and Stepan Mikoyan became friends. In February 1942, Leonid Khrushchev finally found the award. Senior pilot of the 134th Bomber Aviation Regiment, Lieutenant Khrushchev was awarded the Order of the Red Banner for 27 sorties and German bombing tanks, artillery and crossing in the Desna area.



It was at the time when Leonid Khrushchev was in the rear that the first strange история, the reliability of which is unknown so far. The fact that Stepan Mikoyan, Leonid’s close friend, and Rada Ajubey, Nikita Sergeevich’s daughter from his third marriage and Leonid's half-sister, spoke about it in favor of the veracity of this story. Allegedly, undergoing restoration in the rear, Leonid Khrushchev, like many soldiers and officers awaiting their return to the front, whiled away the time in drunken feasts. On one of these evenings, he was amused by shooting in a bottle and, through carelessness, he shot one of his drinking companions - a military sailor. Leonid Khrushchev was arrested and 8 was given years - with serving at the front. It was inappropriate to send a decent combat pilot, order bearer, and even the son of the first secretary of the CP (b) Ukr. SSR to the camp. Leonid, who had not yet fully departed from injury, was sent to the front and enrolled in the 18 Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment - the same one that included the French pilots Normandie-Neman. Again, we note that this is an unofficial version that some sources do not share.

Be that as it may, in December 1942, Leonid Khrushchev was again at the front. He managed to complete 28 training and 6 combat missions, to participate in 2 air battles, before 11 March 1943 disappeared. After a month and a half of unsuccessful searches, the name of Leonid Khrushchev was excluded from the lists of the military unit, and in June 1943 of the year he was posthumously awarded the Order of the Patriotic War I degree. Further very interesting events begin. It would seem that the family of the deceased war hero, and even the son of the main communist of Ukraine, should have bathed in honors.

But, soon after the tragedy that occurred with Leonid Khrushchev, his wife, Lyubov Sizykh, was arrested. Nobody was even embarrassed by the fact that the widow of the deceased pilot had a daughter from Leonid - for that period three-year-old Yulia L. Khrushcheva. Nikita Sergeevich could not or did not want to protect his daughter-in-law. Love Sizykh was accused of espionage and sent to the camp for five years. She served the term “from bell to bell”, and after the camp, in 1948, she was left in exile in Kazakhstan and finally released from prison only in 1956, having spent 13 years in prisons and exile. What was it and why did the widow of the hero and the mother of his little daughter do this? Was Love Sizykh really a spy, a traitor to the Motherland? But what data could it have to do with? And why was she not pardoned if only for the sake of her husband’s memory and for the sake of her daughter?

Vadim Nikolaevich Udilov served in state security for nearly forty years, completing his service as a major general and deputy chief of one of the directorates of the KGB of the USSR. Another 17 February 1998 of the year was an article with his memories, in which the former counterintelligence told a very interesting version of the "death" of Leonid Khrushchev. Allegedly, Leonid Khrushchev flew to the other side of the front and surrendered to the Germans. The pilot quickly persuaded to cooperate. On the escape of Leonid became known in Moscow. Soon, a special group SMERSH conducted a brilliant operation to capture Leonid. He was brought to Moscow. Nikita Khrushchev came to the capital urgently from the front. He ran to the reception personally to Joseph Stalin.

According to the memoirs of another senior KGB officer, General Mikhail Dokuchaev, who served as deputy head of the 9-th Main Directorate of the KGB of the USSR, who was guarding the first persons of the state, Stalin Nikita made a real tantrum - with tears in his eyes begged not to shoot his son. But Joseph Vissarionovich was adamant. It was possible to close my eyes to drunken shooting in Kuibyshev and to give an opportunity to atone for the blood at the front. But betrayal is too much. Leonid Nikitovich Khrushchev was shot. Again, this is only one of the versions of the death of Nikita Sergeevich's son.

But, if everything was as it was told later by veterans of the security agencies, then much in subsequent events becomes clear. Then there are no questions for the arrest of Lyubov Sizykh - she was convicted as the wife of a traitor to the Motherland and given only five years in the camps (by the way, if Love really was a spy, in wartime it would have received a much longer term or death penalty). For obvious reasons, he did not intervene for Lyubov Sizykh and Nikita Sergeevich Khrushchev. Moreover, he distanced himself as much as possible from her and even released Love from exile only in 1956 — by this time Khrushchev had been in charge of the Soviet state for the third year, what cost him the release of his former daughter-in-law and his granddaughter's mother? True, the daughter of Leonid and Lyubov Yulia Nikita Sergeevich nevertheless adopted.

According to the version of the betrayal of Leonid Khrushchev, Nikita Sergeevich very hard experienced the execution of his eldest son. Although he himself miraculously remained in leadership, at that time any infiltration of information that the son of the first secretary of the Communist Party of Ukraine had betrayed their homeland would seriously discredit the Soviet power, Khrushchev would keep a grudge against Joseph Stalin all his life. Nikita Sergeyevich's hatred of Stalin, if you accept this version, was not political, but personal. The all-powerful leader of the Soviet state and the Communist Party turned into a personal enemy for Khrushchev — he could not forgive the death of his son.



If this is so, then the reasons for the harsh criticism that Nikita Khrushchev brought down the late Stalin from the rostrum of the 20th CPSU Congress were understandable. It turns out that the de-Stalinization of the Soviet state had personal reasons. Of course, it was beneficial for both Soviet dissidents and the West to view de-Stalinization as an “objective process,” which, they say, even Soviet leaders understood the “criminal nature of the Stalin regime.” For the same reason, the details of the true fate of Leonid Nikitovich Khrushchev were kept in deep secret. It was extremely unprofitable to present the son of Nikita Khrushchev a traitor, as this would cast a shadow on the very de-Stalinization - that Nikita was guided by personal motives, starting criticism of the Stalinist system.

On the other hand, there is no real evidence in favor of the version of Leonid Nikitovich Khrushchev’s betrayal. Counter Uduilov himself said that all the documents that could tell about it were diligently destroyed in Soviet times. In addition, many contemporaries of Leonid Khrushchev still adhered to the version that Senior Lieutenant Khrushchev died in German captivity. Of course, the capture of a Soviet officer, according to the dominant ideology did not paint, but it is not a betrayal. Especially, if in the end Leonid was indeed killed by the Nazis.

Julia Leonidovna Khrushchev, the daughter of Leonid, already in our time - in 2006-2008. - has repeatedly filed lawsuits against Channel One. The fact is that back in 2006, the movie “Star of the Epoch” was shown on television, which presented a version of Leonid Khrushchev’s betrayal. This angered Yulia Leonidovna and she demanded to compensate her for moral damage, but all the courts dismissed the claims of the granddaughter of the Soviet Secretary General. Some observers have argued that the memory of Leonid Khrushchev is slandered on purpose — now, they say, reformers are not in fashion, but the authorities want to rehabilitate tough methods and an authoritarian management style. Other analysts are less categorical - to whom now, after 70 and more, is up to the fate of the future son of the future Soviet secretary-general, who died young. It is no longer possible to assert either the correctness of this version or its fallacy. Together with the Soviet era, many of its secrets are gone.

8 June 2017 of the year in 10: 35 on the stretch of stations "Solnechnaya" - "Vnukovo" electric train "Vnukovo - Moscow" killed an elderly woman, crossing the railway tracks in the wrong place. The police established the identity of the deceased — it was Yuliya L. Khrushchev, 77-year-old, Leonid Khrushchev’s daughter, and Nikita Sergeevich’s adoptive daughter.

    If only if .. If Leonid had gone to betrayal, then his father couldn’t hide it ... He died in a stopudovo battle .. Otherwise, the Germans themselves would have carried the message around the world. And about what they had arrested his wife .. So say Molotov’s wife was in the camp, so what?

      I don’t believe in such versions. There are no documents. To draw out the son of the former leader of the USSR is a fashionable trend for sensation hunters at any cost. The author did not mention another version of the death. (190 guns and 4 machine guns) and fell apart in the air. Therefore, there are no remains of the pilot. Everything. Why make a traitor from the dead pilot.

        There are no documents not only from our side, but, most importantly, from GERMAN!
        And if they had, long ago they would have shown.
        So Leonid honestly fought and died, defending his homeland, honor and praise be to him.

        And that his wife was planted, so Khrushchev could not love his daughter-in-law: it was not without reason that they didn’t release her with him.

        On the other hand, there is no real evidence in favor of the version of the betrayal of Leonid Nikitovich Khrushchev. Himself counterintelligence Udilov said that all the documents that could tell about this were carefully destroyed back in Soviet times.
        Sudoplatov also spoke about this in his memoirs - documents on all who were captured during this period were destroyed during the “thaw.” The archives were cleaned up quickly and purposefully. Of course, there are still documents of the USSR signature stamp “Special Folder”, but to the special guards, moreover, there will never be open access departments of various departments. from the word in general. So we won’t see for sure confirmation in one direction or another of the documentary. Be absolutely sure of this bully Well, rumors and versions will fade, and appear again from time to time.

        "came under the fire of Foker190 (4 guns and 2 machine guns) and fell apart in the air" fell apart, but did not evaporate. I admit that there is no body, but fragments of the plane must remain, but they are not.

      Otherwise the Germans themselves would have smashed around the world this message.

      Why would they do that?
      What did Khrushchev do little for the Wehrmacht?
      For only the Kharkov boiler, Khrushchev could be given a pair of higher German crosses on his chest.
      Therefore, why should they, the Nazis, bring down such a valuable helper as Khrushchev.
      Well, they would have smashed around the world that Khrushchev had a son - a traitor, would have removed Khrushchev from all posts and sent to some wilderness, planting corn. Who would be better off from this? Only the Soviet Union, and this is what the Nazis really need. Not at all necessary. Let it work for the benefit of the Reich West, then it harms the Soviet Union.

    Thank. I have known this version for a long time, but for the first time in such details. Of course, we will probably never know the truth, but the truth is that it was Khrushchev who laid the foundation for the collapse of my USSR state.

    from myself: as my father told me, my grandfather is sitting on the street and crying, I’m why, and I can’t eat this Transbaikal bread, squeezes it in my hand, and from there the water flows. Father I will never forgive Khrushchev.

        What's not clear. To make something a body of one volume has a greater weight - increase the density. The weight of bread in its normal form is less than bread soaked in a liquid (in this case, water).

    Be that as it may, in December 1942 Leonid Khrushchev was again at the front. He managed to complete 28 training and 6 sorties, participate in 2 air battles, before disappearing on March 11, 1943.

    That's interesting: G.N. Zakharov, the commander of the 303rd IAD did not mention the name of L.N. Khrushchev, although he has the warmest memories of the 18th Guards Regiment: “The 18th Guards Fighter Aviation Regiment was perhaps one of the best not only in our division, but in the entire air army. The regiment fought from the age of forty-one, carried losses, and by the forty-third it was left from the original composition, maybe two or three pilots, no more.Young fighters had the same difficulty to accumulate combat experience, as in other regiments, but on the fighting efficiency of the collective as a whole reflected.
    When the regiment became part of the 303rd air division, it was commanded by Major AE Golubov, his third commander from the beginning of the war. "And interestingly, Goebbels’s department was silent, and for propagandists it was very valuable material.
    And about the squadron "Normandy." “On March 22, 1943, the Normandy squadron consisting of 15 pilots, 42 mechanics arrived at the Polotnyany Zavod field airfield, where Pe-2 bombers were sitting.
    Until April 10, "Normandy" was part of the 204th bomber division. During this period, the French pilots made their first sorties, won their first victories, suffered their first losses .... So in April 1943, the Normandy squadron joined the "303rd Fighter Aviation Division. On April 16, we landed it at the Vasilyevskoye airfield along with fighter regiment 20. The choice fell on Vasilyevskoye because this airfield was located north of the others and in April there was still more or less decent ground.
    The 303rd Normandy Division arrived in the amount of 11 pilots. And although in the summer of the forty-third year, having already accepted the first replenishment, the Normandy received the regiment’s status ...... “So the Normandy squadron was not part of the 18th Guards Regiment. These are also the memoirs of G.N. Zakharov , commander of the 303rd Iad.

    There was no betrayal of Khrushchev, it was a combat pilot who heroically died in battle.

      Here is the version of the death of L.N. Khrushchev. There is nothing discrediting pilot in it. In principle, it has the right to exist for the simple reason that the mentality, training and reaction of a bomber pilot and a fighter pilot are different. That L. Khrushchev was first a pilot of civil aviation, then a bomber is written in this article. And the story of the search engines, see the link. Still, he looks quite believable. http://bryanskfront.mybb.ru/viewtopic.php?id=1162
      “Other eyewitnesses were interviewed. Anna Dmitrievna Leshakova from Kaluga personally saw a burning plane and a dead pilot in 1943. Rumors that the pilot was precisely the son of Nikita Khrushchev, here have long received the status of historical fact. Local residents do not even put this under doubt, but they are surprised to hear that "someone else is looking for an entot plane" ..
      Thus, during the expedition, the remains of the aircraft were found. Probably, although it is still impossible to state this unequivocally, it was here that Nikita Sergeyevich’s son died. It is difficult to establish how exactly this happened. One thing is clear: there is no reason to suspect Leonid Nikitich of high treason. He died like a soldier. "

          See my comment below. There is the opinion of Stepan Mikoyan, it coincides with your opinion.
          And if you face the truth, then the children of the leaders of the USSR did not sit out in the rear, they fought and unfortunately died, not only Leonid Khrushchev. Killed: Ruben Ibarruri, Timur Frunze, Vladimir Mikoyan, Yakov Dzhugashvili.

By the way, the children of the leaders of foreign countries also did not sit out in the rear, for example, the children of many US cogressmen and senators also fought with pilots, marines, and sailors.

      As dad became Secretary General, so began the search for the remains. We scratched the entire area of ​​a possible fall. They interviewed all the inhabitants of this territory, then in the 50s there were still many living witnesses of air battles. We identified, found and unearthed about thirty places of aircraft crashes. So it’s not that the body, even the remains of Leonid’s fighter plane, was not found.
      So Leonid may not have died heroically in battle, since there are no remains of either him or his plane.
      True, there is other information that, allegedly from certain places where Leonid’s plane could have crashed, five places were not excavated, since Leonid’s dad gave the command to stop the search. Why and why Khrushchev gave such an order, they do not write, it is not known.

      How can I write that Leonid Khrushchev heroically died.
      After all, no one saw his plane shot down, no one saw what a heroic feat he accomplished, no one even saw how he died. Further, despite intensive searches during the war, and after liberation from the occupation of this territory, and after the war, his remains were never found, and not a single fragment was found from his allegedly crashed plane. But huge forces and means were involved in their searches, a large number of people were involved, especially when his dad became the Secretary General and Chairman of the Government of the USSR.
      Therefore, according to materials in the open press Leonid can be called missingunder unknown circumstances.
      And on indirect grounds also published, in the open press Leonid Khrushchev should be called a traitor.

        According to the memoirs of the pilot A. Zamorin, who participated in the same battle, the plane of Khrushchev literally crumbled in the air. It’s one thing when the plane crashes completely and falls apart from the impact, and when it crumbles into pieces in the air, at high speed and altitude ... Now estimate the area on which the fragments scattered, and the probability of their detection. By the way, L. Khrushchev is excluded from the lists of the unit as missing. And "indirect evidence in the open press" does not give you any reason to call him a traitor.

      Stepan Mikoyan, in his memoirs "We are children of war. Memories of a military test pilot" recorded by Artyom Drabkin, recalls Leonid Khrushchev this way: "And the pilot who, as I remember, was a participant in the last battle of Leonid, Ivan Zhuk, told me about his death. , transferred to the 1943th Guards regiment, in which I served then, in 12. The beetle saw in battle on March 11, 1943 (or did he know from the story of a participant in the battle?), as the Focke-Wulf-190 "Gave a turn and Leonid's plane turned into a dive with a left half-turn. Nobody saw the fall of the plane because of the continued battle and strong haze below. The fact that the Focke-Wulf managed to shoot down a more maneuverable yak on a bend can be explained by the fact that Leonid, being a bomber pilot, did not have time to properly master aerobatics on a fighter and could not perform a turn with an extremely small radius.That is fate - it would not prevent the doctors from cutting off his leg, perhaps he would still be alive.
      The place of death of Leonid was not found. I think this is understandable, given the fierce nature of ground battles in these places and the marshland, as well as what they began to look for later, after the liberation of this territory from the Germans. "

    And as a decent person, he could sit out after being wounded somewhere in the headquarters.

    I agree.
    See my comment below. There is the opinion of Stepan Mikoyan, it coincides with your opinion.
    And if you face the truth, then the children of the leaders of the USSR did not sit out in the rear, they fought and unfortunately died, not only Leonid Khrushchev. Killed: Ruben Ibarruri, Timur Frunze, Vladimir Mikoyan, Yakov Dzhugashvili.

      he didn’t run from spare shelves from war, he didn’t hide,

      Here is a special case.
      The man fought, in July 1941 was injured. He was sent for treatment to the hospital. The hospital was in Kuibyshev, where the family of Leonid Khrushchev was evacuated.
      From the recollections of the son of Bulganin:
      There, in house No. 2 on Vilonovskaya Street, evacuated families of members of the government lived. In this house (government house) Leonid had an apartment where he lived with his wife and daughter. I remember how, limping, he walked with his wand and in burkas, despite the warm September days.

      At the same time, the family, wounded lieutenant L. Khrushchev seems to have kept a hotel room. So recalls the son of A. Mikoyan:
      We spent with him, meeting almost daily, about three months. Unfortunately, he loved to drink. At that time, his comrade, who had a “blat” at a distillery, lived in a hotel in Kuibyshev in a hotel. They bought there drinks per week and often drank them in a hotel room. Although I hardly drank, I was often there. Been there and other guests, including girls.

      The conditions for wartime are not even bad. The treatment regimen is free, lives in a government house with his wife and child; having fun and thoroughly having fun in a hotel room, wine and vodka by the river, appetizer, too, probably not offended, buddy buddies nearby, girls nearby, although the wife is at hand.
      Lieutenant Leonid no longer knowing Well, as if to amuse yourself, what else would you make fun of, decided to shoot bottles on the head of drinking companions. And according to another version, he killed a girl with an apple on her head.
      But after all there is a war. At the front, tens of thousands of his peers die every day.
      In the occupation, hundreds of thousands of civilians are tormented, starving, dying. In the rear, next to Leonid, in factories, mines, and collective farm fields, women, old men, and teenagers are torn from work fourteen hours a day to provide the front and rear. AND "Golden twenty five year old boy" exhausted from full, or rather satiated lifenot knowing how to cheer yourself.
      After the murder of a girl (or a major, or a sailor) in March 42, Leonid was immediately discharged from the hospital. But he did not go to the front, fight on a bomber, but decided to retrain on a fighter and studied in a reserve regiment until the end of 1942. And he studied for a fighter probably as well as was treated.

    if the son was a traitor in Khrushchev, then the Khrushchev would be crushed, like a bug of the same name!
    Joseph Vissarionovich for the betrayal of neither "associates" nor their relatives spared - punished ruthlessly

    Somehow, everything is very frivolous. Those. the majority represents the business as they wish. Meanwhile, what we know about Leonid Khrushchev does not speak in his favor. Documents from his case disappeared, and they began to search in reality as soon as he disappeared. Witnesses refused the futurological versions of his death over time. To this it is necessary to add concrete facts from his life, which again speak not in his favor. But with all this, there are no documents that would reveal the whole thing. By the way, it is not very clear why many consider this fact in favor of the version that was launched by Nikita Sergeevich? Not at all. The guys in the organs worked sensible. Could dig something more serious.

    So let’s say and Molotov’s wife was in the camp, so what?
    And Semen Mikhailovich (according to some sources, they could not arrest his wife). Budyonny “mustache” to “Maksimka” stuck, and the role of “crap” was played by “valiant chicks” (probably N.I. Yezhova) until the “hang-up team.” Semyon Mikhailovich Budyonny (“quack not quack” full “St. George Knight” and with his comrade “ Maxim “could defend his chicken for a long time. The Cossack was“ Yep ”). The All-Union Headman was not lucky anymore, his wife sat for a very long time. There was no desire to“ dance on the bones. ”There were“ conspiracy theories ”that Leonid Nikitovich served in the ROA. Not I believe in it. Killed (most likely) like many of our grandfathers. Therefore, Eternal memory !!!

    Quote from the article:
    "In 1939, Leonid voluntarily asked for the Red Army and was enrolled in the preparatory course command faculty of the Air Force Academy. Zhukovskybut did not study at the academy ... "

    Khrushchev’s son was a problem person almost his whole life.
    All his contemporaries and his acquaintances, and his relatives recall only his drunken parties, then some other miscarriages, or even criminal offenses. No one recalls him as a diligent student, or as a disciplined cadet who zealously bitten the facets of military science, or as a well-trained combat pilot, or as a reliable comrade.
    As a teenager, he created problems for dad by contacting street crime. When he studied, he abducted in front of the teaching staff of schools and colleges. When he began to serve, he tried to serve as he wanted, i.e. at its discretion. Hence, in 1940 he received the rank of lieutenant, and in 1943 he was still only a senior lieutenant, and this with his father’s support, as well as the position of crew commander, i.e. actually an ordinary pilot. The pope had all his efforts to divorce the tricks of his son, but his advance in rank and position was no longer enough.
    Without daddy's support, Leonid only had a prison or a penal battalion.
    So they wrote that in the preparatory courses of the command faculty of the Air Force Academy. Zhukovsky Leonid had a conflict with one of the young teachers, which ended tragically for the teacher, he was killed by him. But dad again intervened, hushed up the case, transferred to an accident and Leonid Nikitovich again escaped punishment, but the truth was from studying in Moscow at the command faculty of the Air Force Academy. Zhukovsky he had to refuse. Dad did not have enough opportunities for the academy. Dad transferred the "golden boy" to the Engels Military Aviation School.

        There was such information.
        In the late nineties. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a copy.
        But someone should be saved. Therefore, he recalled it now in the discussion. Maybe someone will post it.
        And that "he shot a man drunk" is not the only case, there were even earlier killings of people. If before the war he received a term of ten years, and this with such a dad, it is clear that it’s not just for drunken parties and other hooliganism.

    There are no documents not only from our side, but, most importantly, from GERMAN!
    And if they had, long ago they would have shown.
    So Leonid honestly fought and died, defending his homeland, honor and praise be to him.

    And that his wife was planted, so Khrushchev could not love his daughter-in-law: it was not without reason that they didn’t release her with him.

    Here I completely agree with you: far from always the father-in-law is favored by his daughter-in-law. True, the so-called “daughter-in-law” also happened when the father-in-law cohabited with his daughter-in-law. There is a lot of literature about this.

      This is unlikely.
      Most likely, the daughter-in-law actively collaborated with the investigation. I said too much, i.e. she said to the investigation everything that she knew about her husband Leonid and about his dad Nikita Sergeevich. Here’s the father-in-law and urchil, since you talk all in a row, so to speak "from and to," and sit "from bell to bell."
      It is bad that the verdict of the trial of L. Sizykh has not been published.

    Good afternoon, just don’t make fun of me right away, but I have other information on this topic. A 177 IAP fighter pilot, in 1943 received an order to intercept and destroy the Pe-2 aircraft. The order was executed and the plane crashed into the territory controlled by Soviet troops. In the flight books of this pilot there is a corresponding entry, I saw it personally. However, this was not included in the number of aircraft shot down. After the war, the pilot found out that the son of Khrushchev was pidotizing the Pe-2, who intended to overtake the secret car at that time to the Germans. According to one version, the son of Khrushchev was recruited at the end of the 30s in one of the Berlin casinos, but I can not vouch for this. Here is such information I have.
