      In the Soviet Union, there was Nikita Khrushchev's secret speech of denouncing Stalin. In China, there was the more careful, slower process of de-Maoization starting in the late 70's. After three years Brezhnev returned to the Secretariat, where he allied himself with other leaders who were unhappy with Khrushchev's record. In this group succeeded in removing Khrushchev from power, after which Brezhnev took over the most important of Khrushchev's former positions, that of first secretary of the party's Central Committee.

For nearly a year, supplies from American planes sustained the over 2 million people in West Berlin.

    Mao and all his deeds disappeared from Chinese history books. As an instrument of perestroika, glasnost allowed. Soviet society during the Leonid Brezhnev years was marked by all of these characteristics EXCEPT: The ____ occurred while Khrushchev was in power. Abstract. During his eighteen years as General Secretary, Leonid Brezhnev’s one major policy innovation was détente, the relaxation of tensions with the West (razryadka napryazhennosti). In some respects, détente was simply a continuation of Khrushchev’s thaw.
