Each of the leaders of the USSR led his country to the victory of communism. However, as a rule, the prospect of taking advantage of the benefits of this bright future did not seduce either the children or the grandchildren of the leaders of the state. Many of them preferred to go abroad at the first opportunity, including to the country of the so-called main potential enemy - the United States.
How Stalin's beloved daughter ended up in the USA and what is the granddaughter of the leader of all nations doing now
For the first time, Svetlana Iosifovna Alliluyeva used a very specious excuse to escape from the USSR. In 1966, she obtained permission to travel to India to bring home the ashes of her civil husband, Brajesh Singh. Having completed this mission, Svetlana applied to the American Embassy in Delhi with a request for political asylum and arrived in the States in April 1967. Hastily married, she became Lana Peters, gave birth to a daughter, Olga.
Wanting the girl to grow up as a real American, Alliluyeva did not object when she asked to rename her Chrissy. In the fall of 1984, Alliluyeva and her daughter unexpectedly returned to the Union, received a Soviet passport. But soon she doubted the correctness of moving to Moscow: relations did not work out either with the children or with the government. Less than two years later, Svetlana renounced Soviet citizenship and left for America - this time forever. Alliluyeva died in 2011 from cancer in a nursing home. In her last interview, she stressed that she had always hated Soviet Russia and felt like a real American.
Stalin's granddaughter Olga Peters (married Chris Evans) does not communicate with journalists, so little is known about her life today.
Together with friends he rents an apartment in Portland, works in a clothing store. Chris Evans suffered from breast cancer. Dabbles in drugs, often changes hair color; Several years ago, she shocked social networks with photographs in shorts, torn tights and with a toy machine gun and a pistol in her hands. He hates Russians and Russians - everyone except his mother.
Contrary to the beliefs of the famous dad, or how the youngest son of Nikita Khrushchev is building a career as a scientist in the States
Sergey Nikitovich Khrushchev, a graduate of the Faculty of Electrovacuum Engineering and Special Instrumentation at the Moscow Power Engineering Institute, successfully worked in the rocket and space industry in the 1960s. He was deputy director of NPO Elektromash, held the position of professor at the Higher Technical School named after V. I. Bauman. After the funding of scientific projects by the state stopped, Sergei changed his field of activity and started teaching history.
In 1991, he was invited to one of the most prestigious educational institutions in the United States - Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island. The course of lectures on the history of the Cold War lasted for a year. However, Sergei Khrushchev chose not to return to his homeland. With the support of Richard Nixon and George W. Bush, he received a permanent residence permit in 1993 and US citizenship in 1999. Today Khrushchev's son still lives in Providence, works at Brown University. On his account - several books about the reforms of his father.
Why Andropov's granddaughter preferred the Miami dance school to the Bolshoi
The granddaughter of the General Secretary of the Communist Party and the chairman of the KGB of the USSR, Yuri Andropov, followed her husband to America in the 1990s, who decided to start his own business there. This was not Tatyana's first visit overseas: noticing her daughter's passion for ballet, her father, Igor Yuryevich Andropov, sent the girl to study in the States. Teachers spoke enthusiastically about the abilities of the young dancer, and some even predicted the glory of Maya Plisetskaya for her.
Returning to her homeland, Tatyana Igorevna graduated from the Moscow State Academy of Choreography and entered the service at the Bolshoi Theater. However, it was not possible to gain a foothold in the troupe, so she without hesitation went with her husband to the United States. The family settled in Miami. The daughter of Tatiana and Vasily, Nicole, was born there.
Having failed to achieve the desired results in business, Tatyana's husband left his wife and child. Having mastered English, the woman began teaching choreography at a dance school, giving private lessons. She dreamed of creating a Russian ballet school in Miami. The work made it possible to exist quite comfortably. And yet, a few years later, Tatyana Igorevna returned to her homeland. In 2009, in Moscow, she created and headed the Yuri Vladimirovich Andropov Historical Heritage Foundation. The granddaughter was proud of her grandfather and wanted to glorify his name. However, the dreams were not destined to come true: after just a year, Tatiana died of a fast-flowing cancer at the age of 42.
How Gorbachev's daughter got a job in San Francisco
The daughter of the last Soviet leader turned 9 when her father was appointed First Secretary of the Stavropol City Committee of the CPSU. Irina was aware of the high status of her family and made every effort not to let her parents down. She graduated from school with a gold medal, entered the Stavropol Medical Institute. After Mikhail Sergeevich became the secretary of the Central Committee of the CPSU, she moved with her parents and husband, her classmate Anatoly Virganskiy, to Moscow and continued her studies at the Medical Institute. Pirogov. She defended her thesis, became a candidate of sciences, worked at the Cardiological Research Center.
Despite the high position of her father, Irina did not strive for publicity, preferring household chores and raising two daughters to social life. After the collapse of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev created and headed the Gorbachev Fund and offered his daughter cooperation. In 1994, Irina decided to leave her job and entered the International Business School of the Academy of National Economy. Having received the necessary knowledge in economics, business and management, the woman started working in the Fund.
When Raisa Maksimovna Gorbacheva ended up in the clinic and she needed constant care, Mikhail Sergeevich devoted himself entirely to his wife, and appointed his daughter the vice-president of the Foundation with all presidential powers. Since then, Irina spends most of her time traveling around the world. She lives mainly in San Francisco, where the main office of the Gorbachev Fund is located, and prefers to spend time outside the post-Soviet space.
At this time, their eminent dads ruled the country. And in their ideas about comfort and gastronomic preferences differed from those of their overseas children.
