I had a conversation recently with Sergei Khrushchev, son of the late former Soviet leader, Nikita Khrushchev, as part of my work with the Smithsonian-affiliated Cold War Museum. Mr. Khrushchev is a member of the museum’s advisory board.
Our discussion was wide-ranging and included his thoughts about a so-called new Cold War. We also talked about his father’s relationship with Presidents John F. Kennedy (including the assassination) and Dwight D. Eisenhower, as well as Josef Stalin, Vladimir Putin, and the current U.S. Presidential campaign.
This is part of a series of podcasts I have developed and hosted for the museum. You can hear the complete interview here.
