The Soviet Union can be complicated when referring to their leader, as it had its General Secretary and Premier, both with power, so this will be a consolidated poll.

You don't have to like the USSR or any of their leaders to answer, simply which do you find the most interesting, or even, which is the lesser of evils?

Which was the one in that Frida biopic?

Leon Trotsky, I don't think he actually became the leader though, him and Stalin competed.

Lenin was the only one who actually did what he did for Communism and the people of Russia.

Lenin. I don't like him as a leader though, I like his turn-of-the-century Bakuninist-esque phase. A lot of what he writes in The State And Revolution is quite contrary to the authoritative vanguardism he practiced later. He's also the only of the list that at least attempted to advance the interest of workers, even if he had a vile way of doing so. He was definitely a nasty dictator.

This sums up my thoughts on this. I don't think he was quite as nasty as at least Stalin though.

I was tempted to vote Stalin, don't know why.

Edit: If I do know what I'm talking about (I actually have read up on this topic, not sure if I know what I'm talking about anyway), Gorbachev did try to relax censorship and was more diplomatic. Then again, Khrushchev went through the whole de-Stalinization process, that doesn't mean I think he was good.

Yeah. He was a nasty guy, but Stalin was nastier. The rest are just cappie pigs, although they're also better than Stalin. Errone's better than Stalin!

Gorby: Glasnost, and the fall of "the wall" did more for our relations with the USSR than any other. The cold war years of putting my head under a desk and of course Red Dawn, isn't so easy forgotten by us GenX'ers.

But in his importance to Russia, knowing more now about the pre-soviet Russia in the latter Tsar years, I'd have to say Lenin by ending the tyrrany, once and for all. Although whether or not things are better now, in Russia, is of course subjective and arguable. Places like Croatia, for example, who knows? Only they do.

Otherwise, whoever the better chess player was out of them all, which is equally important in my book.

That's Mussolini, but even so it's just an urban legend. Most of the repair jobs and infrastructure projects in general were done or initiated before the fascists came to power, and even then the trains were more often than not late. It's kind of funny that the very last piece of propaganda fascists and vicious totalitarians can spout is just that - unfounded propaganda.

Didn't see Lenin, voted for Nikita. Nikita was hilarious.

Lenin was at the top. Nikita had my vote because he was quite hilarious, plus I have minor respect for him for de-Stalinizing.
