Soviet Union: 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union

Soviet Union, Moscow, 14-02-1956


The Personality Cult and its Consequences (Russian: О культе личности и его последствиях), commonly known as the Secret Speech or the Khrushchev Report, was a report to the 20th Party Congress on February 25 1956[1] by Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev. In the speech, Khrushchev criticized actions taken by the regime of Joseph Stalin, particularly the purges of the military and the upper Party echelons, and the development of Stalin's personality cult, while maintaining support for the ideals of Communism by invoking Vladimir Lenin. The speech was a milestone in the Khrushchev Thaw.[2][3] It was also a sign of an intense power struggle within the Soviet leadership in which Khrushchev made an effort to discredit those who had survived the long rule of Stalin, notably Lavrentiy Beria. Superficially, the speech was an attempt to draw the Communist Party of the Soviet Union closer to Leninism. Khrushchev's aim, however, was primarily to garner public acceptance of the arrest and execution of Beria three years earlier,[4] as well as to legitimize his own recently consolidated power (seized from Stalin loyalists Vyacheslav Molotov and Georgy Malenkov). It was known as the "Secret Speech" because it was delivered at a closed session, and its actual text was printed only in 1989 [5], although many Party members had already been informed of the speech as soon as a month after Khrushchev delivered it. In April 2007, The Guardian newspaper (UK) included the speech in their series on "Great Speeches of the 20th Century
