Vyacheslav Molotov

1890- 1986

Soviet Politician

Soviet political figure Vyacheslav Molotov was a close aide to Joseph Stalin. He became active in the Communist leadership in 1921 and ten years later, he became Premier.

Molotov oversaw the forced collectivization of the Ukraine that brought about the devastating Soviet famine in the 1920's - 30's.

From 1939 to 1949, Molotov served as Foreign Minister. He negotiated the infamous Soviet-German non-aggression pact. His opposition to Khrushchev cost him his power.
