Who became Premier of the Soviet Union after the death of Joseph Stalin? He was known for the "Thaw" that occurred during the 1950s and early 1960s when the Soviet government temporarily reduced censorship and suppression of the Russian people.

Answer Nikita Khrushchev

Unlike Stalin, who was known for purges, eliminating political opponents, deporting millions of people to Siberia, controlling the media, and using heavy propaganda throughout the country, Khrushchev encouraged de-Stalinization. He released prisoners from the Gulags, opened up the media, and limited censorship.
