Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev (April 15, 1894 - September 11, 1971) was a human political leader who lived in Russia in the 20th century. From 1958 to 1964 he served as Premier of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
In October 1942, when Khrushchev was a Commissar, he was in Stalingrad and needed to get to Moscow. Sergeant Ivan Romanoff and another Russian soldier entered a German prison camp in an attempt to steal a Ju-52 transport plane that could be used to bring Khrushchev to Moscow. Romanoff was captured, but ultimately succeeded in stealing the plane with the help of John Kirk and the time-lost Pavel Chekov, and Khrushchev was flown to Moscow on it.
