Richard Nixon Meets Russian People In Siberia

Posted on March 11, 2012 by


In June 1959, Richard Nixon who was then vice president, accompanied by his wife and a suit of over 100 journalists and photo reporters, arrived at the USSR to visit, along with Moscow and Saint Petersburg, that mysterious and faraway Siberia.

It is unlikely that he was shown labor camps and prisons or saw bears walking in the streets because the action took place mostly in Novosibirsk. However, according to photographs taken by Howard Sochurek, Nixon really enjoyed his stay in the USSR.

    Wow! I never imagined he (Nixon) could be so young. By the time I became politically aware Nixon was a chubby middle-aged man with a balding head.

    I was a year old when Nixon lost to Kennedy.
