    Back in the late 60s, an American menswear company ran this ad suggesting that Premier Kosygin should bring his clothing up to date and make it better fitting. Don’t know what the Kremlin’s response was, but it probably would have stated that the New Socialist Man/Woman had better things to worry about than if his clothes fit or not.

      • Elena née Lenuța Petrescu joined the Communist Party in 1939. She was well known in communist women’s movements long before her husband Mr. Ceausescu came to power in Romania. Her pronounced bulbous nose gives her away every time.

        • Told you you’re wrong, bud
          The lady in the picture is Jovanka Broz, wife of President Tito of Yugoslavia.
          Most of the pictures on this blog came from here:

  2. Terrible… the bad, the worst and the ugly
    Mrs Hruschev looked like a nice babushka that grew up in a kolhoz and remained a kolhoznik all her life no matter how nice and how many languages she spoke.
    Mrs. Brejnev is next, followed by Ms ex-Putina, Ms Yeltsin and Mrs Medvedev. Only Mrs Gorbachev looked decent.
    Mrs Brejnew looks like her front teeth were metal clad… horrible, another kolhoz reminder

  3. gorbachev and his wife were no communists. gorbachev was a member of Club of Rome a globalist masonic order and it shows in everything he didi jus as in his wives clothing. He was a saboteur and ruined the great USSR on purpose. He also was the main player in FIMACO affair which stole 50 bln US$ ( 1991. denominated, today much much more ) and his Belazheva gang established oligarchy in Russia. Very sad.

    • The communist rulers of the USSR were all criminals who used murder and exile to rise to the Top. If some random Politburo member was deemed too Conservative, they simply had him killed.

      The Soviet people were tired of the top-down control of consumer goods. They craved free and open market system. The lack of consumer goods in Russia was appalling in Soviet times.
