Khrushchev's son believes Americans have a better attitude toward his father than Russians

The son of Nikita Khrushchev (1894-1971), Sergei believes that Americans have a better attitude toward his father than Russians.

"Americans have a better attitude toward Nikita Khrushchev than Russians because he is more understandable to them. Though he was terrible, but, on the other hand, he did not start war and promoted peace," Sergei Khrushchev told RIA Novosti.

Khrushchev Jr., a specialist in the field of rocket-space equipment, permanently resides in the USA, where he teaches in one of American universities.

Today is the 110th anniversary since Nikita Khrushchev's birth.

Sergei Khrushchev said he is working on a book devoted to economic reforms conducted under the guidance of his father.

In Sergei Khrushchev's words, the personality of his father is still popular in the USA. He believes that his father "tried to learn from America" and made use of its achievements in industry and agriculture.

In the opinion of American biographer of Nikita Khrushchev, historian William Taubman, whose book "Khrushchev: The Man and His Era" will soon be printed in Russia, if the Soviet leader had remained on his post, his economic and political reforms would have been continued.

"If the Khrushchev of 1964 had preserved power, I think he could have started more radical economic reforms," Taubman told RIA Novosti. Khrushchev was very unpredictable then, he added.

In Taubman's words, Khrushchev partly reminds him of American president Lyndon Johnson. "He was a bright personality too, a bit vulgar, rather rude and very emotional person," the American historian said.
