1773 Ekaterina Khruschova (1758-) and Princess Ekaterina Khovanskaya (1758-1813) by Dmitry Grigoryevich Levitsky (State Russian Museum - St. Petersburg, Russia)

Russia was ably served by Nikita Khrushchev who tried to make Communism deliver on its promise to the peoples of the USSR. Pure economic systems don’t seem to work - including pure Capitalism endlessly touted by the USA, all politicians of its dominant partiy, and the senior politicians of its lesser party. Unfortunately, the people of the USA are learning what people throughout Latin America learned - pure Capitalism and governments that serve only the rich don’t work well either. Khrushchev, called Khrushchov by one reporter when he was running the USSR, tried to gain military parity on the cheap by installing nuclear missiles in Cuba - also to counter the USA stationing similar weapons in Turkey. It didn’t work and the Soviet élite sacked him and pressed on with military buildup until their economy broke. Now the economy of the USA is breaking in slow motion due to prolonged military adventures and inattention to the needs of its people - by both of its major political parties. But the two have entered into a wasteful arms race with at least one of the leaders, the tweeter, fueled by vainglory and testosterone.

Ekaterina and Nikita have the same last name so are they related?
