About Leonid Brezhnev
Leonid Brezhnev was the leader of the Soviet Union for 18 years - from 1964 until his death in 1982. During his regime, he focused a lot on strengthening the Soviet military and amassing nuclear arms much to the detriment of the Soviet economy, which eventually led to the collapse of the Soviet Union.
He was married to Viktoria Brezhneva, with whom he fathered two children: a daughter named Galina and a son named Yuri. He remained married to Viktoria until his death.
Despite his inability to improve the Soviet economy, he was voted the best Russian leader of the 20th century in a 2013 poll conducted by the Levada Center.
