Lavrentiy Beria (Russian: Лавре́нтий Бе́рия) was an influential General Secretary of the Soviet Union who began to secure power after the death of Joseph Stalin in 1953. Beria would be named Secretary General of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union in early 1955, and was known for the establishment of the Bucharest Pact.

His liberal policies of reform and lessened control over other communist nations in Eastern Europe led to him being eventually assasainated by the orders of the Supreme Soviet, led by his former ally, Georgy Malenkov.
