The details (from wikipedia)


Yuri Leonidovich Brezhnev (Russian: Юрий Леонидович Брежнев; 31 March 1933 – 3 August 2013) was the son of Soviet politician and longtime General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev and Viktoria Brezhneva.

Life and career

Before his retirement, he held a seat in the Central Committee (CC) of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU), and worked as a First Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Foreign Trade. After his forced retirement following allegations of embezzlement and corruption, Yuri became a pensioner. Soon after becoming a pensioner Yuri was arrested, and all his belongings were confiscated.

In contrast to his sister, Galina Brezhneva, who was known for her temper and self-gratification, Yuri was a shadowy figure who disliked public attention. His friends and colleagues claim that he only maintained relations with fellow students of the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation. Yuri was not active in politics following the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.

After the USSR's collapse, Yuri stopped making public appearances, and rejected an offer made by the Russian government to cooperate with them. In 2000, he rejected an offer to appear on a documentary detailing the "Era of Stagnation", an era some believe Brezhnev started. Yuri denied these allegations, claiming that his father had nothing to do with the dissolution of the Soviet Union.

He was married to Ludmila Vladimirovna. Yuri's wife gave birth to two sons.

Andrei Brezhnev

One of his children, Andrei Brezhnev (15 March 1961 – 10 July 2018), accused the Communist Party of the Russian Federation (CPRF) of deviating from communist ideology and launched the unsuccessful All-Russian Communist Movement in the late 1990s.. He was Secretary General of All-Russian communist movement in 1998. By 2004, Andrei had become a well-established member of the CPRF.
