The grandson of Leonid Brezhnev Andrey Brezhnev was like a grandfather, but his path to repeat failed

10 July 2018 in Sevastopol due to a heart problem died 57-year-old Andrei Brezhnev, grandson of General Secretary of the CPSU Leonid Brezhnev.

Andrey Brezhnev, perhaps, was the most prominent figure from the clan Brezhnev since the beginning of the XXI century. His father, Yuri Brezhnev, served as the first Deputy Minister of foreign trade of the USSR and was sent into retirement after coming to power of Mikhail Gorbachev. “Pensioner,” by the way, at that time was only 53 years old.

Andrey graduated from Moscow state University and at the end of the Soviet era worked as the Deputy chief of foreign relations Department of the Ministry of trade of the USSR. In the 1990s, Brezhnev engaged in Commerce, and at the turn of the century he decided to try himself in politics, using the emerging society nostalgic for the days of his grandfather. This was facilitated by the appearance — Andrey really seemed like a young Leonid Brezhnev.

In 1998 he headed “all-Russian Communist social movement” (OKOD). Later Andrey Brezhnev has been a member of the Communist party, led the “New Communist party”, and in 2012 became the first Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist party of social justice (CPSU). He repeatedly participated in elections at different levels, but to seek election somewhere, he had failed. The last attempt to achieve success was the participation in the elections to the state Duma of the seventh convocation from the party “Rodina”. But Deputy Andrei Brezhnev to become failed.

The grandson of Leonid Brezhnev, who tried to build a political career on behalf of his grandfather is the exception rather the rule. Most of the descendants of the statesmen of the Soviet era or even shunned publicity, or operate under a different name.Political scientist and member: Molotov’s grandson everything turned out
