ABSTRACT
The article highlights political fallout of Soviet Union in the wake of its leader Joseph Stalin's death. One of the most pregnant features of the immediate post-Stalin setup is the re-emergence of the army into the fore-front of political life. In the run-up to power, the most direct threat to leader Georgi Malenkov comes from his contemporary Lavrenti Beria who was cautious enough to increase his potential striking power. Malenkov, as the new premier, inherits StaIin's position in the government, but he did not succeed (at least for the time being) in grabbing the all-powerful job of secretary-general of the Communist Party.
