    Beria in 1953 was more progressive than Gorbachev , what if he came to Power in USSR?

    "
    Stalin’s death, as is known, was joined by three top party officials — Georgy Maksimilianovich Malenkov, Chairman of the Council of Ministers, Nikita Sergeevich Khrushchev
    , First Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee, and Lavrenty Pavlovich Beria. Everyone understood that the established triumvirate is a temporary phenomenon. The first in the deadly race decided to join the head of the Interior Ministry.

    His plan for progressive reforms very soon began to gain popularity in wide circles: the “doctors' cases” were stopped, the first wave of political prisoners was rehabilitated, and physical measures to interrogate people were banned. Some plans of the head of the NKVD, such as the abolition of passport restrictions, the elimination of party control over economic activity, the curtailment of the construction of socialism in the GDR and the unification of Germany, frightened and shocked party leaders. We saw that Beria began to force the events, ”writes Khrushchev in his Memoirs. - I thought that it was necessary to act urgently, and told Malenkov that I needed to talk with other members of the Presidium about this ... I spoke with Bulganin earlier on this issue and knew his opinion. He stood on the correct positions and correctly understood the danger that threatened the party and all of us from Beria. Malenkov also agreed: "Yes, it is time to act." Google Translate

    "On June 26 of the arrest of Beria, a Decree of the Presidium of the Supreme Soviet of the USSR was issued “On the criminal anti-state actions of Beria”, signed by Voroshilov and secretary of Pegov. The decree stated criminal anti-state actions of L. P. Beria aimed at undermining the Soviet state in the interests of foreign capital."
