Richard Nixon visited in Siberia

In June 1959, Richard Nixon, who was then vice-president of the United States, accompanied by his wife, the suite of journalists and photographers arrived in the USSR to visit, along with Moscow and Leningrad, mysterious Siberia.

Prior to the Cuban missile crisis relations between the USSR and the United States were no less intense, but there were also periods of "thaw". In one of those moments, the leaders of the superpowers planned to exchange visits. Before his trip, the president of the United States David Eisenhower, decided to send a "reconnaissance" Nixon, who used him a lot of confidence. Having visited both the Soviet capital, the future American president went to Novosibirsk. To the destination Americans traveled by Tu-104. The guests visited the factory for the manufacture of machines and hydraulic presses. Then he went to the ballet "Swan Lake" at the Novosibirsk Opera and Ballet Theatre. And the next morning, Vice President visited the Novosibirsk GES. During all excursions Nixon did not hesitate to communicate with ordinary people, patiently answering same questions about the world and the reduction of nuclear weapons, and remember the words that occur frequently in Russian: "Peace, friendship."
