By that time, Kruschev had changed his name to Khrushchev ;-) and Khrushchev was
party chairman. This was after Stalin's death. Incidentally, while he grew up in
the eastern, more russianized half of Ukraine, he was actually born in Kursk,
Russia. I believe the meeting where ETB first met him was during Eisenhower's
trip to Moscow in 1945.

Kursk (after whom the submarine was named) is the Oblastgorod (provincial
capital) of the province by the same name, which lies on the Russian side of the
border with Ukraine, and the city lies on the main highway south from Moscow to
Kharkov (Ukraine), and eventually, to the Crimea.
