In his hour of need, Richard Nixon turned to the beacon of mankind, the friend of the oppressed. To the Soviet Union!

Yes, as he approached his darkest hour of resignation, only the land of real existing socialism, in the form of General Secretary Leonid Brezhnev, reached out to him.

Just released State Department documents show Breshnev’s message came through long time Soviet Ambassador Anatoly Dobrynin. He told Nixon:

“No doubt, there are some people — and not only in the United States — who anticipate that Richard Nixon won’t be able to take it and will crack under the pressure…But, we are pleased to note, you have no intention of giving them that satisfaction.”
