Molotov was a Russian revolutionary under Joseph Stalin in the Bolshevik revolution. Because of this, Stalin made him the deputy chairman of the State Committee of Defense in World War II. He signed the Nazi-Soviet Non-Aggression Pact with von Ribbentrop, set up Lend-Lease credit with the United States, and was on the receiving end of Harry Truman's rather colorful diplomacy. After World War II, he was remained a foreign minister, until he was ousted from the Communist party in 1962 due to his opposition of Nikita Khruschev.
