Leonid Ilyich Brezhnev (December 19, 1906 – November 10, 1982) was the General Secretary of the Central Committee in the Soviet Union.

He was one of only two people who won the Hero of the Soviet Union award four times (The other being Marshal Georgy Zhukov), and he also has more than 200 awards on top of those.

In the Parodies

Brezhnev appears in the Khrushchev Rants series of parodies as Khrushchev's informer. He has been labeled as the Russian equivalent of Otto Günsche. However, unlike Günsche, who tells Hitler dumb things, Brezhnev is more quiet and prefers to do things like stare out of the window. He also appears to be afraid of his balding boss, where he wipes his sweaty palms on his pants. Moreover, he helps Khrushchev defeat Gaddafi by being the target of the papers of utter chaos thrown by Khrushchev (Gaddafi's papers of doom VS Khrushchev's papers of utter chaos by DictatorAntics.)

He is also famous for his fuzzy eyebrows and (like Günsche) his height.
