  • Description

    VYACHESLAV MOLOTOV, FORMER RUSSIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, AND ARDENT SUPPORTER OF THE NEW DISFAVOURED JOSEF STALIN, WAS SOVIET CHIEF DELEGATE TO THE INTERNATIONAL ATOMIC ENERGY AGENCY WHEN THESE SCENES WERE TAKEN IN VIENNA IN SEPTEMBER NINETEEN SIXTY.

    OBSERVERS FELT THAT MOLOTOV WAS RETURNING TO FAVOUR IN MOSCOW AFTER SERVING A STINT AS AMBASSADOR TO MONGOLIA SINCE NINETEEN FIFTY SEVEN.

    BUT THE RECENT DENUNCIATIONS BY MR. KHRUSHCHEV IN THE SOVIET PRAESIDIUM HAVE CHANGED ALL THAT, AND AT 71 YEARS OF AGE MR. MOLOTOV IS THOUGHT TO BE A VIRTUAL PRISONER WITHIN THE WALLS OF HIS VIENNA APARTMENT IN THE WOHL LEBENGASSE - THE STREET OF THE GOOD LIFE'.

    OUTSIDE STANDS HIS CAR, UNUSED, AND SPECULATION IS THAT ITS SOLE JOURNEY WILL BE TO TAKE THE DISGRACED POLITICIAN ON THE FIRST STAGE OF HIS JOURNEY BACK TO MOSCOW.
