The 20th Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was held during February 14—February 26, 1956.

Nevertheless, the WPK is in the camp of those who see modern revisionism as originating in the 1950s, particularly centring on the infamous 20th Congress of the CPSU, rather than in the camp of those who see modern revisionism as a phenomenon of the late 1980s, associated with Gorbachev.
Khrushchev had made his speech to the 20th Congress of the CPSU heralding the onset of modern revisionism (revisionists surfaced in a number of parties and tried to destroy, for example, the CPGB) and the imperialists launched a fierce international anticommunist campaign.
Indeed the CPSU fraternal delegate to the 3rd Congress of the WPK (who was none other than a certain L. Brezhnev) made a veiled attack on the WPK leadership.

By now the Marxist-Leninist members of the Politburo of the Central Committee of the CPSU were satisfied that leading Party members in Leningrad were involved in a conspiracy aimed at diverting the Party's policy away from Marxist-Leninist principles and at driving a wedge between the Leningrad Party and the Central Committee.
Although the Central Committee of the CPSU had announced in 1946 the publication of Stalin's 'Works' in 16 volumes, in 1949 publication in the Soviet Union was halted at Volume 13, covering the period only to 1934.
It was not until the infamous 20th Congress of the CPSU in February 1956 that the 'rehabilitation' of the conspirators in the 'Leningrad Affair' was made more widely known -- and even then only in the 'secret speech'.
