  Leonid Brezhnev - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Brezhnev belonged to the first generation of Soviet Communists who had no adult memories of Russia before the revolution, and who were too young to have participated in the leadership struggles in the Communist Party which followed Lenin's death in 1924.
Brezhnev's assertion that the Soviet Union had the right to interfere in the internal affairs of its satellites to "safeguard socialism" became known as the Brezhnev Doctrine, although it was really a restatement of existing Soviet policy, as Khrushchev had shown in Hungary in 1956.
In May, Brezhnev visited West Germany, and, in June, he made a state visit to the U.S. The high point of the Brezhnev "detente" era was the signing of the Helsinki Final Act in 1975, which recognised the postwar frontiers in eastern and central Europe and, in effect, legitimised Soviet hegemony over the region.

 EefyWiki - Leonid Brezhnev
Brezhnev focused on the external components (military and foreign affairs) of the Soviet Union and put other people (such as Aleksey Kosygin, Nikolay Podgorny, and later Mikhail Gorbechev) in charge of the internal issues and relations with noncommunist states.
Brezhnev spent a lot of money on military, foreign relations, and aerospace technology, but, essentially, it was at the expense of the economy.
During Brezhnev’s reign, the Soviet Union made some technological advances, however perhaps not to the extent of the U.S. As far as foreign relations, Brezhnev developed his concept known as the Brezhnev Doctrine which basically states that the Soviet Union can use force anywhere there is a threat to socialism.

 netcyclo: Brezhnev, Leonid   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Brezhnev was a Communist Party official who led the Soviet Union for 18 years.
As party head, Brezhnev developed a policy known in the West as the Brezhnev Doctrine, one which asserted the Soviet right to intervene in cases where "the essential common interests of other socialist countries are threatened by one of their number." Use of this justified the joint Soviet Union-Warsaw Pact invasion of Czechoslovakia (1968).
In 1981 the Brezhnev Doctrine was again put to use—in Poland—when the Soviet government helped to mastermind the ultimately failed suppression of Poland's Solidarity union.
