Stalin died in 1953, replaced eventually by Khrushchev, who pursued a more emollient domestic policy, but a more militant diplomacy (Hungary, Berlin and the Cuba Crisis). His successor Brezhnev invaded Czechoslovakia and Afghanistan, to be succeeded by Gorbachev, who presided over the disintegration of the USSR, but also brought the Cold War to an end.
