Oleg Tikonov was the last Premier of the Second Soviet Union.[1]


Coming to power in 2004 during the Second Cold War, Tikonov was considered a moderate if not liberal leader. With the tentative support of the Soviet leadership, he defused international tensions and sought to bring the Russian economy back from the brink of collapse.

After ending the Second Cold War in 2005, his biggest accomplishment was the signing of the Tikonov Accords in 2011. In return for free and democratic elections in the Warsaw Pact nations, the United States of America promised desperately needed financial aid and expertise.[2]

Death and Legacy[edit]

On 14 January 2011, at 11:53 p.m. local time, mere hours after signing the Tikonov Accords, Oleg Tikonov was assassinated by Mustafa Khemar Rhasori, a Muslim fanatic. Posing as a militiaman, Rhasori suicide-bombed the Premier's limousine, killing not only Tikonov himself, but also his wife Nadja Tikonova and their two sons Pyotr and Nicholas.[1]

Almost immediately after his death, the struggling Soviet Union fell into civil war and collapsed, with the emerging states eventually being absorbed by the Western Alliance.[1]

One and a half centuries after his death, the planet Tikonov was named in his honor; due to its location, the planet quickly became the leader of the Tikonov Union and its many successor states.[3]
