1963—Nikita Khruschev Announces the USSR Working on H-Bomb
Amidst the sharp political conflicts of 1961-1963 Nikita Khruschev's announcement of the USSR having successfully created an H-bomb had an explosive effect by itself.

Little less that two centuries later Peter the Great was to become the first Russian Emperor, once again changing the status of the country to that of an empire. 2012 marks the 465th anniversary of the historic coronation of Ivan IV.
