However, we note the main thing for us in the story of the Brezhnev - the peak of the sad Sino-Soviet confrontation, come down to the bloody clashes took place just on the 1968-1969 years. It was at that time there was an acute political crisis in Czechoslovakia. In January 1968 in Prague, was replaced by the party leadership, led by the Communist Party of Czechoslovakia was Alexander Dubcek. It was a simple man, party worker, Slovak nationality, far from all sorts of intrigues politicized, but weak, he was surrounded by pro-Zionist figures, of which always was full in Prague. Later rightly I wrote one of them, Zdenek Mlynar, that "Dubcek did not think about breaking with Moscow." It's too many people associate with it not only the fact that he spent in the Soviet childhood and youth, but also the fact that he sincerely believed in the ideals of socialism, but would free them from the scabs of Stalinism. He naively believed that communism can be done democratically. Personal honesty and integrity provided Dubcek in Czechoslovakia enormous prestige. "In the period of the" Prague Spring "- Mlynar wrote - people saw Dubcek symbol of the great ideals of democratic socialism."
