Alexej Adjubei, con la moglie Rada figlia del capo sovietico Nikita KruscevThe 7th of March 1963 he took the courage to begin to defuse the tension with the Soviet Union, receiving personally the son-in-law of Kruscev, Alexei Adjubei, together with his wife Rada, the russian leader's daughter. She was moved and happy and she told the pope:" You have big and hard hands like the farmers, like those of my father". At the end of the meeting Pope John told his secretary: “ It can be either a delusion , or a mysterious thread of the Providence which J have no right to break”. The history has showed the presence of this thread.
