22nd Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union

The 22nd Congress of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union was held from 17 to 31 October 1961. In fourteen days of sessions (22 October was a day off), 4,413 delegates, in addition to delegates from 83 foreign Communist parties, listened to Nikita Khrushchev and others review policy issues.[1] It was the congress which officially cemented the Sino-Soviet split, and so the last to be attended by the Chinese Communist Party. The congress elected the 22nd Central Committee.
