Iosib Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili, later anglicised as Joseph Stalin (18 December 1878 – 5 March 1953), was the General Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union's Central Committee from 1922 until his death in 1953, when he was killed by the Assassins.
Before he became General Secretary, he had been the right-hand man to Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, although after Lenin's death, the state's approach to implementing communism became corrupted, leading to poverty, famine, and mass genocide on Stalin's orders. He was also infamous for employing a secret police force that quelled any rebellion before it could gain momentum.
He was secretly a Templar puppet who, along with other Templar-influenced leaders Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill and Adolf Hitler, started World War II. The war's ending occurred when Hitler was killed by the Assassins. Soon after, Stalin, Roosevelt and Churchill crafted a post-war peace.
Stalin was killed by the Assassins on 5 March 1953, using a poison that mimicked the effects of a stroke. He was succeeded by Nikita Khrushchev.
