Imitate Yugoslavian council communism.
Increase support for space program.
Retain and expand intelligence apparatus to thwart Western sabotage.
Denounce Stalin's "social fascist" hypothesis and restore policy of providing material aid to left-wing movements across the world.

Try to survive, try not to damage anything, retire as soon as possible.

5-year plan for self-sufficient regions, making way for dismantling the state
>>
1) Further russification of eastern europe
2) Agricultural policies that can actually work
3) Not even bother starting the space race
4) Fund communist terrorist groups in Italy to try and get deeper into europe
5) Take the middle east under my sphere of influence
6) Avoid cuban crisis
7) renew bureaucracy

Pretty much it.

This guy got it. The command economy was too fragile in the long run, it would also have made a more polycentric eastern bloc possible.

Though, I would probably have been slower with the de-stalinziation than Khrushchev - no need to piss of Mao and cause the entire western communist movements to turn into a primordial ooze of cells.

>4) Fund communist terrorist groups in Italy to try and get deeper into europe
Not sure that this would have worked, it's hard to make people revolt against their government when the economy was booming as it did during Bretton Woods - I would honestly have been a socdem back then because socialism through parliamentarian means really seemed like a reality back then.

Throw a huge party in Moscow invite everyone and I mean everyone! With live music, booze women, Western diplomats, keep the party going for as long as possible and hope someone more capable than myself attends, I will then appoint them as my successor and retire to my Dacha.

1. Initiate a space program
2. Launch every single ethnic Russian into outer space

That's it, Russia is now fixed.

Kill all gulag prisoners both political and normal. The gulag system was failing, could not sustain itself. Then i would probably do what china did in the 80s, without the fucking real estate bubble.

1) Instant U-turn on Lysenkoism

3) Come out as supporter of a Palestine state, hopefully prevent the '67 debacle
4) No missiles on Cuba
5) Establish the Washington-Moscow hotline before it is needed
6) Do my best to remove Kim from his godhood dictator position with the help of China
7) Don't hurt the Poles too bad.
8) East Germany will not become a Police state.
9) Prevent Chernobyl
10) Use my physics education to help physics
