Anatoly Dobrynin

Anatoly Fyodorovich Dobrynin (Russian: Анатолий Фёдорович Добрынин, born November 16, 1919) is a Russian statesman and a former Soviet diplomat and politician. He was Soviet Ambassador to the United States, serving from 1962 to 1986 and most notably during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He was appointed by Nikita Khrushchev.

Anatoly Dobrynin had the unique experience of serving as Soviet Ambassador to the US during the terms of six US Presidents (Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Carter and Reagan). The cold war rivalry made his position one of the key elements of Soviet-US global geopolitical dialogue.

After his long term as ambassador, he returned to Moscow, joining the Secretariat of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union (CPSU) and leading the International Department of the CPSU Central Committee for two years.

He attended the December 1989 Malta Summit that marked the end of the Cold War.

His book, "In Confidence: Moscow's Ambassador to Six Cold War Presidents", was published in 1995. (It was last reprinted in 2001 as ISBN 0295980818.)
