23 year old Nureyev in Paris shortly after he defected to the West in 1961. Soviet citizen Nureyev asked for political asylum at a Paris airport when he was about to be taken back to the Soviet Union after he refused to stop associating with Westerners while on tour with the Kirov. KGB archives show that Nikita Khrushchev personally signed an order to have Nureyev killed.
