After a popular rebellion took root in the Eastern bloc nation of Hungary, it was brutally crushed two and a half weeks later by Khrushchev's minions:

"For a decade the Russians used every device they knew to transform an already battered Hungarian people into the living machines that Marx and Lenin and Stalin envisioned. Their secret police brought terror to the night. The Reds rewrote history. They burned books, and sought at whatever cost to stamp out the truth and to crush the hope of freedom wherever it might yet live. Those who stood in the way were liquidated. Hungary's national voice was stilled."

The Hungarian Revolution of 1956 was a nationwide revolt against the government of the Hungarian People's Republic and its Soviet-imposed policies. The popular revolt spanned the period from October twenty-third to the tenth of November, 1956; it was the first major threat to Soviet hegemony in Eastern Europe since Stalin's creation of the Iron Curtain.
