Vasily Iosifovich Stalin was the son of Soviet revolutionary and politician Joseph Stalin, who ruled the Soviet Union for over three decades. Vasily was born from Joseph Stalin’s second marriage with Nadezhda Alliluyeva. Vasily’s life changed drastically after his mother committed suicide following which he and his sister Svetlana were left under the care of Stalin’s personnel. Vasily became a fighter pilot for the ‘Red Air Force.’ He worked his way up rather quickly as he received multiple promotions within a short span of time. In 1947, he became a Lieutenant-General. In 1948, he became Commander of the ‘Air Forces of the Moscow Military District.’ However, Vasily’s career went downhill after his father’s death. Less than two months after Joseph Stalin’s demise, Vasily was arrested for revealing top-secret information. He was sentenced to eight years of imprisonment and disciplinary work. After his release, he was granted a pension of 300 rubles, a three-month vacation in Kislovodsk, and a flat in Moscow. He was also allowed to wear his general's uniform and military medals. Vasily Stalin passed away on March 19, 1962.
