Leonid Ivan Bzovsky (b. January 24, 1940) (commonly known by his initials as LIB) was a Chawosaurian Politician who served as the 7th Prime Minister of the Empire of Chawosauria from January 1, 1980, to December 31, 1989.
Bzovsky was appointed by Timothy Max Roosevelt in 1979, he served under Timothy from 1980 to 1989. Bzovsky was the first Communist to become Prime Minister of Chawosauria, also the first Prime Minister appointed by Timothy Max Roosevelt.
As Prime Minister, Bzovsky was instrumental in cracking down on human rights and helped in dismantling the Christianization program, kept the Communist Coalition in power in the 1985 Legislative Elections, and at the end of his tenure, Bzovsky criticized and opposed the 1989 wave revolutions, and left office with a 371-229 margin Communist majority in the Chawopolis Palace after the 1989 Legislative Elections.
The historical event that led to Bzovsky's birth was the Holodomor, which was a rural famine taking place in Soviet Ukraine that was orchestrated by the Soviet Government commanded by Joseph Stalin at the time, the famine was so bad for the isolated small rural Bzovsky family that Bzovsky's father, Walerian Bzovsky, had to marry his niece and literally have children with her, all except Leonid Bzovsky would die before adulthood, making Leonid the "lucky child" or "the chosen one" by his community.
Leonid Ivan Bzovsky was born to Walerian Bzovsky, a Ukrainian farmer, and a maid, Alisa Bzovsky. His family suffered in a series of Soviet famines of 1932-1933. Leonid was born during World War II, his father fought for Hitler against Stalin, but Leonid supported the Soviets. When World War II ended in 1945, Leonid's father was deported to Siberia for treason and died in 1951.
Leonid's mother died in 1953 of influenza and so did his siblings. Leonid survived and became independent at 13. Leonid entered the Soviet Armed Forces in 1957 and fought in the Vietnam War. After the war, he entered Moscow State University and graduated in 1964. He witnessed the rise of Leonid Brezhnev in the same year.
Throughout the whole Brezhnev era, Leonid supported the rise of Timothy Max Roosevelt. In the 1975 federal election, Leonid voted for Timothy Max Roosevelt for Supreme Leader at the ballot and was mentioned several times for consideration for Prime Minister.
In 1979, Bzovsky was nominated by Timothy Max Roosevelt to replace Bismarck as Prime Minister of the Empire of Chawosauria, the first Atheist, and Communist in Chawosaurian History to have ever reached this position of the Chawosaurian Government. Bzovsky helped Timothy dismantled the Christianization project, passed laws systemically incarcerating Christians for their faith and spread Communist propaganda all across Chawosauria.
When the Cold War was finally coming to an end in the United States' favor, Bzovsky and Timothy's relationship began to break apart, and as the Soviet Union was on the verge of extinction in 1989, Bzovsky announced his retirement on a televised announcement which angered Timothy Max Roosevelt and decided to pick Shang J. Parker, who Timothy liked more than of any of his Prime Minister.
On December 31, 1989, Bzovsky left office and was replaced by Shang J. Parker. After leaving office, Bzovsky moved to Tokyo in 1993, and on September 25, 2018, Bzovsky was diagnosed with Glioblastoma, and on September 26, 2018, widespread sympathy from both Communists and Capitalists sparked in Chawosauria nationwide, even the Christian community, the exact community he scorned during his premiership in the 80s, gave sympathy to Bzovsky. Bzovsky became the first former Prime Minister since Garfield Lucas Webster to have been diagnosed with Glioblastoma.
His over-sized left eye made Bzovsky an icon, especially a healthcare icon, as an over-sized eye deformity epidemic struck Chawosauria in the early 2010s, leading to the naming of the newly genetically mutated deformity in Bzovsky's honor, calling it the Bzovsky Eye epidemic.
Early Life Edit
Leonid Ivan Bzovsky was born on January 24, 1940, in Lviv, Ukrainian SSR, Soviet Union, to Walerian Bzovsky, and Alisa Bzovsky. Leonid was born during World War II, and his father supported the Nazis because of his hatred for Stalin over the Ukrainian famines, and his mother was a nurse for the Nazis. When the Nazis ended up losing the war in 1945, his father was executed for treason, and his mother died of the flu in the 50s. Leonid at 13, became independent because of his family's deaths. This childhood tragedy of losing his father to the Soviet Government influenced Bzovsky to get involved in Soviet politics to avoid the same fate his father faced when he committed treason against the USSR.
In 1956, his older brother, Mikhail, died of a disease caused by his parents' uncle-niece inbreeding, and in 1959, Bzovsky's younger brother, Vladimir, died of the same cause.
Bzovsky is a Crimean Tatar, and he suffered from an Intellectual disability because his parents were uncle and niece. Leonid suffered from only one deformity and that is his left eye is slightly bigger than his right eye, and that left eye doesn't work, so he's blind on the left eye and it's physically obvious because the left eye is pure white which means he has no iris with the left eye but his right eye has an iris on it, Leonid is unable to blink his left eye or move it.
In 1959, Bzovsky married Stalina Sadowski and had five children between 1962 to 1980. In 1957, he went to Moscow State University and graduated in 1961, in 1971, he went on to fight in the Vietnam War.
Military Service (1971-1975) Edit
Bzovsky, despite his mental disabilities, was tough enough to fight in the Vietnam War, he was intelligent enough to know the enemies. Bzovsky was joined by Timothy Max Roosevelt II as an assistant to him, and between 1971, until the fall of Saigon in 1975, Bzovsky fought in Vietnam. Both Timothy II and Bzovsky entered Chawosauria as war heroes.
Entrance to Chawosauria Edit
In 1976, Bzovsky became a Chawosaurian Citizen and he witnessed the rise of the Communist Party, Bzovsky joined the when Jonathan Dragan Bismarck XVII was prime minister, Timothy Max Roosevelt, the new dictator of Chawosauria, was looking for a replacement for Bismarck. Timothy II recommended Bzovsky, because of his military experience, Timothy agreed.
Premiership (1980-1989) Edit
Nomination and Confirmation in 1979 Edit
On October 3, 1979, within two months before Timothy's first midterm election, Timothy nominated Bzovsky for Prime Minister to replace the four-termer, Jonathan Dragan Bismarck XVII. Timothy II denied requests for hearings because Timothy II's secret about Bzovsky was that he suffers from an intellectual disability and that he would not be able to answer questions properly, and Timothy followed his son's objections and not to allow a hearing on Bzovsky, opposition leader, George Windsor, accused Timothy of rushing the nomination through before the midterms. Timothy denied the allegations and accused Windsor of using this accusation as a publicity stunt to win the Chawopolis Palace. Timothy II offered testimonies to be made for Bzovsky, the testimonies never happened. On October 31, 1979, Bzovsky was approved by the Palace in a 317-283 margin, only 20 Communist Incumbents voted against Bzovsky. On January 1, 1980, after the Communists won the midterms in a 418-182 margin, Bzovsky was sworn in by Timothy, but Timothy didn't expect how difficult swearing Bzovsky in was because of his mentality.
After taking office, Bzovsky cracked down on human rights, overtook Chawosauria's cinema industry, and became instrumental in breaking down Christianization and Democracy.
Dismantling of Christianization Edit
Bzovsky, under the influence of ministers appointed by Timothy but not Bzovsky because of the realization that Bzovsky was mentally handicapped, began to help Timothy dismantle more Christianization programs and started cracking down on Human Rights for Chawosauria's Christian civilians. Bzovsky advised the Palace to restrict marriage benefits for Christian couples in Chawosauria, heterosexual or homosexual, and ban these Christian couples from having sex. One of Bzovsky's sons, Leonid Ivan Bzovsky II, hung out with Timothy Max Roosevelt several times between 1980 to 1987. In 1982, Leonid Ivan Bzovsky II fell in love with and started dating Juliana Owens, one of Timothy Max Roosevelt's granddaughters, Juliana's brother, Julian Owens, one of Timothy Max Roosevelt's grandsons, hated the Bzovsky family. Bzovsky gave Timothy more power to exterminate Christians in the Empire of Chawosauria.
Cracking down on Human Rights for Christians Edit
Leonid Bzovsky engaged with the Chawopolis Palace to give Timothy more power to exterminate Christians and take away their Human Rights. Bzovsky wasn't intellectual enough to negotiate, so his advisors do all the negotiation for him. Bzovsky prevented Christians from voting and receiving government benefits that help them, Bzovsky also made it difficult for Christians to find work, jobs, and homes.
Mental Instability and Challenges Edit
Bzovsky knows little about Communist Politics, but on the subjects of math, reading, history, and science, Bzovsky struggles to learn on all of them. Bzovsky suffers from Schizophrenia, and he couldn't read, write, or count. Timothy Max Roosevelt realized that Bzovsky suffers from an intellectual disability, Timothy expressed concern on how would this affect his public image. Timothy had great respect for Bzovsky because of his military service for the Soviet Union in Vietnam.
1985 Legislative Elections Edit
The Communist Party retained their 418 Communist supermajorities, the Communists failed to make gains but succeeded not to lose any seats, all 418 Communists and all 182 Anti-Communists were all reelected. The results were steady because of Bzovsky's efforts to keep the Communist Supermajority, but his mental disability made it impossible for that Communist Supermajority to gain more seats. Timothy Max Roosevelt was deeply comfortable with the results.
1987 Attempt to take away Women's Suffrage Edit
Prime Minister Bzovsky attempted to take away women's rights to vote in March - October 1987. Siting women's suffrage was "a threat to a civilized society". Bzovsky ordered the Communist Party-controlled Chawopolis Palace to introduce a package of legislation cracking down on women's rights. On March 20, 1987, the package was introduced and was debated between May 2, 1987 - October 3, 1987. On the day of the vote, the package secured strong majority support but suffered a filibuster from Chawosaurian Senator Samantha A. Montgomery and House of Commons member, Jonathan Lothian MacCarthy, on October 10, 1987. The package failed with 0 votes for and 0 votes against because of the Montgomery-MacCarthy filibuster.
Fall of the Soviet Union and the 1989 Wave Revolutions Edit
Since 1985, the Soviet Union, Bzovsky's homeland, has been living under political instabilities, and in 1989, the Anti-Communist wave revolutions began, after Bzovsky left office in 1989, Germany reunified in 1990, the Soviet Union demised in 1991, and by 1993, other Communist nations, except for China, North Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, and Laos, all got wiped out of existence. When Bzovsky learned the Soviet Union fell, he expressed depression and discomfort, he was at home celebrating Christmas with his family despite not being Christian.
1989 Legislative Election Edit
Bzovsky spent the whole day and night, December 31, 1989, which it's the day his term expires because Timothy Max Roosevelt nominated Shang J. Parker to replace him, trying to make sure the Communist Coalition keeps their 418 seat supermajority, spending the whole day of endless sleep, when it was announced that the Communist Coalition wins again, it was announced that the Communists went from 418 to 371, so because of the 1989 wave revolutions going on, the Communists lost their supermajority by preserving just only 371 seats and failed to preserve 47 seats, giving George Windsor 229 seats for the Democratic Socialist Coalition. Bzovsky walked into Timothy Max Roosevelt's office and told Timothy "We preserved our majority, but we lost 47 seats, sir." Timothy told Bzovsky "That's fine as long as we still have a majority, thank you for your loyalty" and left his office in a mixed feeling of depression because he lost his supermajority but relieved because he preserved his Communist majority government. On January 1, 1990, the 371-263 government began.
Relationship with Timothy Max Roosevelt Edit
The relationship between Timothy Max Roosevelt and Leonid Ivan Bzovsky was always friendly, Bzovsky showed fierce loyalty to Timothy Max Roosevelt, Bzovsky's biographer, Joseph Clark, described their relationship as "a bromance between two bloodthirsty Communists" and in private, Timothy and Bzovsky allowed their families to bond, Timothy Max Roosevelt's granddaughter, Juliana (Juliet) Owens and Bzovsky's son, Leonid Ivan Bzovsky II, dated since 1982, went to the prom as a couple in 1988, and broke up in 1989.
Another of Timothy's grandchildren, Julian Owens, and another of Bzovsky's children, Ewelina Bzovsky, began dating since 1987 and broke up in 1995 when Julian cheated on Ewelina with his first cousin. Another grandchild of Timothy Max Roosevelt, Timothy Max Roosevelt III (1970-2015), slept with Leonid Bzovsky's daughter, Elzbieta Bzovsky, in 1987. Bzovsky children and the Owens children enjoyed watching The Jetsons, Out of This World, The Yogi Bear Show, and enjoyed listening to Michael Jackson, and other Pop music.
Post-Premiership (1990-present) Edit
Bzovsky left office on December 31, 1989, 12:41 PM and Shang J. Parker took over Bzovsky's position on January 1, 1990, 1:30 AM, Bzovsky and Parker were not friends at all. While Bzovsky was being escorted to his private jet by Parker, Bzovsky finally accepted Parker as a friend and an ally because they're both Communists. While Bzovsky was sitting in his private jet, about to take off at 3:01 to 3:05 AM, he was concerned for the future of Communism and Timothy Max Roosevelt's party with a weaker majority.
Two years later, Bzovsky blasted the United States for the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, and in 1992, Bzovsky was not impressed with the election of Bill Clinton in 1992, and throughout the 1990s after 1993, Bzovsky supported Shang J. Parker's Post-Cold War Communist policies. After the September 11 Attacks, Bzovsky promoted both Islamophobic and Anti-American propaganda. Bzovsky began his work in the Middle East promoting Antisemitism, Anti-Zionism, and Homophobia.
On February 3, 2019, in a Chawosaurian Political History convention at Tokyo, Bzovsky publicly criticized Vladimir Putin for "not being Sovietistic enough" and said his efforts to intervene in the United States' democratic system in 2016 was "a petty sign of weakness". Bzovsky went on to say "Putin should respect America's sovereign rights to intervene in their own affairs" and called on Putin to resign from the Presidency. Bzovsky criticized the current state of Russia for "being too Fascistic as Nazi Germany" and believed that although Russia is trying to relive the USSR times, Bzovsky said that the Soviet Union and current Russia are not the same.
After leaving office in 1989, Leonid Ivan Bzovsky received an approval rating of 69%. Bzovsky today in 2019 is widely viewed favorably by Chawosaurians. Bzovsky's favorability ratings today is at the high 90s, by both Communists and Democrats.
Bzovsky's reputation among the Christian community is negative, as well as his reputation among Chawosauria's LGBT community, and Muslim community. Bzovsky was aligned with one of Chawosaurua's most powerful politicians. Bzovsky was instrumental in dismantling Christianization, democracy, and Emperor Santiago's policies.
Civil Rights record Edit
Although Bzovsky took a far-left position on economic and labor issues, Bzovsky took a far-right stance against the idea of civil rights. Bzovsky opposed racial equality and gender equality. Bzovsky attempted to crack down on women's voting rights in 1987, and said women voting was "a threat to society".
Bzovsky, after becoming Prime Minister in 1980, signed an executive order banning homosexuals from federal employment on behalf of his premiership and strengthened his predecessor's policies against federal employment among women by creating a wage gap. Bzovsky signed a series of executive orders ordering state and local governments who do hire women for government jobs to pay women much lower than men, and ordered state and local governments the same wage gap among sexual orientation, women, and homosexuals were paid lower wages than men and heterosexuals.
In the wake of the HIV-AIDS pandemic, the Bzovsky administration ordered a series of anti-gay investigations against Bath Houses in Chawosauria. Bzovsky asked notable investigators and journalists such as future Prime Minister Jonathan Sidney MacCarthy III, and Jonathan Dragan Bismarck XIX to work together to do a hostile investigation against Chawosauria's LGBT Community. The investigation was met with intense scrutiny as legal action was taken against MacCarthy and Bismarck for privacy violations, and the Bzovsky administration withdrew their hostile anti-gay investigation due to public backlash.
