...
Lavrentiy Beria was, on the surface, the silver-tongued lackey of Joseph Stalin.
...
However, his meek appearance was deceiving: Beria was one of the few men who could frighten even Stalin.
...
Beria was a skilled political player. What's more, he was a remorseless killer who didn't hesitate to terminate anyone in his way. As head of NKVD, he would do anything to get a confession. Wherever he went, people went missing. Beria personally oversaw many of Stalin's political purges and used this as an opportunity to satisfy his desire for mass murder. The infamous Gulag work camps all operated under his supervision.
And then there was his main job: Beria's NKVD charged and convicted hundreds of thousands of Russians for high treason, often under false or absurd accusations. Beria also created an effective worldwide spy system and dabbled in assassinations. By February 1941, Beria became the deputy prime minister. Along with his other duties, he oversaw strategic raw materials production for the war effort, naturally using the people he sent to the Gulag camps as slave labor.
If he wasn't despicable enough already, Beria was also a sexual deviant of the highest order. He routinely raped and abused women who had often been taken from the street for that purpose.

It has been suggested that Nikita Khrushchev and Lavrentiy Beria, of the NKVD (secret police), were too afraid to notify the doctors without Stalin's consent.

Stalin; The Court of the Red Tsar. By Simon Montefiore. Knopf, 2005, paper

www.goerings.com [cached]

Lavrentiy Beria, head of the NKVD and perhaps Stalin's most likely successor, has earned a reputation, mostly well-deserved, of being even more sinister than Stalin.

...
Beria managed the waves of terror that began in the 1930s and lasted through the war and after Stalin's death in 1953. Nikita Khrushchev, who came to dominate the collective leadership following Stalin's death, had Beria arrested, tried, and shot.
...
One of the reasons that Khrushchev was able to topple Beria was that Beria was advocating "freeing" East Germany from Soviet domination.
...
As Stalin lay dying from what appears to have been either a heart attack or stroke, Beria made clear to everyone his deep hatred of Stalin
...
This is no apology for either Stalin or Beria, but Simon Montefiore leaves us with a more nuanced view of both Russians.
