This is an old story from 2001, but I still find it interesting that the grandsons of Stalin and Brezhnev have founded their own Communist Parties

Brezhnev Grandson Joins Stalin Grandson on New Communist Path ... 67242.html
Andrei Brezhnev, grandson of former Soviet leader Leonid Brezhnev, was one of four candidates standing in Russian gubernatorial elections Sunday in the central Tula region, media reported.

Brezhnev, general secretary of the All-Russian Communist Political Movement, was standing against incumbent Governor Vassily Starodubtsev and two other candidates, the ITAR-TASS news agency said.

His grandfather Leonid ruled the Soviet Union as Communist party leader from 1964 until his death in 1982.

The grandson of Leonid Brezhnev's predecessor Joseph Stalin, Yevgeny Djugashvili, has also embarked on a political career in his native Georgia, creating a "New Communist party".

Two other gubernatorial elections were also in progress, in the Amur region in Russia's Far East and in the Yevenki Autonomous Area in central Siberia.
