LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The son of a former Russian leader during the Cold War visited Las Vegas to talk about U.S. and Russian relations.

Nikita Khrushchev is known for leading the Soviet Union during the Cold War and even instigating the Cuban Missile Crisis.

Dr. Sergei Khrushchev has a different perspective of the Cold War and how we view nuclear weapons. He says the tension between the U.S. and Russia now mirrors a little bit of what he saw back then, but he says it all comes down to the U.S. wanting to be the one world power.

"Americans want to be the one power in the world The one world power and all others have to just look at them and follow their orders, which is not practical in any politics," Dr. Khrushchev said.

Dr. Khrushchev said the U.S.’s movement to punish Russia is actually hurting America.

"Now we have all this anti-Russian hysteria so we cannot talk about any ties with the United States," Khrushchev said, "They're pushing Russia towards the east and we're making our self-weaker and China stronger."

As for nuclear weapons, Dr. Khrushchev urges the U.S. to back off on trying to control other countries.

"You will not win in the nuclear war, you'll more lose than you will gain, and this creates, that the nuclear weapon's more like a weapon of peace because it's a weapon of stabilization," Dr, Khrushchev said. "There was no war during the cold war because you have nuclear weapons on both sides."

He says by trying to be the only world superpower, the U.S. could be causing more tension.

"You cannot be the world policeman, you cannot just press all the countries and try to keep them just in control," Dr. Khrushchev said.
